Troubled teen star, Demi Lovato has confirmed that she is in fact leaving her sitcom, Sonny With a Chance. Lovato, who checked into a Chicago-based rehab facility last fall, says that returning to the series “wouldn’t be healty for her recovery.”

Lovato told People Magazine, “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. Being in front of a camera would make me nervous.”

The Disney Channel released a statement saying, “We respect Demi’s decision to focus fulltime on her music and not immediately return to her acting career,” a rep for the Disney Channel said in a statement. “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.”
