Demi Lovato Checks Into Rehab Center

Demi Lovato, the star of the Disney Channel's 'Sonny With a Chance' and 'Camp Rock' movies, left the concert tour she was on with the Jonas Brothers to enter a rehab center to get help for "emotional and physical issues," TMZ reports. Lovato entered the professional treatment center this past weekend.

TMZ.com reports the 18-year-old star is not seeking treatment for drug use.

Her rep released a statement saying, "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," the statement reads. "[Demi] regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future."

A source close to Lovato said there was a physical altercation between the singer and a female member of her tour, which ultimately was the "catalyst" in her decision to enter treatment.

Another source close to Lovato's family told People, "She was bullied in school. She fought through eating disorders and has struggled with cutting. ... Demi is taking control by getting help."

Earlier this year, Lovato dated Joe Jonas for several months before the two called in quits in May.

According to the Wall Street Journal, fans of the Disney Channel star became concerned last week when Lovato, a heavy Twitter user, deleted her account.
