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."

Wow this chick is a baby I highly doubt she was minding her own business sitting there like a little angel then Demi comes up randomly and punch her. I also think they really over reacted with the stupid emergency medical care she probably woke up by the time they got there so it was a waste. Like honestly that isn't at all that bad of a black eye, it could have been worse. Demi took matters in her own hands and dealt with the fact that she had problems while this chick is crying, getting a lawyer and complaining about not getting a apology call from her.

You know this hooker was doing the Jonas Bro Demi was dating while they were in a relationship. She deserved the punch for knowingly being the other and I don't blame Demi.

She doesn't need fame!!! She already famous. That B-Girl Shorty from the group ''Beat Freaks''. They each have toured separately with famous celebs like Britney, Pink, Jo bros...She makes her own money. Now Demi was wrong for stooping down to violence but we don't know what was said or done before the ''knock-out''.
