Demi Lovato Quits Tour

Enters Treatment Center

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

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 18 years old but I'm so emotionally weak and shallow I'm going to publicly announce that I have a problem instead of dealing with it privately. Aren't I great?

I knew she had issues. So was it dope, or coke?

We all already knew she was suffering back when those self-harm photos surfaced. You cannot look at those pictures and say a ****in hair band made those marks. I doubt that she is in treatment for an eating disorder, it is most likely depression, stress, anxiety, etc. I for one am glad she has the courage to get some help for whatever is going on. When it's anything psychological people have a harder time seeking out help because of all the stigma.

The Disney/Nick stars are kids with very adult responsibilities, stress and pressures to perform. They make huge money and some are responsible for huge empires. Maybe she's overly scheduled, stressed and exhausted, which can definitely cause emotional and physical illness requiring rehab. It doesn't always have to be alcohol and/drugs.

Some of you people are sick. Not everyone's issues have to do with drugs. Some people have just have everyday problems. Especially young people in show business. Maybe she is getting help before it becomes a REAL ISSUE.

I'm thinking it is an eating disorder...just from the way it was worded. Poor girl, hope she will be ok. Stardom is not a fit life for a young girl like that...

If anyone can remember, a couple of years back everyone suspected that she had issues with self mutalation or cutting. I think that is what it spurs from.

"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."

She's only 18 what emotional and physical issues has she had for some time that are so deep she can't do her job? Did she get sexually abused or physically abused as a small child or what?

This is called "learning from other's mistakes". Good job, Demi. Get well soon.

A Disney nutcase. That's what you get when you SELL OUT, like those phony, scuzzy Jonas boys. Hope you're prepared for the mindf[u]ck, losers... 'cause it's a-happening!

In other words she was already mentally ill before she got famous and is now faving a hard time dealing with fame so she's finally decided to seek help.

This just in folks, an interview with Miss Lovatos publisist speaks out saying "Were not sure how this happened but somehow ... she got famous and had a nervious breakdown because she thought some one would find about her lip syncing. Seriously if she wasnt banging that Joanas douche we would all be screwed!" More to come when any one starts careing
