The Girl

11/4/2010 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Demi Lovato's decision to seek treatment came after she punched a dancer who appeared on "America's Best Dance Crew" ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ ... Alex Welch was on the receiving end of Demi's blow.  Welch is a backup dancer on the Jonas Brothers Live in Concert Tour.  She was also a member of Beat Freaks, which got the runner-up title on season 3 of "America's Best Dance Crew."

We're told Welch -- who had a pretty nasty shiner from the incident -- has been talking to lawyers and is considering legal action.

Sources close to Demi say she feels "awful" about her behavior and took personal responsibility for it by leaving the tour and seeking help.

we dont know what really happened cause demi's family said that she was going to a treatment center for eating disorder and cutting not for punching some dancer in the face. And their is also no proof of her punching that girl either. and havent you heard you cant believe everything you read on the internant.

“Demi Lovato needs to grow the **** up. Shes really ruining her career. Shes cancelling her tour for ****ing "emotinonal help?" really? shes putting her job on hold ,making fans wait , because she wants "emotinal help?" and oh , the whole cause of this is Joe Jonas. First of all , never date Joe Jonas, hes a ****ing hag who needs to get the **** beat out of him, second, she had it coming. Sooner or later he was going to dump her...just like he did with Taylor ...OH expect this time... he asked his dad to break up with demi for him! Isn't he just the best ****ing mature boyfriend. These disney stars need to get their ****ing acts togther and take those sticks out their asses and grow the **** up and realize the world dosen't only revolve around them. “

Actually she is canceling the rest of her tour because she's being overworked like crazy and has a ton of emotional baggage on her. That tends to happen when a large company forces you to work you to the bone and then tour with your ex while he brings his current girlfriend with her. But yeah damn her for taking a moment for herself when she's not well enough to perform? Doesn't she know that she's supposed to be a machine and not...human? Good lord you sound like a moron.

“i hope demi gets sue! she's a bitch now, just like miley and all those slutly girls. i can't believe she would do this. well it was kinda coming. but still. i hope demi and her ****ty show gets off the air and disney fires her! she's a bitch for punching such a pretty girl for her own actions. i would sue and win if i was this girl!”

You can't believe that an 18 year old girl with raging hormones would get into a fight with a girl who ratted her out? I guess you've never been to highschool before. Hate to break it to you but people her age, are not excempt from the worlds problems just because you are rich and famous. This really isn't a big deal. Hell the dancer doesn't even talk about it that much.

Also your HOPE won't come true seeing as how They canned the Jonas brother's show and kept HER show still on the air. It's almost as if she's more important to Disney than the Jonas brothers. Sorry but one fight doesn't make someone a bitch. Even the most level headed person will have bitchy moments. Also if Alex DID sue, she wouldn't win. One because Disney backs up their cash cows with a conglomerate of lawyers. And two it happened OVERSEAS you jack ass! Us courts has no jurisdiction overseas! Good god learn your law people!

Have you seen Alex Welch aka BGirl Shorty? Her face is really pretty, but maybe the photos of Alex’s face are not the prettiest taken of her, Demi Lovato starred with Welch in the catfight of the year and the pictures are everywhere you see, check them out here plus video and get the latest updates in Welch vs. Lovato’s catfight

Wait your defending this chick because she's pretty? And just because Miley's made a couple (bunch) of mistakes doesn't make either of them a slut. Besides, do you even have info on why Lovato punched her?
