The location of Lovato's treatment center was not disclosed. The 18-year-old performer reportedly decided to seek treatment after getting into a fight with a dancer on her concert tour. Her rep said Tuesday that Lovato "has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help." A Disney spokesman said, "We support Demi's decision to put her health first and we send her our best wishes." Reports on Tuesday said Lovato has been fighting emotional demons for years. She has said she was bullied in middle school, and long has been tormented by body image issues and an urge to cut herself. A source told People magazine that Lovato, who generally comes across as vivacious and lively on-screen and in interviews, "doesn't have the same kind of love for life that she at one point had."
