Demi Lovato checks into treatment center

Sonny With a Chance star Demi Lovato, 18, has dropped out of The Jonas Brothers/Demi Lovato Tour and checked into a treatment facility. Her rep confirms she is seeking help for “emotional and physical issues.” A friend told Us magazine: “She needed help before a smaller problem got worse. She is doing OK. She has been forced into showbiz from a young age and that puts tremendous pressure on someone… everyone is really happy she is getting help.” Although no details have been released, there is speculation that the pressure of performing on tour with her Camp Rock co-star Joe Jonas may have been too much. She agreed to be part of the tour when they were happily dating, then prior to the tour’s start date, he broke up with her. Performing and touring with a guy who just dumped you would be a lot of pressure for any girl. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    I hope she gets better and can pull through this.

    But the Jonah Brothers had purity rings… surely that means they’re decent people *cough cough *sarcasm.

    Shame on Joe. He couldn’t have waited until after? She seems like a really sweet girl, I love her show. I hope she’s okay.

    Good for Demi — she’s looking after herself. The entertainment business can eat people up, especially if they’re pushed too fast and too hard at too young an age. Take good care of yourself Demi — good for you !

    I heard on TV she was also battling an eating disorder. Probably because she’s not as skinny as Miley or Selena, but actually, I think she looks better than them, especially Selena whose figure still hasn’t matured.
