Demi Lovato Quits Tour

Enters Treatment Center

11/2/2010 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Disney star Demi Lovato has bailed on an international concert tour with the Jonas Brothers -- and has checked into a treatment center to seek help for "emotional and physical issues" ... TMZ has confirmed through the singer's rep.

In a statement to TMZ, the 18-year-old singer's rep says, "Demi Lovato left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatment for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time."

We're told Demi is not seeking treatment for drug use.

The statement continues, "Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help.  She is doing just that."

The rep concludes, "[Demi] regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future."

Sources close to Lovato tell us the singer was in a physical altercation with a female member of her tour recently ... which was a "catalyst" in her decision to seek professional help.

I'm happy she's taking responcibility for her own actions! I DO NOT think she was EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER TIMES 1000000000000000000000 on drugs. She wouldn't do that to her fans, her career, her family all that she's worked for! She's not dumb! Go demi!!!! im with you 100 percent every step of the way just like i am with miley

I thought I saw some picture a while ago where she had cuts up and down her arm. It seems to be she has some stress and anxiety issues. Those can be tough to beat. Sometimes it takes intensive therapy in a controlled enviroment to get yourself in the right place. If shes on tour with someone whos causing her problems that definately not the right place for her. I'm glad she is getting help.

Doing the census of this country's citizens is difficult. However, getting a head count of the morons in the US is very easy. Just peruse the comments sections of TMZ.

Demi Lovato needs some help, recognizes that need, and is doing something about it. That's commendable. I hope the young woman does well and gets on with her life.

What's wrong with Disney!! They produce crazy people!

Britney Spears = disney kid singer/actor = crazy
Lindsay Lohan = disney kid singer/actor = crazy
Demi Lovato = disney kid singer/actor = on her way to being crazy

guess Christina Aguilera lucked out... Miley isn't too far off.
