Alex Welch: Demi Owes Me An Apology For Punching Me In The Face!

Mon, December 6, 2010 4:29pm EST by 3 Comments

The Demi scandal continues, whether you like it or not. This time, we’re getting the full story from the victim of the punch-and-run!

Alex Welch, the girl on the receiving end of Demi Lovato’s punch heard around the world, is finally shedding new light on exactly what went down on the airplane before the singer was sent off to a treatment facility.

“To this day, I haven’t gotten an apology. I’ve heard nothing,” Alex tells People. “That’s sad if you think that person is your friend.”

As previously reported, a few hours before the fight, Alex and the other dancers were threatened by Demi because someone had apparently tattled on the 18-year-old singer’s inappropriate behavior from the night before. Alex says in the interview that Demi “pulled the dancers in a room and threatened: ‘If I find out who told on me …’”

But the 21-year-old dancer claims she wasn’t worried because she hadn’t witnessed what had happened that got Demi into “trouble” in the first place, and she even insists she wasn’t the one who told the tour managers. “I didn’t say anything and didn’t think twice about it,” Alex tells the mag.

Once on the plane, all hell broke loose. “We were on the plane with the Jonases having this awesome time and I didn’t get a call or text from Demi or a ‘hey, you got a problem with me,’ nothing. And she walks up and punches me and literally walked away and got in her seat.”

So why is Alex speaking out now? She simply believes that “no one should walk up and do that and brush it over, it’s not right.”

Meanwhile, a source close to Demi insists that “Demi hasn’t been able to call Alex because she is sequestered in treatment, but multiple efforts have been made to reach out to her.” And while we haven’t heard from the Camp Rock 2 star about the altercation in her own words, her spokesperson Jesse Derris promises that “Demi feels awful about what happened. Right now, she is 100 percent committed to her treatment.”

However, that doesn’t seem to be enough for Alex, who has hired Beverly Hills attorney Donald Karpel. He tells People: “We have contacted the Lovato camp and we are waiting for a response. If we don’t hear back, we will pursue litigation.”

A spokesperson for Demi has confirmed that lawyers are now involved. “We are in the process of engaging with Alex’s lawyer and hope to resolve this as quickly as possible.”

For both Demi and Alex’s sake, we hope for that too.

You know, I noticed that the people who support Alex Welch tend to live in a world of PC ridden litigations. Where they feel that it’s ok to sue someone for a minor injury to same effect as suing someone for beating the crap out of them with a baseball bat. You guys say DEMI is the real bully and what not yet let me ask you something. How is someone a bully when their mindset isn’t even in the right place? You say it doesn’t matter but how is that possible when you can’t even think straight? The typical argument I hear these days when it comes to Demi Lovato is “Mental illness don’t real.”

Well then if you believe that Mental illness “don’t real” you have to believe that things like sickness and diabetes “don’t real” either. Because a healthy mindset needs to be supported with healthy emotional support. Just like a healthy body needs nutritious support to make it function. This is NOT an opinion. This is scientific fact. Not saying that what Demi did was right, but any decent human being won’t blame Lovato for acting mentally ill when she was suffering from a mental illness.

And speaking of Alex Welch, the little Ambulance chaser that could, Since you live in a world of pointless PC litigations and no room for logic, I’m just trying to understand your sue happy ways. This is the same type of mentality that would file a bogus malpractice suit lawsuit against a hard working doctor with just so he can get a few bucks. That’s ten times more deplorable than giving someone a black eye. That’s character assassination and that’s ten times more reprehensible than giving some one a facial boo boo that will heal in two weeks. But unfortunately Character assassination isn’t against the law. Which can do more damage than any sort of physical violence.

Sorry but no. The real bully isn’t the disney actress who is put under a microscope. It’s the red headed dancer who decided to make a mockery of this judicial system and turn little black eye into a ****ing media circus.

i don’t really see why lawyers need to get involved. i DO think that DEMI needs to apologize to her though. to punch a person in the face is just wrong, even if you are a celebrity.

i guess being punched by your employer deserves legal action… but, this woman talks about demi as her friend— it seems a little severe to sick lawyers on a friend after a fight. but, yah, they’re not really friends… alex is “the help” and as such should probably be compensated for getting punched by her boss… lol… so ridiculous!
