Someone get Demi Lovato to a phone already! Apparently friend/dancer Alex Welch might scrap her threats to sue Demi if she could just get an apology for when Lovato “walked up and punched” her on a plane without warning. “To this day, I haven’t gotten an apology. I’ve heard nothing,” Welch told People. “That’s sad if you think that person is your friend.” To be fair, Welch was apparently “having this awesome time” with Demi’s ex-Joe Jonas and his bros, while the out-of-her-mind Disney star was under the impression her friend told her managers she was out of her mind. Welch is probably lucky Lovato couldn’t get any sharp objects on the plane.
Demi’s people say they’ve tried to reach out to Welch (“Demi feels awful about what happened”), but have been unsuccessful. Meanwhile, lawyers on both sides are negotiating…something, with Welch’s lawyer threatening to “pursue litigation” if they don’t reach an agreement. Considering how little cash you’d probably get for a bruise and a black eye (and as Demi’s dad noted, Disney has good lawyers), we wouldn’t be surprised if Welch was offering to throw her silence in for a bigger payoff.
