Karpel said that he is working with the firm that representing Lovato and “has faith that we will reach an amicable settlement.”
Welch was scheduled to do an on camera interview with RadarOnline.com and other media outlets on Tuesday, but Lovato’s camp asked the young dancer to hold off on interviews while their case is being negotiated.
