Demi Lovato Speaks Out In Elle‘s September Issue

How gorgeous does Demi Lovato look in Elle‘s September issue? With all the recent drama in her life and her phoenix-like return, we were hoping we weren’t going to get a candy-coated interview alongside the photo shoot. Luckily, she didn’t dissapoint. Nothing seems off topic in this piece especially when she talks about the start of her downfall. She recounts how she, “…was completely out of line all summer. Just the worst attitude — totally ungrateful”, leading up to her infamous fight with backup dancer Alex Welch. Again, she doesn’t (pardon the pun), hold her punches about it saying, “I just felt like she’d betrayed me. That’s the bottom line.”

But there’s also conciliatory Demi here. Someone who seems genuinely apologetic for her mistakes. About the whole mess that followed after the fight, she reveals, “When you punch someone on a plane, enough is enough. Right after, I texted my mom and just said, ‘I’m sorry’.” But lest you think her breakdown was all because of a broken relationship with one Joe Jonas, she reckons you’re wrong. Demi flat-out says, “I wouldn’t credit my meltdown to a guy. There was so much other stuff in my life.” Good show, right?  We’re totally rooting for her! We also love the fact that she still seems feisty and hasn’t lost her edge even though she’s suitably apologetic.

Demi Lovato Is Going To Be Sued By Her Assaulted Back-Up Dancer

Demi Lovato‘s dad should’ve held off on the threats towards Alex Welch. Post the whole Demi-punching-Alex extravaganza, Demi’s father , Patrick Lovato, warned Welch, “Demi has really good lawyers and so does Disney. This girl shouldn’t sue. She won’t win.” All this talk of her backing down has pretty much fallen on deaf ears, because it turns out Welch is going to sue Demi next week.

She’s apparently going for some sort of sympathy vote, as she’s also heading to a plastic surgeon to check out the injuries from Demi’s punching. Her lawyer, Donald Karpel, explains, “We will be filing a lawsuit next week. We will be seeking punitive damages for assault, battery and for mental stress. After the attack, Alex had to get emergency treatment. She is now consulting a Beverly Hills ears, nose and throat plastic surgeon.”

We have a feeling it’s going to get ugly. Disney and Demi may have really good lawyers, but does the rehabbed star really want to have her name dragged through the mud? Especially with those pesky coke rumors floating about? Lots of nasty details always surface in court, and does Demi really need that right now?
