Demi Lovato quits her Disney show Sonny With A Chance

"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," says Demi Lovato about her decision to leave Sonny With A Chance.


Demi Lovato has quit her Disney show Sonny With A Chance.

The 18-year-old singer-and-actress—who was released from rehab in January after three months of treatment for an eating disorder—has decided to leave the comedy show because she was nervous about going back in front of the camera.

She told People magazine: "It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music.

"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."

Demi—who has also confessed to having had a nervous breakdown prior to her entry into rehab—has the full backing of the Disney Channel, with a spokesperson saying they "respected" her decision to leave.

A representative said: "We respect Demi’s decision to focus full-time on her music and not immediately return to her acting career.

"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."
