One the same day Charlie Sheen checked into a rehab center, Demi Lovato checked out of one.

Lovato is already back in Los Angeles, following a two-month stay in an Illinois facility where she fought through what a rep originally described as "emotional and physical issues."

In fact, these photos were snapped of the star this afternoon in Santa Monica. Isn't it nice to see her smiling again?

Demi will continue to seek treatment in California, as insiders tell TMZ she hopes to return to a "regular routine" that involves a lot of time with her family.

We wish her all the best and truly hope Lovato's problems are all in the past.

Due to her stint in a treatment center, Demi Lovato could not attend this month's People's Choice Awards.

But that didn't stop fans from voting her their favorite guest star for her role on Grey's Anatomy; and anointing Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam as their favorite family TV movie.

In response, on her official Facebook page, the young singer has written:

"I wish to thank all the friends and fans who voted for me for the People's Choice Awards and the Hot Hits Hottest Teen Stars of 2010. I want to make sure my fans know how thankful I am for all their love, support and prayers during this difficult time. Thank you for standing beside me through it all."

There's no time table for Demi's return to public life, but we hope she takes as long as she needs to do away with her personal demons for good.

Demi Lovato spent Christmas with her family.

The troubled singer, who was stuck inside an Illinois treatment center for Thanksgiving, was granted a half-day reprieve from the facility on Saturday. Sources say she saw a movie with her mother, step-father and two sisters.

"She is doing good and is in good spirits," an insider says of Demi's overall progress. "She is committed to the program... She will stay as long as the doctor's tell her she needs to stay."

Last week, Lovato settled with Alex Welch, the back-up dancer she punched prior to admitting she needed help.

After a bit of back-and-forth in the press between attorneys, Demi Lovato has settled with Alex Welch.

Terms of the financial arrangement were not disclosed, but the rehabbing singer will pay the back-up dancer - who she slugged in the face prior to entering a treatment facility in Illinois - a certain amount in order to avoid a lawsuit.

Said Donald Karpel, Welch's lawyer, TMZ: "The parties are satisfied and the dispute has been resolved amicably and completely."

The incident with Welch was reportedly rock bottom for Demi. She sought treatment, remains in seclusion and will hopefully return to public life a stronger, happier individual.

Just days after a couple racy photos of Demi Lovato leaked onto the Internet, an even dirtier rumor has sprung up around the troubled singer: she's the star of a new sex tape.

But Demi's rep has quickly shot to the defense of his client, issuing the following response into what he deems a "disgusting" story planted by some media outlet.

Performing for Thousands

"Perpetrating these completely unfounded rumors from supposed sources while Demi is in treatment dealing with serious physical and emotional issues is disgusting.

"The sourcing on this report is so spotty that it is hard to fully respond... We would ask serious news outlets to strongly consider the source of this story before they regurgitate it."

THG is far from a serious news outlet, but we still felt a need to shoot down this rumor before it spread too rapidly. Have some morals, fellow bloggers!

This is not what Demi Lovato needs right now.

The 18-year old singer, who has been in a rehab facility battling numerous personal issues since early November, is at the center of a Twitter picture controversy.

A pair of racy photos have been leaked online, both of which depict Lovato playing around with friends and pulling down her black bra for the camera. Are they relatively harmless? Yes.

But like Miley Cyrus and her recent bong controversy, young celebrities simply have to learn to be more careful when placed in certain situations. It really isn't that difficult. Check out Demi's scandalous photos below.

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."

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.

Freedom for Demi

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:

Days after photos of the bruises she suffered at the hands of Demi Lovato surfaced, Alex Welch is speaking out about the early November incident between her and that famous singer.

While sitting on a plane with Demi, The Jonas Brothers and others related to that tour, the 21-year dancer says she was punched in the face by Lovato, who suspected Alex of ratting out her partying actions from the previous evening.

"She walks up and punches me and literally walked away and got in her seat," Welch tells People, adding that she didn't tattle on anyone. "No one should do that and brush it over, it's not right."

Lovato entered rehab immediately following this confrontation, but has not reached out to Welch about it.

"To this day, I haven't gotten an apology. I've heard nothing," the dancer says. "That's sad if you think that person is your friend."

With Demi Lovato working on her personal issues inside an Illinois rehab facility, Alex Welch is left to ponder a response to her unfortunate interaction with the famous singer.

Welch is the backup dancer who was attacked by Lovato shortly before Demi took this break from her career. Sources say Lovato was angry because she believed Alex had tattled about a party the night before.

As a result, she walked up to Welch on a private jet "and with a closed fist, struck her on the left side of her face," an insider tells TMZ. That site has also just published the following pics of Welch soon after this attack:

Lovato was removed from the plane and has been out of the public eye since.

Welch, meanwhile, has retained counsel and is considering a lawsuit. Click on either of the photos above and you can clearly see the reason why: Demi left her with visible bruises on the left eye/cheek.
