Alex Welch is Said to be Considering Legal Action After Being Punched in the Face by Demi Lovato
Alex Welch is a back-up dancer for the Jonas Brothers tour and she appeared on America's Best Dance Crew, but she was also the target of Demi Lovato's fist in Peru last Saturday.
According to TMZ, Alex is said to have suffered a rather nasty bruise from the incident and is now considering legal action.
Sources close to Demi say she feels "awful" about her behavior and took personal responsibility for it by leaving the tour and seeking help.
Lovato checked herself into rehab on Monday night to work through some physical and emotional issues.
During the alleged scuffle she also apparently made some verbal threats against her ex Joe Jonas' current girlfriend, Twilight star Ashley Greene. Many say this was the catalyst for checking herself into rehab and she may be dealing with issues of an eating disorder and / or self-harming.
