Demi Lovato Punched Dancer in Eye Before Entering Rehab

| by

Since Demi Lovato checked herself into a treatment center, fans have attacked Joe Jonas and new girlfriend Ashley Greene, thinking that they were the reason behind her need to seek medical help.

The truth is, it may have had a little bit to do with Ashley’s presence during the Jonas Brothers tour, but that wasn’t what sent her over the edge…..Reportedly. Allegedly, Demi had a bit of an altercation with one of her backup dancers named Alex Welch AKA “B Girl Shorty”.

E News’ Ken Baker tweeted the above information regarding the fight, saying, “I’m told the dancer Demi Lovato allegedly struck was Alex Welch - goes by profesh name “B Girl Shorty” + danced for Biebs..”

Here’s a photo of Alex with the black eye that she “reportedly” received from Demi. The word on her is that she’s 21 years old and was a close friend of Demi’s. Demi had chosen her to dance with her on her 17th birthday.

The fighting incident stemmed from something that happened the night before. According to a snitch, Demi invited her favorite people to dinner and then started parting. The spy said, “As she did on most nights off, Demi invited her band, dancers and her parents to dinner. Afterward, she broke off with a very small group.”

The source went on to reveal that Demi’s dad and the tour’s managers questioned the group’s behavior. The source said, “When tour management found out about this, they talked to the people involved, including Demi. Demi reacted badly and perceived that someone on tour had told on her.”

Demi then confronted Alex because she thought she was to blame for their group getting into trouble. The snitch added, “There was a short, physical altercation”, but it was “one-sided.”

That’s when Demi decided to confront her demons. The family source said, “Afterwards, Demi felt awful about her behavior and realized she needed to take responsibility for it. Because of this, and because of the battles Demi has fought throughout her life, both she and her family realized she needed to take steps to get help immediately.”
