Alex Welch told People about Demi Lovato punching her: ‘To this day, I haven’t gotten an apology. I’ve heard nothing. That’s sad if you think that person is your friend. Demi has not been able to call Alex because she is sequestered in treatment, but multiple efforts have been made to reach out to her.
Demi was upset because she had gotten in trouble. Demi pulled the dancers in a room and threatened: ‘If I find out who told on me..’ [Alex said she didn't tell on Demi] I felt, honestly, I didn’t say anything and didn’t think twice about it.’
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. No one should walk up and do that and brush it over, it’s not right.’
Demi’s rep: ‘Demi feels awful about what happened. Right now, she is 100% committed to her treatment.‘ Welch doesn’t have any permanent damage. She has hired attorney Donald Karpel, who told People:
‘We have contacted the Lovato camp and we are waiting for a response. If we don’t hear back, we will pursue litigation.’ Demi’s rep: ‘We are in the process of engaging with Alex’s lawyer and hope to resolve this as quickly as possible.’
How much money do YOU think Alex should get for the punch?
