"Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help," the rep says. "She is doing just that. Demi and her family ask that the media please respect their privacy during this difficult time. She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future."

A friend close to the singer - who sang a duet with ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas just last week in Mexico City - told People her pal "was bullied in school. She fought through eating disorders and has struggled with cutting."

We commend Lovato for seeking help and encourage readers to send her your best wishes and prayers.
