Why is Demi Lovato going to rehab?

Demi Lovato rehab treatment is burning up headlines – but what’s wrong with Demi that the needs rehab treatment? Is being a Disney star too much pressure and stress?

First up, Demi Lovato’s rehab stint is not drug related, however, her rep clarified that the treatment is for “emotional and physical issues.”

Demi Lovato’s rehab treatment means she canceled her tour with the Jonas Brothers – but at least she’s making herself a priority and getting help.

Demi’s rep released the following statement:

“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.

Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help.  She is doing just that.

She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future.”

Demi Lovato’s rehab treatment is so unexpected, but I guess she did a good job of keeping her sunny disposition front and center all the
time.

Lovato is just 18, but she’s been a working actress since a very young age, getting her start on Barney. With the success of Disney Channel’s Camp Rock, Demi’s star was on the rise – she made an album, went on tour, landed her own Disney series, dated and broke up with Joe Jonas, made the Camp Rock sequel and released her second album.

Certainly, that level of fame has to take its toll. What is Demi Lovato’s parents’ role in all of this? You have to wonder if Lovato’s parents pushed Demi through the fame machine to lead to this.

Is Demi Lovato’s rehab another cautionary tale to let kids be kids and not push them into the spotlight?

While the specific details of Demi Lovato’s rehab are not known, People.com reports that a source close to her family says “She was bullied in school. She fought through eating disorders and has struggled with cutting. … Demi is taking control by getting help.”

What do you think of Demi Lovato going to rehab? Do you think all of the fame has pushed her to this?
