Joe Jonas claimed it was mutual and Demi Lovato insisted he ended things — now we might be getting the REAL story behind the breakup that led Demi down her dark path!

It’s not fair to place blame for Demi’s troubles solely on Joe Jonas. Friends of the 18-year-old Disney star claim she’s been dealing with issues for years. However, a story from the new issue of People magazine has all the details behind Joe’s decision to leave Demi Lovato — and there were warning signs!

A source tells the magazine that while Joe, 21, was dating Demi, she “was a true teenager in love.” But despite her feelings for the middle Jo Bro, he had to end things because “Demi’s attitude and behavior were out of control.” The report continues on to say that she was “a mess” and “tortured.”

There are even new details on the airport fight that set Demi home from the tour. After her backup dancer Alex Welch tattled on Demi’s partying habits, a tour member says, “’Demi walked onto the plane, did not look at the girl, then suddenly punched her in the face and threatened her with a slew of expletives. Demi’s manager asked her, ‘Are you in control at all?’ She said, ‘Sorry, I just lost it.’”

It seems that Joe saw the troubling signs in Demi long before she broke down at the airport. The source also insists that everyone knew about her problems, including her battle with cutting: “‘It wasn’t a secret. She was getting help.”

The Camp Rock star is currently receiving therapy in a suburban treatment center. Get better soon, Demi!
