The REAL Story Behind Demi Lovato Leaving 'Sonny With A Chance!' Exclusive!

Tue, April 19, 2011 2:17pm EDT by 21 Comments

Demi Lovato isn’t coming back to ‘Sonny with a Chance’ on Disney Channel, but an insider tells us Disney isn’t mad about her decision and is stoked to continue working with her on her music!

We were bummed to hear Demi Lovato is officially done with her hit Disney Channel show, Sonny with a Chance. However, an insider told us the details of what really went down between Disney and the 18-year-old triple threat — and we support her decision to focus solely on music!

“Demi was indicating that this would be her eventual decision (to not overload her schedule with both music and the series) soon after returning home but wasn’t ready to talk about it publicly until now,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com. “She is working hard on her health — it is truly admirable. Disney cares first and foremost about her health and happiness.”

So there’s no bad blood between Demi and the company that put her on the map?

“Not at all,” our source says. “She built a huge fan base at Disney Channel and through her music — they’re remarkaly supportive of her.”

A rep for Disney reiterated the company’s support, telling us, “There are no plans at this time [for her to return to TV], but she remains with Disney’s Hollywood Records for the music side of her career.”

Although we’re disappointed Demi won’t be making us laugh on SWAC, we can’t wait for the 18-year-old triple threat to produce more music! Plus, we can always watch re-runs…

Do you support Demi’s decision to leave her show? Are you excited to hear her new music? Sound off below!

I feel that Demi shouldn’t go back if she doesn’t feel comfortable infront of the camera. Everyone else should feel the same way too. I ❤ you
Demi! Stay Strong and keep on with your music! God bless you Demi and keep you safe now and forever! ❤😃

It’s not the same with out her. The show so random sucks its not even funny, and the sketches are annoying. Sonny with a chance was a hundred times better and funnier!!!!

An insider. Why do you keep coming to this site when you never have anything good to say? Get a life ‘jason’.
