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.

hello guys ... am a big fan of Demi, and I confess that I am very sad about this and I prayed a lot for this bad phase passes soon! Demi you are much more than you think, has great strength and faith ... you're a star and stars ever to shine ..... Tatielle fondly ......


Demi is my idol, but if you guys are gonna judge me over that then leave me alone. I have been bullied by people saying my teeth are ugly and I'm ugly, but if I look in the mirror, I see someone who is beautiful. Just like Demi is. So, she might be streessed out a lot. Just give her a break, and stop bein rude to someone that cares so mucha bout themselves and how they are feeling they are going to seek treatment. Okay!! I love you Demi! (no homo) :)


love demi, but honestly shes a celeb how hard can life really be? the grass is always greener..or so it seems. look demi i love you, and figure out ur life :) but im sure people out there have it way harder.


Demi i love u so much ur the best and hope u get better i will always be ur number 1 fan and like all ur real fans we all love u god bless u and get better so we can C ur smile Always a true fan


I hope Demi gets better soon i love her in sonny with a chance and in camp rock 1 and 2 also in the princess protection program it has so funny


I truly feel for Demi and think it's great she is taking responsibility for her own actions. I was never a big fan of hers, but she seems to be a good person. And to the people who think she was the bullier, I totally disagree. Just because she is a celebrity doesn't mean she's lying. I know for a fact that she did not always have the figure and good looks she has today. I think she is being honest about being bullied. If she was never bullied or made fun of whatsoever, I do not think her issues would be this serious. Anyways, best of luck to Demi!


And hows professionalism fits with that act? She don't use drugs as it was rumored but rather a fight with a "dancer"? Is Greene a dancer?


feel better demi dont do drugs next


Another case of the 'Hollywoods' taking over the young lives of these young actresses! Sad. I hope she gets the help she needs. Such a waste of such a lovely young gal's life. She's too beautiful to be chewed up and spitten out by the Hollywood lifestyle.
