Demi Lovato Announces She Won’t Be Returning To ‘Sonny With A Chance’

Demi Lovato is taking it one step at a time. First, she checked herself into rehab late last year, revealing issues with bullying, cutting, and eating disorders. Then she was released from rehab late January this year. Now she announces that she will not be returning to her Disney Channel show Sonny With a Chance.

“I don’t think going back to Sonny would be healthy for my recovery,” Demi tells People magazine. “Being in front of a camera would make me nervous.”

“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,” Demi adds. “It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music.”

Demi took to Twitter to take the time to thank her fans, saying: “Thank you all so much for your support with the decisions I’ve decided to make with my career. I love you guys. ‘Sonny’ was a chapter in my life I will be forever grateful for. Thank you all for watching. Can’t wait to see the new format for ‘So Random’!”

She may not be getting in front of the camera any time soon, but Demi’s been teasing about her music lately on Twitter.

“Getting a healthy workout in then heading to … the studio,” she wrote last week. And the day before that, she revealed whom she might be hitting the studio with on this next album.

“@Timbaland007 for real though … Are you ready?! Idk about you but I believe magic is gonna come out of this collab,” she said. “@Timbaland007 I was ready before I was born!! @Timbaland007 cannot wait!!!”

Hmm, wonder who she could be referring to?? Could it be Timbaland – especially since she’s been saying she’s wanted to have more of an urban sound on her next album? Could possibly be! Guess only time will tell…

Are you bummed Demi is not returning to Sonny With a Chance?

Or do you think she is better off without the show?
