“We support Demi’s decision to put her health first and we send her our best wishes,” a Disney spokesperson tells PEOPLE.
Lovato’s Disney show, Sonny with a Chance, continues to be on a scheduled hiatus.
The star has been dealing with “emotional and physical issues for some time,” her rep confirmed to PEOPLE, adding, “Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help.”
A source close to Lovato’s family told PEOPLE, “She was bullied in school. She fought through eating disorders and has struggled with cutting. Demi is taking control by getting help.”
