DEMI LOVATO has opened up about her 2010 mid-air meltdown that led to her lengthy rehab stint in a new documentary.
The pop star was kicked off the Jonas Brothers tour in South America after she punched back-up dancer Alex Welch in the face.
Lovato, who is now over five years clean after tackling her self-harming issues and bipolar and eating disorders in rehab, has recounted her life low for upcoming documentary Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, which debuts online next week (17Oct17).
And in a trailer for the special, which aired on Tuesday (10Oct17), Demi opens up about the drama, stating, “I was not easy to work with… I went on, like, a bender for two months, where I was using (drugs) daily.”
Demi lashed out at Welch after learning the dancer had told tour managers about the pop star’s wild antics on a night out. Demi confronted her on a flight to Peru and the argument turned physical.
“I just felt like she betrayed me,” Demi told America’s Elle magazine in 2011. “That’s the bottom line. When you punch someone on a plane, enough is enough.”
