Demi Lovato Leaves TV, Focuses on Music

Demi Lovato will not be returning to her Disney Channel series, Sonny with a Chance, JustJared.com can confirm.

“It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music,” the 18-year-old starlet tells People. “It’s kind of sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended but there couldn’t be a better time for me to move on… I don’t think going back to Sonny would be healthy for my recovery. Being in front of a camera would make me nervous.”

Disney Channel is supportive of Demi‘s decision.

“We respect Demi‘s decision to focus fulltime on her music and not immediately return to her acting career,” said a rep for Disney Channel. “She is a talented young woman and our hearts are with her as she continues to take action to improve her health and bounce back from adversity.”

Last October, Demi kicked off a three-month program at a treatment facility for “emotional and physical issues.”
