'Today' Tackles Demi Lovato Rehab News  (VIDEO)-photo

As the entertainment world continues to try to figure out exactly what was behind Demi Lovato's sudden tour cancellation and entry into a treatment facility, editors and experts are coming out to give their take on the situation.

While Demi is seeking treatment for "emotional and physical issues," the Today show explored her history -- which includes reports of cutting -- and spoke with psychiatrist Gail Saltz about how Demi could have wound up in this position, and where she can go from here.

    eu sou super fa da demi espero que ela melhore e que ela nao comece a agir como a miley mas sera que e culpa do joe o que ele fez simplismente ele trocou de namorada se foi culpa dele ou nao praque culparmos ele demi e uma jovem tao bonita nao devia dechar o joe magoar ela tem muitos garotos por ai que gostam dela eu li na internet que ela esta usando drogas se for verdade pare demi por favor quando eu tinha 9 anos eu pensei os jonas e a demi nunca vao fazer coisa errada como a maioria dos cantores e atores sera que eu vou continuar pensando assim. eu nunca vi um dos shows da demi e dos jonas porque era muito lonje e os meus pais nao compravam os engreços porque era lonje se eu podese encontrar com a demi e falar o que eu tinha que falar talveis ia dar serto ou nao?

    hey @Aaylo freak just cause joes dating another girl does not mean he has to date demi too! demi is a loser she thinks everything shud be hers when she has something she dosent use it when its not hers she wants it back!!! good ppl are spreading rumors bout her and justin biebergood 4 her she needs it !!!!!!!!!!!!! she dumped her bff selena so that she could hang with nick!!and now cause she hates joe she does not want to hang with any of the jbs!!!shes a userfreak and i never want to see her again idiot she is........ and is this an age to drink and go to rehab!!i mean i no u can drink at 18but GO 2 REHAB!!!never thought that so dont defend demiand 9if ashley and joe want to go out im proud and happy for them !!i wont kill them bec there no respect to demi!!!!oh and btw miss Aaylo joes not gonna read this so dont rite in first person creep! Woah. Hey there, are you 8? Get over yourself, learn a bit of grammar. This is the real world, it's hard to make a point when you have the grammatical structure of an 8 year old. I think you need to have a little more compassion on Demi. Some people can't handle the pressure of the spotlight, and she is one of them. I'm pretty sure you couldn't handle what she's going through either. This girl acts, sings, song writes, goes on tour, practices her lines for Sonny with a Chance, and on top of these things she gets dump and has to tour with her EX. Yikes. When this much pressure is pushed on emotional people, or unstable people (which I am one, so I'm not pointing any fingers. I can relate to Demi in ways.) it causes them to break. Cutting is a quick and easy escape from all of this. Many people don't understand why people cut, or they hate people that do (Because of their lack of knowledge on the subject.). People who cut need help from loved ones, not hated on by 8 year olds. I personaly think that rehab isn't going to help. If people had forced me into rehab for my cutting I wouldn't have stopped. I stopped because someone cared enough to help me, they actually cared for me and help me out of my hole. So lets have a little compassion. I'll be praying for Demi.

    [quote=Gina Wilhelm Actress]I really don't see how speculating on her mental state based on some anonymous "source" helps Demi get better. This sort of public scrutiny is the sort of thing that could put a kid on edge in the first place. Shame on the Today Show and Gail Saltz. N'aaawwww i miss Demi she doesn't do much on T.V anymore and her break up with joe isnt going to help her get better I LOVE YOU hope you get better soon! x

Joe can't put his dating life on hold because she had emotional trama! We have all been through hard break ups, lifes tough get over it and move on!

    iThink Joe Only Did This Bc He Wants Demi Back...Tbh, Demi's Prettier Than Ashley & iHope Demi Gets Better I'm Goinn' To Miss; Sonny With A Chance. iNever Liked Joe Jonas Since They Broke Up, iHope Demi Gets Well Soon So Sonny With A Chance Will Be Able To Come Back On Disney Channel, Demi Is Like A Hero To Me & iHate To See Her Go Through This, Joe Shouldv'e Never Put Demi Through All Of This After All This It Just Puts More Pain On Her. Demi Is, Funny, Talented, Pretty, Smart, & Alot Of Other Things. Demi Left The Tour Bc Of Joe & Tbh, Joe Shouldn't Have Brought His New "Girlfriend" After Demi & Him Broken' Up That Was Probally Away To Get Her To Leave The Tour & If It Was iHope He Is Happy. Demi Get Well Soon I'm Going To Miss You & The Show.

    i feel SOOO bad for Demi.. :( i never knew she used to cut herself and everything... i wonder if Selena knew? I NEVER saw this coming..sure she seemed a little sad but she's talkative and cracks jokes and stuff and EVERYBODY has a bit of sadness and she's under the camera alll the time so ...eh i remember watching an interview where she said without singing/music, as her outlet for stress, sadness, all her emotions, she would be ...blech. HOPE SHE GETS BETTER

    Wow. I feel really bad for Demi. Having your ex bring some s.l.u.t around you! She was brave to try to forget him and moveon, but I would've beat the h.e.l.l out of joe and ashley. Ashley should have known what she was getting her ass into. Joe can go suck a c.o.c..k! He has no feelings and doesn't give crap about anyone, but himself. No one should have to deal with what she has to deal with. Joe, I used to love you from my soul. I thought you were a good guy, but you go do this to an 18 year old? Grow the f*ck up and stop playing with these little girls hearts. Demi loved you and you break her heart cuz you wanted to be just friends. YOU BASTARD JUST F*CKED UP SOMETHING PERFECT AND GREAT! I HOPE YOU FEEL GUILTY!
