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.


@ Tarayn, she didn't steal taylor swift's boyfriend. if you're talking about joe jonas, were over long before demi went out with him, and demi knew him 1st, they were best friends, and if you're talking about taylor lautner, taylor swift cheated on him and they broke up, she even wrote a song about it


well if this so called "close friend" is real, then i hope demi doesn't talk to that person anymore if they're just using her to talk to the media and feel important, what kind of friend is just gonna go around saying that, when she obviously didn't want people to know? anyways, i hope what her supposed "close friend" said isn't true, and i hope she gets better


feel better Demi


to Randy Jacksons butt: don't tell bullied kids to fight back cuz they'll bring a freakin gun to school, if you are bullied either ignore them or tell an adult if It gets to bad but I say don't listen to them cuz they don't know u and have no right to make fun or call u names or spread rumors!!!! and if Demi lovato needs help then good for her for admitting it... many stars don't seem to do that. I wish her the best!!!


@Singstar: I figured she was probably a bully in school. So typical. And she stole Taylor Swift's bf. She is the kind of person who was insecure and probably hurt others to feel better about herself. But I'm glad she's taking the time to figure things out and hopefully she can grow as a person, gain confidence, and apologize to people she's hurt in the past.


@Ashley. I AGREE. I was bullied and no one paid attention to me in Middle or High School. I was a nerd. Now I get hit on all the time, even by kids from my graduating class who don't remember me. I'm glad she's getting help, but still. I know way more people that have had way worse lives. I do agree it's hard being depressed because people make fun of you, but if she hasn't figured out she's famous and hot by now, people are either still mean to her because she's a bitch or she's taking her life for granite and DOES need this help!


Poor Demi. She seems like such a nice, confident girl. I hope things get better and she gets the support she needs. I hope she doesn't do anything dangerous- I'd hate to see something bad happen.


Cutting?! What?! I hope she doesn't go to drugs next.


I am in middle school and I get bullied and it hurts, I can't even talk to my parents about it and I understand her problem! I have done a lot of thing that bullied kids do, like cut, stop eating, stop talking to friends but I've done other stuff like attept of suicide and i have gone through depression four times! I wish others would stop being b***hes. The thing with famous people is they blow things out of porpotion and tik everyone off. Just like Kristen Stewart. She is respected by lots of people but she blows things out of porpotion. She said that she was bullied and she had a stalker. Yawn :o


OMG ther all :@**>,~# so i dnt really care!
