Demi Lovato's Attack Victim

The Bruising Photos

12/4/2010 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Demi Lovato left one hell of a mark when she punched a female backup dancer in the face on a private jet back in October ... and TMZ has obtained photos of the eye-swelling damage.

These photos were taken days after Demi socked Alex Welch in the face -- leaving visible bruises on her left eye and cheek.

Sources close to Welch tell us ... the dancer was simply minding her own business on a private jet leaving Bogota, Colombia ... when Demi "walked up to Alex and with a closed fist, struck her on the left side of her face."

We're told Alex was knocked clean out of her seat -- and had to receive emergency medical attention.

Lovato was immediately removed from the plane and eventually returned home -- and then checked herself into a treatment center shortly after.

Alex -- who completed the remaining dates on the Jonas Brothers tour -- has now lawyered up with high powered Beverly Hills attorney Donald Karpel and we're told she's "considering her legal options."

Not that she deserved to be punched, but I seriously doubt that she was just sitting there minding her own business and Demi just randomly came up and punched her, completely unprovoked.

Oh my god it's so horrible! It's the worst thing I've ever seen! Maybe she needs a trip to the waaaambulance!. Oh please. Emergency medical attention? For this? These days a baby gash is considered an "Emergency medical attention". give me a break. This lady had her 15 minutes of fame. This is nothing we haven't seen before in other pictures.

Exactly. No offense but her legal options aren't gonna get her much. Just cut her a check and be done with it. Thats what I would do.

Yeah bull ****. That's like asking for a ambulance when you scrapped a knee. Bull crap.

Man that is just wrong, I feel bad for this girl but she will now be cashing in. Its like the lottery stopped by her seat and punched her in the face. Thats at least 200,000 grand right there.

so she is lawyering up... not that punching someone is ok but ppl don't just punch others for no reason, besides she and her friend were tweeting how much fun they're having the next day so I don't think she's "traumatized" or anything in that sort. And with Demi having a breakdown and now in a TC I doubt Shorty would win this case. she's getting attention and who doesn't like that in hollywood?
They were once friends, that should count for something...

Demi Lovato has a better right hook than Mel Gibson.

I dunno - it's such a weird thing to do, it could have been completely out of the blue. Something might just have happened inside Demi, might not have had anything to do with the target (or could have had something to do with an event long before). There should be plenty of witnesses.
