Did Demi Lovato alleged punch victim settle for too little?

HollywoodNews.com: Apparently Alex Welch, who was allegedly punched by Demi Lovato right before she went to rehab, didn’t get much money out of the rumored settlement.

It is being reported that Welch got far less than $100,000 out of the settlement and she will be seeing even less than that, states RadarOnline.com. Welch will reportedly be donating a good chunk of the money to charity so she won’t end up with much.

However, the dancer is reportedly fine with that as she seems most concerned about moving on from this matter and getting back to work.

Do you think Alex Welch should have gotten more money?

    I’m sure what matters to Alex is Demi getting better and being happy and healthy again. Demi is so talented and so wonderful. Love you girl!

    She got a black eye. Not a broken leg. I’m surprised she got that much considering how minor her injuries were.

    For a black eye? $10,000 is too much money let alone $100,000!!

    Everyone acts as if demi assaulting someone isn’t a big deal and the girl deserved it! Seriously people demi didn’t even have proof that the girl snitched on her, so she punched the girl for no reason O.o I myself am a die heard demi fan but she has no right to put her hands on others for god sakes she could have just asked her instead of hitting her! Therefore the victim should have gotten a hell of a lot more money!

    I think Alex didn’t go so hard on Demi because they were all once friends before, sad how everything could fall apart so quickly.

    “Everyone acts as if demi assaulting someone isn’t a big deal and the girl deserved it!”

    Well she was wrong for hitting her but in all honesty. No, it wasn’t a big deal. Alex’s injuries were minor and frankly all Demi owed in my opinion was an apology and maybe a small compensation check. We’re talking bout the amount. 100,000 beans is frankly unconstitutional.

    “Seriously people demi didn’t even have proof that the girl snitched on her,”

    Well we don’t know WHAT really happened. But she was targeted for a reason. And like many people said before, nobody gets hit for no reason. Not saying you deserve to get hit, but if she did snitch (which I wouldn’t be surprised if she did) then I really can’t say I’m sympathetic to a snitcher.

    “so she punched the girl for no reason O.o”

    How do you know that? Have you heard Demi’s side? No. You have only ONE side of the story. Frankly It’s an arbitrary story “She brought them in and threatened them saying “if I find out who told me…grrr” come on. Are you serious? If you’re gonna lie, make up a better story rather than making Demi look like some dictator from a repressed country.

    “I myself am a die heard demi fan but she has no right to put her hands on others”

    Well…you’re right. She could’ve. But she didn’t. What’s done is done. You can’t change the past.

    “for god sakes she could have just asked her instead of hitting her!”

    If she asked, Alex would say No. You honestly think she’s gonna say “Oh yeah I ratted you out to save my own ass.”? Come on. I’m not saying Alex DID rat her out but from Alex’s recent little media binge, I wouldn’t be surprised if she did.

    “Therefore the victim should have gotten a hell of a lot more money!”

    No she shouldn’t have. That would’ve been on wrong on Alex’s end. By law Alex is owed JUST compensation. Meaning something for her troubles, medical damages and paralegal coverings. She is NOT owed anything above that. That’s what we call unconstitutional. it’s also what we call EXTORITION. Which is a crime. Unfortunately Extortion no longer exist. God bless America. Psh…

    “I think Alex didn’t go so hard on Demi because they were all once friends before, sad how everything could fall apart so quickly.”

    So instead of WATING till Demi got out of rehab and tried to settle this without media knowledge or lawyers involved, that’s her taking it easy on Demi? Getting lawyers involved and kicking her while she’s down? If she was really gonna take her friendship into consideration, then she would’ve waited till Demi was better and THEN talk to her when she got out. And then get compensation without getting lawyers involved. She did not do so. She sold her story and interviews to numerous news sites as well as places and turned this into a media circus. That’s called fame whoring.

    No one is acting like Demi did nothing wrong! believe me, on twitter the conversations have got very heated between fans. But at the same time, Alex should have kept it private. Alex said an apology was important to her, why not wait until could give her that apology? No, she went public and sold it to online sites. That’s underhand. As for whether Demi had proof or not. We don’t know anything in that regard. As it stands we only know Shorty’s side of the story. So I’ll wait before condemning Demi totally thank you.
    Alex was also working the next day and partying so she doesn’t get more sympathy than is usual (from me) for an altercation of this kind.
    I hope they can BOTH move on and start 2011 as a fresh year like it should be. 2nd chances.
