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 wonder if John Mayer is part of the reason?!

Demi dated him and he dumped her out of the blue too.
I read that she was "devastated" by it.
Imagine that! Devastated over John Mayer?!

I find it hard to believe that an 18 year old is seeking help on their own...it's possible, just not likely.

Even though I made the John Mayer comment, I do hope Demi gets the help she needs and gets better.

Why didn't I get that psychology degree?? Therapists make a killing these days!!

All these wild speculations are the fault of Demi's publicist. Her PR people should have clearly stated what she was being hospitalized for. Making a vague "health issues" statement just opens the door for people's imaginations to run wild. Unless the truth is just too shocking to admit.

I believe a whole bunch of blind items just got answered definitively.

Also, you don't get coke bloat from 'emotional and physical issues.' (TMZ photo selection ftw as usual.)

I have first hand knowledge of her behavior. At a meet and greet in Michigan, she treated my daughter so poorly because my little girl asked her why she wasn't smiling and if she was ok. This b*tch tore into my daughter verbally like you wouldn't believe! She told my daughter "why the hell don't you think I'm ok? Of course I'm ok!! " She can go suck one. Spoiled little no name celebrity.
