Demi Lovato's Attack Victim — Singer Left Her Bruised & Battered. Photos.

Posted Sat, December 4, 2010 11:55am EDT

Alex Welch, the backup dancer attacked by Demi, is considering her legal options over the incident that was so severe she had to seek emergency medical treatment!

The backup dancer Demi Lovato infamously attacked is possibly coming forward to pursue her legal options now that she has completed her tour with the Jonas Brothers — and supplying some frightening photos of how bruised the incident left her. A source close to Alex Welch told TMZ that the dancer was keeping to herself when Demi, “walked up to [her] and with a closed fist, struck her on the left side of her face.” Ouch.

Alex is now meeting with a Los Angeles lawyer to perhaps pursue a case against Demi. After the fight, which knocked Alex out of her seat on the plane, Demi entered a treatment facility to deal with personal issues.

Alex herself has remained quiet on the subject of the Oct. 31 fight, saying only, “Not ging to answer any questions. Thank you,” on her Facebook account Nov. 4.

See the bruised photos of Demi’s victim here.

O yeah and she shouldn’t have smaked Ashley in the face rather than poor Alex. It would have made a better story.

No. She shouldn’t have taken it out on this dancer. It was wrong of her and she should take responsibility for this minor offense. But Alex welch is hardly battered. Bruise maybe but nothing that serious.

Even though I feel Demi was wrong, i hate it when people try to make their injuries seem worse than they actually are.

I feel so sorry for Demi. She’s going through alot and she took her anger out on someone else that haven’t even did anything to her and that’s not right at all. At least Demi is getting the help that she needs. I also think Demi should apologize to Alex.

I feel bad for Alex Welch, I mean she doesn’t deserve what Demi did. Even though I love Demi very much, and she’s going through alot but she didn’t have the right to punch anyone. I know she’s been stressed about the whole ” Ashley greene drama” but It doesn’t mean she should take it out on someone else.

Alright, I come from the imdb boards and I heard about this over here and I felt that I should say a few things. First off. No. I don’t think Alex deserved to get hit. I think it was wrong of Demi to do so and I think she knew it to. Hence why she is getting help right now. To prevent anything like this from happening again. I commend her for that. She’s getting help and taking steps to preventing this. And that is a good thing.

Having said that, I think she should take responsibility and make it up to this girl somehow. Because part of taking responsibility is also being responsible for your actions. And I can see why some people would say it’s just a black eye. Cause, yeah it kinda is and yeah it’s two people just getting into a fight. But the fact is, Demi in her ill state of mind (and I say ill state of mind because I truly do believe that her state of mind was off) did something she should not have done. I can’t condone this. I really can’t. As much as I support Demi and as much as I always will, I can’t condone a violent act towards someone else.

Now that’s not to say that I think she should go to jail. No, of course not. I don’t think anyone who didn’t have a violent history that had a public melt down should go to jail, especially if their mind wasn’t in the right state. I mean she’s not a flight risk or anything like that. She was a kid that made a mistake. She’s an 18 year old girl with raging hormones that did something irrational. Who didn’t do something like that? Maybe you guys never hit anyone but you still had that moment of irrationality. And sometimes what you say or DO is worse than hitting someone. You can hurt people worse with other means, rather than using your fists.

Now I do think she should take responsibility for it though. But I don’t think she should take the same punishment like a hardened criminal should. I see no reason why she should be given criminal charges for someone just made a mistake. She isn’t a criminal and this is her first offense, if indeed she was going to press criminal charges, I think that would be taken into account as well as the fact that she’s trying to better herself. And any rational person would take that into account as well instead of treating her like she was a murderer. There has to be some sort of compassion and sympathy for both parties. Otherwise were just beasts. And yes treating someone who you don’t know or even have their side of the story is pretty deplorable in anything else. Demi is still entitled to rights and certain RIGHTS are that her previous clean record is and SHOULD be taken into consideration. Just like her other philanthropy ideas. And again the fact that she is trying to better herself should be taken into consideration as well.

Not to mention her state of mind. You guys won’t agree with this. But It does play a part in this. There is no time frame on how long personal issues from your past and inner demons should last inside of you. They could last for years if you don’t nip it in the bud. Someone here said that her behavior is an indication of “There’s something very wrong” and she’s right. There is something very wrong here. She’s got some issues that are scaring the crap out of her and she needs help. She really does.

Also this doesn’t just apply to her but other people as well. It’s not JUST celebrities who get a lienient sentence. Other people get that as well if they don’t have a prior record and have been clean for the most part. People should really look into old cases.

Having said all that, I don’t think criminal charges are going to be pressed. Because if they were, the dancer would have filed a police report the day it happened. And an arrest warrant would’ve been issued. It doesn’t seem like that’s the case seeing as how Demi was allowed to go back home to get the help she needs. So it’s safe to assume that the Dancer doesn’t want to press criminal charges. Not to mention she wouldn’t get an american lawyer but a lawyer that was liscenced with their respective bar at Bogata Colombia. Where this took place. But that’s messy and it takes up a lot of time and money. Which is pretty daunting on both ends. And in regards to that aircraft law that someone mentioned above, that is still a federal US law that is applied to. It still does not apply to “crimes” that happened overseas. Also we don’t know if the aircraft was a US sanctioned one. It was a private one. That’s all we know.

So yeah, Criminal charges, probably not gonna happen. A Civil lawsuit on the other hand is not out of the question. I do think a civil lawsuit however wouldn’t be THAT unjustified seeing as how Demi was in the wrong and like I said, she should make it up to this girl and apologize. Not to mention Alex is entitled to something. I don’t think she should get or IS going to get two hundred thousand dollars. But I do believe that she should get something for her troubles of being hit and that should be within reason. I think she should also get a written apology. I do believe she is entitled to some restitution. Not Demi’s entire life savings. That’s just as unfair as anything else.

Having said all that. I will end with this. We all make mistakes. And those mistakes will someone cause us to do irrational things. And even though she shouldn’t have hit someone, I don’t condone it. I don’t think this should be held over her neck like a guillotine blade for her entire life or for her entire career. There’s not one of us out there who can judge her without knowing her and there’s not one of us out there who can say “I never had a moment of irrationality where I said something or did something, I should not have done.” Again we all make mistakes but you can’t possibly expect her to life her life with this hanging over her head for all eternity. She feels bad enough about it, I don’t think she should be constantly reminded of what happened and what not. Or the turmoil she went through that caused all of her buttons to be pushed. Which lead to an explosion.

You guys wanna talk about being fair, that’s not very fair at all now is it? So yeah, even though I DO support her in getting healthy, getting back to work and entertaining her fans as well as getting her life back on track, I don’t support her actions and I think she should make it up to Alex in one way or another. With in reason of course. I don’t think anyone with a rational mind can find fault in that.

That doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve a second chance or a chance at a fulfilling life and doing what she likes to do. Which is entertain. Nor do I think her career SHOULD suffer either. I do believe in second chances and I think she should get one. Sure, all of us do stupid things now and then. All of us hurt others at one time as well. The thing is, mistakes happen. that is just part of life, and part of being human. I think it is all in how you process your “mistake”. If you let it ride you and run your life, you learn nothing. what makes each and everyone of us unique and special is how we come out of and what we learn from our “mistakes”. This is all part of life, and everyone goes through it.

Bruised and battered? Oh please. This was a black eye.

“DEMI HAD HER CHANCE AT STARDOM/BLEW IT! SHE’S ALL WASHED UP”

Yeah tell that to Chris three grammy nominations Brown.

“Have you ever been bullied? Because if you have you will know that sometimes things happen when you ARE minding your own business. And sometimes bullies punch you for no reason at all!!!”

Yes Bullies DO punch people for no reason at all. Hence Demi is not a bully. In this case that is. Bullying is more or less HABITUALLY causing someone harm. This happened because of provocation.

“The facts remain that Alex Welch “provoked” Demi Lovato by telling Demi’s Management about Demi’s drug use. She did this to try to get Demi the help she needed. Demi acted out, committed a federal crime assault/violence on an aircraft and is in rehab. Someone ****d up big time and it wasnt alex.”

First off, the drug use rumor is just a rumor. She provoked her on something but it sure as well wasn’t for getting the help she needed. Not if she was PART of said party last night.

Second you guys need to know your law. As much as you guys WANT her to be charged with a federal crime assault/violence on an aircraft, she can’t be. Because this didn’t happen ON Us Soil. It happened over in a foreign country where the US HAS no jurisdiction. All the crimes and laws you are stating are LAWS stated FOR the US and NOT for overseas action.

And assault/violence on an aircraft is for a US JURISDICTION aircraft. And you can’t assume that this private Jet was a us jurisdiction aircraft. Believe it or not, other countries have their private jet companies as well.

“Guess she can retire for life on this lawsuit. Too bad Demi, you’ll be working for her soon.”

No she won’t. A judge sees a few things before they award in these types of claims court. What provoked the incident. What was the lasting damage FOR said incident, what was the traumatic effect for said incident and so forth. The lasting damage was next to nil and the traumatic effect was also pretty minimal. So no, she won’t be retiring anytime soon.

In these types of civil law suits (and thats all it can be. A Civil lawsuit) you get what you deserve. Not what you want. For a black eye and a bruised cheek, you might your medical bills to be paid and some restitution and maybe her legal bills. But other than that, no. Unless this was a lasting damage or something that will effect Alex’s work in the future, this is more or less minimal.

They must have beenon a private plane, because if it was commercial, Lovato would have been arrested immediately upon landing. I want to know why it took over a month to decide if she should do something about it? Checking into Lovato’s net worth perhaps? If someone did me like that I would be filing a police report in the hospital or immediately upon my release. But then, I am more interested in justice than suing people.

It’s a good question to ask why it took a month. She was out of counry, on the job for most of that time. Alex has a year to start any legal action. She had to find an attorney and they have to figure out jurisdicional issues, etc.

Another very good question to ask is why Disney did nothing about this… it is work place violence. Alex was on the job, traveling for the job, when her boss.. Demi Lovato slugged her.

Because she is not interested in doing what is right. She is interested in getting money. Fact is this. She see’s Lovato as having money so she is thinking of suing her. Also this is nothing new. It was reported in november that she was considering legal actions and talking to lawyers and nothing has happened. YOu’re regurgitating old news.

But if she does decide to sue a civil lawsuit. She wont get much. And she can forget about a criminal case. Demi won’t do one day in jail.
