On Wednesday (November 17), reports surfaced that
However, a rep for the starlet denies that report in a statement to MTV News. "Recent reports stating that Demi Lovato will be out of treatment by Thanksgiving are false," the rep tells us. "While she would of course love to be home for the holidays, she remains committed first and foremost to her treatment."
The rep goes on to say that "Demi has made tremendous progress to date, but understands that she has more work to do. Unfortunately, the news outlet that reported this story originally failed to call us for comment or to fact check the story before it was printed."
Lovato quit her tour with the Jonas Brothers about two weeks ago to deal with "emotional and physical issues." Last week, Disney released a statement noting that they would revamp Lovato's series, "Sonny With a Chance," to reflect her absence, focusing the story line on the inner-workings of the sketch-comedy program Lovato's character, Sonny, appears on, "So Random!"
"This allows her the time she needs to get well, without distraction or pressure," a Disney Channel spokesperson said. "Again, we extend our ongoing support to Demi and her family as she works to overcome personal issues."
The show's new format will focus on a beefed-up version of "So Random!" packed with guest stars, performances and digital shorts. Shooting for the revamped show will kick off in January, as originally scheduled.
