Alex Welch – the dancer Demi Lovato punched

After surprising her fans with her decision to seek help for serious “issues”, new details have appeared in the media about the possible reasons that led the 18-year-old to react in that manner.

Welch is a backup dancer on the Jonas Brothers Live in Concert Tour. She also appeared on season 3 of “America’s Best Dance Crew” as a member of Beat Freaks team, which got the runner-up title.

The altercation broke out after Demi found out that Welch had told on her partying during a night off from performing.

It seems that Welch is now considering legal action as she has been talking to lawyers.

A source close to the star said Demi “felt awful” about her behavior. “Because of this, and because of the battles Demi has fought throughout her life, both she and her family realized she needed to take steps to get help immediately.”
