Demi Lovato decided to quit from her starring role as Sonny Munroe on Disney Channel’s Sonny With a Chance, the comedy show that made the teenage star famous. Lovato‘s decision was earlier reported by several international entertainment sites.

The teen star entered a treatment program for “emotional and physical issues” last October, and dropped out of a tour with the Jonas Brothers.

Lovato earlier revealed that she is battling an eating disorder since age eight, been a “cutter” since 11, and hit a backup dancer on the Jonas Brothers tour, which prompted her to seek treatment.

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

When asked about leaving Sonny, she mentioned, “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.”

Disney Channel, on the other hand said that it respected the decision of the teen star.

Sonny With a Chance will be reinvented as a sketch comedy program called So Random! and will premier this June.
