Demi Lovato Rep Shoots Down Settlement Talk

by at . Comments

Talks of a settlement between Demi Lovato and Alex Welch may be premature.

While lawyers for both sides - the troubled singer and the backup dancer who was attacked by Lovato immediately before she checked herself into rehab - have acknowledged contact, Demi's rep says no money has exchanged hands.

Specifically, this source tells Celebuzz a Chicago Sun-Times story that the actress paid Welch six figures in a settlement is "completely fabricated."

Attorney Stuart Slotnick, meanwhile, doubts the marks on Welch's face are enough to help her win any court case.

"If people could sue one another for causing bruises, we would all be in a lot of trouble," he says. "[If there isn't] some serious injury, a lawsuit may not be appropriate."

Still, the mere notion of dragging this alleged assault out for months might be enough to warrant a settlement. Says a source close to Demi:

“The last thing [she] needs is for this to go to trial... There are too many embarrassing and damaging details that could come out.”

"youre making yourself look so stupid, you deserve it girl." You're right. Alex does deserve it. And now that she's hitting someone while they are down, she is getting called out on it.

lol they weren't even friends. demi wanted to be friends with her and tried so hard but alex was always unattached and distant. friends, huh? you must have a really loose definition of friends. im glad you did this. youre making yourself look so stupid, you deserve it girl.

I'm not even a fan of Demi but I LOVE her for this. They were all partying, they were all doing the same things. You know how many kids were on that camp rock tour? Of COURSE there's gonna be partying going on. If you were gonna snitch on Demi why don't you snitch on everyone else while you're at it then? That girl deserved it, she was the one running her mouth and saying things she had no business saying. If Demi can party hardy and still get up and do her job very well every morning then leave her be! This Alex girl is a smoker and she wants to snitch for chillin at a party? Girl, please. There's no way you actually cared about what went down at the party, you just want attention. Get over yourself. I'm not violent nor am I confrontational but if she did that to me I would've socked her one too. The only difference would've been that I would've done enough for it to be worth all the proceedings.

Funny how when Demi Lovato punches somebody, everyone thinks it's no big deal but when Miley Cyrus wears a provocative outfit everyone gets angry and screams slut. I guess people would rather see teens be violent then see teens wear dress sexy, even though violence is the big deal. I'd be pissed too if I was a back up dancer for some star and that star gave me a black eye without even apologizing. I would have kicked her ass. What if the girl had punched Demi back and it had turned into a violent brawl?

that alexis or watever chick is ridiculous and mustve suffered being dropped as a kid, cuz u cant really be sued for hitting another person unless blood is involved. Demi has too many issues and 'lex isnt making her life any easier. Shes just being a bully cuz she knows times are tough now for demi. Inconsiderate.
