That's the story on this very slow news day, via MTV, which gets its word via a paragraph completely buried in this Associated Press piece about cheap concert tickets.
In short: Someone in Lovato's camp says that, even after entering rehab in October to deal with "emotional and physical issues" that may or may not have to do with getting into fights and/or reportedly using cocaine, Lovato will indeed go ahead with a tour in 2011 and that she'll release a new album, too.
From the AP piece: "Her camp says the tour is still on track, despite her entering treatment for 'emotional and physical issues.'"
Treatment she's still in by, the way. Although, don't fret, there's a happy Christmas tie-in to this story!
