Demi Lovato: Nearing Settlement with Alex Welch

by at . Comments

As expected, it looks like Demi Lovato and Alex Welch are close to reaching a settlement.

A day after the 21-year old back-up dancer told the world that Demi had yet to apologize for last month's punch to the face, the legal action has heated up between lawyers for both parties.

Soon after his client gave this interview, Don Karpel said he would file suit against the Sonny With a Chance actress "in the next seven to 10 days" for alleged assault and battery.

That got the attention of Lovato's team, spokesman Jesse Derris said:

"Demi's attorneys have had an initial discussion with Mr. Karpel. They are exploring the possibility of an amicable resolution of this matter. We do not plan on making further public comments during this process."

Without going into detail, Karpel echoed this sentiment, telling E! News: "I have engaged in discussions with Demi Lovato's attorney. I'm fairly confident we will be able to resolve these issues."

Expect an undisclosed amount to be exchanged between the two sides in the near future.
