Demi Lovato to Seek Treatment for "Emotional and Physical Issues," Quits Tour

by at . Comments

Hurry up and get better, Demi Lovato.

The young singer has dropped out of her global tour and admitted that she's in need of treatment for what her rep describes as "emotional and physical issues."

"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.

@randyjacksonsbutt demi is amzing and if u dontn agree with the rest of us then shut up and keep comments to yourself. bullying comes if all diffrent ways. i was called names and it hurts. not physically but mentally. it can make you go crazy with all the drama. just because u cant feel her pain doesnt mean u cant be compassionate about what shes going through. so next time u have a negative thing to say keep it to yourself bcuz being an @sshole doesnt get you anywhere in life.
