Joe Jonas had his say and now it's Demi Lovato's turn.

After the Jonas Brothers singer dished about their brief relationship -- which took place in 2010 when she was in the throes substance abuse, he brashly pointed out -- the "X Factor" judge is responding. Surprisingly, she was cool with him sharing details, which included how he was "living a lie" when he was with her because he "wasn't happy" but felt he had to "stay in it for her because she needed help." (Joe also shared a story about how Demi and Miley Cyrus got him to smoke pot for the first time when he was at 17 or 18, coercing him by saying, "'Try it! Try it!'")

While Demi, who has spoken out about her relationship with Joe before, seemed cool with his candid comments, her big sis, Dallas Lovato, apparently wasn't.

While Demi has dished about their brief romance and shared that they have been able to maintain a friendship, this is the first time Joe has really gone there. His interview also talked about the night Demi went to rehab. As the story goes, she was touring with the Jonas Brothers and got into a physical altercation with a backup dancer on the airplane between tour stops. "Things kept building up, and Demi ended up punching a girl in the face on a plane, because she thought the girl was blaming her for something," he recalled. "Everybody gasped, and the girl just started bleeding." When the plane touched down, she was whisked off to rehab.

Demi's nonchalance about the Joe's comments is likely because rehab changed her life for the better, she's said (and said). Between being Simon Cowell's right-hand gal on "X Factor," her growing music catalogue, and a new book, she's also a bigger success today. So, despite being dumped by a Jonas, life is good for Demi. It's actually pretty great.
