I honestly didn't want to see this happen. I don't sit around hoping that these teen stars end up in the hands of some professionals who can give them the parenting that they didn't receive at home, I just am pained with some of the young stars so clearly on a nasty spiral with future disaster, evident to everyone except for the teen themselves, people profiting off the knowledge that they're going to crash and burn for the benefit of tabloid sales. It's all more depressing than it ever should be.
Demi Lovato, the just recently turned 18-year old star of Disney ventures such as the CAMP ROCK series, has checked into rehab. Her representatives have stated that Demi "left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatment for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time. Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help."
Much like we learned after the fact with other stars going into rehab for variations on the "exhaustion" reasons, it tends to be a smokescreen for substance abuse issues or eating disorders with young women. Considering that Lovato has been railing recently for some kinder and gentler commentary on her appearance in the media, I fear that the girl has felt that strain to a excessively high degree.
