Demi Lovato Settles with Dancer Alex Welch after FightMariaLianos
Demi Lovato and Alex Welch have settled their differences after Lovato allegedly gave the backup dancer a black eye, Welch’s attorney said Thursday.
The Disney star reportedly fought with Welch during the Jonas Brothers tour in October, leaving the dancer with a black eye.
Welch’s lawyer had threatened a lawsuit against the Lovato over the October 31st incident, saying that his client was left with a black eye, suffered emotionally after the altercation and consulted a plastic surgeon with regard to the physical injury she sustained.
Then, Lovato ended up quitting the Jonas tour and checked herself into rehab “for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time.”
But now, the issues between the two “been resolved amicably and completely,” attorney Donald Karpel told E! News.
TMZ first reported word of an alleged confidential financial settlement.
Lovato is on leave from her Disney show “Sonny With a Chance” and is still in a Chicago treatment facility.
But Lovato’s rep has not yet responded to a request for comment. A spokesman had previously confirmed that the two sides were working on settling the issue out of court.
