Demi Lovato Seeking Treatment For Cutting, Eating Disorder

| Filed under: Sad SadDemi Lovato

demi-lovato-seeks-treatment-for-eating-disorder-and-cutting

This is absolutely heart wrenching.

Demi Lovato checked herself into a rehab facility yesterday for what her rep called "emotional and physical issues," and now sources close to her family have confirmed that she's being treated for cutting, as well as an eating disorder.

Insiders explain:

"She fought through eating disorders and has struggled with cutting. [She] is taking control by getting help. She definitely had body-image issues. She was always conscious of her weight. Like many other teenage girls, she struggled a lot to fit in and find acceptance. She's very sensitive, very intuitive and that is part of what makes her a wonderful performer – very talented. It is double-edged sword. I think she felt that the hard time she had [in school], problems with kids who were incredibly vicious made her stronger. But none of us feel strong every day."

Poor thing. It's hard to keep in mind sometimes that at the end of the day, she's just an 18 year old girl with the same problems and insecurities as anyone else her age - just under a tremendous amount more pressure.

We are, however, relieved to know that she's seeking help and ready to face her issues.

Stay strong, bb - we're thinking of you.

    Poor girl! [re=5426996]

    Re: Dxxx – oh please why don't you be an adult and stfu i wasn't talking to you. i was voicing my opinion.



  3. 103

    Poor Demi :( I truly feel so bad for her! She's always seemed so perfect and beautiful, I really can't believe this.. My heart goes out to her! But i really wish she would have been honest and upfront with her fans and shared this with us.

    Re: ThePerezHater – Haha your so funny. Okay first of all i said i have LIMITED sympathy! I do feel bad because shes going through something but at the same time she should see how lucky she is to be so privileged & idk where she gets the eating disorder from because i have never seen people call her fat. She looks very thin! I was bullied in middle school so i know what shes been through & im a transsexual so no i would not beat up a gay kid! Hahaha. Point is i obviously go through a lot of issues of how i look but i don't go cutting myself & she is in a far better position then me.

    Re: Dxxx – Don't try to "school" me on mental health. I have had REAL mental health issues & have been in the mental hospital. What she should have done is resolved these issues before she became famous! Shes always been a cutter & always been insecure. She's not powerless its not like cancer at all!! She should stop looking in the mirror at her non existent fat & put down the damn knife & realize that shes is in a better position then 99% of the worlds population!

    It's hard being a teen girl

    Re: ThePerezHater – Good posts. You and several people on here are dead on and are very educated and kind in your comments on this issue.
    These haters talk as if they live in the DARK AGES, with their bigoted, ill-researched, ignorant ARCHAIC banter about how Demi and stars like her who suffer from issues such as eating disorders and the like, are "ungrateful" or "don't deserve any sympathy". WTF?? Many celebs have had pressures put on them to act a certain way or be a certain way, whether they be from childhood or from adulthood. Demi herself has had issues with her father's absence from her life (as with many people celebs or not) and not only that I read in the past, also that she had weight problems (what's new to me is that I just read she had to be home-schooled, how awful. )I know what it feels like to be made fun of ridiculed in elementary. =[
    Damn, you hatin' mofos get with the times and do some research! x[
    Or go to the LEFT!

    I think the Jo Bro was the straw that broke her.

    O she got the crazy eyes, i knew it. oddly she is more talented than selena taylor miley (vocally) and i always thought she was prettier. but whatever hope she gets better and no doubt she will have a nice interview on oprah or something.

    Re: sjbaybay – Lol@RealMentalHealthIssues. You realize that a lot of the time, eating disorders have to do with control - and so does cutting, right? A lot of people with eating disorders can have an impaired self image, so while you may look at her and say "oh, she's skinny!" she can look in the mirror and see a 200pound person. And good. Don't have sympathy. She doesnt NEED your sympathy, nor do the hundreds of thousands of people out there who are going through the same shit that she does. Yeah, so I guess I call bullshit on your mental illness claims. I find it really hard to believe that anyone who actually has had serious mental issues would talk the way that you are.



  11. 111

    too bad she doesn't realize how great she is, even though I am not a big fan I think she is talentes and pretty and I would love to be like her, to have her voice and everything! she has no reason to be that insecure, I saw her live a week ago and I was so jelousy of her because she looked great!



  12. 112

    Bout time that fatty realized she needed help losing weight. She should kept cutting herself so she could shed a few more pounds. ;) Im kidding ofcourse



  13. 113

    Re: Manda756 – I'm not making judgement calls about her you dumb ass.



  14. 114

    Re: BIOTCH! – And we're free to insult you for being an idiot with a speech impediment. So good job. Oh and congrats to insulting americans by the way. You're a disgrace to this country :P



  15. 115

    Re: sjbaybay – Lol as funny as I am, sweetie, you are ten times funnier. So let me get this straight. Just because don't say it in public means that they aren't saying it and it's not true? So if someone here didn't state that you're a fucking moron, that means it's not true? That is the dumbest logic I ever heard. Again your idiotic idea that you KNOW her pretty much makes you look like a pretentious jack ass. Honestly I don't know what's funnier. The fact that you act like you know this person, or your deluded idea that you think every goes through the same thing as your going through. Grow a brain before you post kid. Leave this to the adults. Actually…scratch that. Your idiocy and light weight intellectual BS amuses me :)



  16. 116

    Re: sjbaybay – Actually you know nothing on MENTAL HEALTH issues, and if someone needs to be schooled, it's you. Just because YOU went through something doesn't make you an expert at it. Would it be different if she was taking drugs or doing something else besides cutting? Or no that doesn't get your sympathy motor running? Maybe she needs to go blind or do exactly what YOU did. News flash oh inept one. People deal with certain things differently. And the fact that she is in the PUBLIC EYE makes her issues ten times more magnified. Obviouisly she is not powerless. Because she is getting help. But you'd think a former bully victim like yourself would have sympathy for someone who has had it rough. And no her celebrity status does mean she has it better. If that was the case, then she wouldn't NEED to go to a “Treatment center” in the first place. Again you say you don't need to be “schooled” but your ignorance is telling me other wise.



  17. 117

    Get well Demi. You are beautiful and don't need to lose a pound.



  18. 118

    People don't cut themselves for attention this is a myth (I am ashamed to say I used to believe it too until I started studying mental health for my nursing degree).
    It is great she is seeking help, cutting can be very serious and even though she may not have suicidal ideation it can lead to accidental suicide.



  19. 119

    Disney is bad.



  20. 120

    I can't believe how some of you are commenting this. She's 18 - the same age as me - a lot of you can relate but just won't admit it. It's tough being her age, probably even moreso under the amount of pressure she's under. It's YOU ALL who are criticizing her appearance, personality, and personal life are the people that are driving her to this treatment center in the end. Some of you are just judging her without even looking into who she is. In the past she was bullied relentlessly and I think that had an overall lasting effect on her. Bravo Demi for making such a great decision. Your fans, friends, and family love you.



  21. 121

    Also people who keep saying she is ungrateful and she shouldn't be this way because she is rich, MENTAL ILLNESS DOESN'T DISCRIMINATE. It doesn't matter if you are the richest, most attractive, lucky person in the world you can still feel depressed etc.



  22. 122

    Demi, I hope you get through this. You are beautiful and talented and you deserve happiness just as much as everyone else in the world does. To everyone saying she doesn't deserve sympathy because she's rich and famous and has things most people don't , do your research. Lots of people who come from wealthy back grounds have issues with cutting and eating disorders. It's not about where you come from. It's about your ability to deal with stress and other things life throws at you. I'm 18. I have an eating disorder. And I use to cut. I lived a sheltered and for the most part, happy life. My family loves me and I love them. But for some reason I couldn't deal with the feelings I was having about my body in a healthy way. So I turned to unhealthy things. Demi Lovato is not attention seeking. She's not stupid. She's a teenage girl. I feel for her.

    Re: BIOTCH!Re: BIOTCH!Re: BIOTCH!Re: BIOTCH!Re: BIOTCH!Re: BIOTCH!Re: BIOTCH! – You are obviously very ignorant… actually you are a mouth-breathing idiot. You (like a lot of people with nary a coherent thought) truly believe that having money and fame magically makes someone's life perfect. If that were true, then what happened with the laundry list of rich and/or famous people that have self-destructed? Actually, don't answer that, as I suspect we would all be a little bit dumber after having read your answer. The worst thing about you is that you badmouth Demi, a kind, decent girl who has tried to do positive things with her celebrity and influence. Shame on you. Demi… we love you. Get better.



  24. 124

    D: i really hope she gets better soon! i read somewhere that it was this + still being upset about breaking up with joe. i hope he's punching himself in the face.

    125

    whats the difference between demi and lindsay lohan? i don't understand why perez can sympathize for one and completely mock the other when they're going through similar pressures. perez you are a fucking asshole.



  26. 126

    Demi is an adult. Although her condition is sad it can't be blamed on Joe Jonas or Ashley Greene. Breakups suck but seriously move on. People talk about how awful bullying is but then all the Demi fans just want to bash Joe and Ashley which IS bullying. Demi needs to have personal responsibility for her actions and that is what she's doing by going into treatment. People need to just pray for her and leave it at that and stop with the blame game.



  27. 127

    Re: ThePerezHater – Oh shut the fuck up you sound sooo retarded. I DONT KNOW HER!! & guess what niether do you. everything you and me are saying is just based on the little information we know. For all we know she could have just fought some girl on her tour and they told her to get "help" to make it look like she was a victim. We don't know anything thats going on so you can just stfu. i already fucking said i feel sorry for her BUT its a FACT that she is in a better position!!! for the life of me i can't understand why you care so much on what i think like seriously get a life. i read posts everyday of things i don't agree with but what do i care. shit just leave it at we have different opinions. if i knew her in person i WOULD be there for her. all im saying is if i was as privileged as her this wouldn't happen.



  28. 128

    Re: nattylicious001 – Good point she probably does see someone different then i do. Maybe i am in the wrong because i don't understand what shes going through. I just can't understand how someone who has everything can fuck it up like that! She has everything so why would she go cut her self? that's just stupid. Lol okay don't believe (:



  29. 129

    Re: Manda756 Cutting is a disease, and people who want attention show the world and cry, she did not. It is a physical release of emotional pain.
    You people are sick. As someone who battles bulimia you have no fucking clue, no clue at all. Seriously Hollywood is sick with their portrayal of what women look like. You don't think the Disney people tell her when she is getting too chubby or that no one makes her feel horrible about her body. We praise women who do coke to stay skinny or barely eat and claim to the world that they eat whatever they want and don't have to exercise. They are full of shit and I am sick of them also getting plastic surgery and claiming they didn't. They are fake and make beautiful natural women who eat the proper amount of food feel like shit. It is a disease that should not be taken lightly, You vile pieces of shit, seriously keep internet bullying because it makes you feel good. It's one thing to say someones singing sucks or their acting is awful, but acting like bitches about an eating disorder?! Re: BIOTCH! – I am sorry but our freedoms were not given to be used for attacking someone so vilely about cutting and an eating disorder, you are pathetic for even defending yourself that way. You sound like a 12 yr old girl with that free country bullshit.



  30. 130

    Re: sjbaybay – You're saying I sound retarded when you can't even write a proper sentence? Lol your stupidity is amazing. You're right. I don't know her. And guess what? Neither do you. So who are you to say “she is in a better position”? Hate to break it to you oh inept one but mental health issues have no discrimination towards anyone. Be it famous or not. But your post says anything but FEEL sorry for us. You claim she is in a better position. Why? Because she is famous? Because she has money? That doesn't mean better. If anything it's probably amplified due to everyone breathing down her neck. Sorry but your FACT is nothing more than a bias statement. And I'm just stating the fact that you know nothing and you're an idiot. You have no idea WHAT privileged is seeing as how you don't have to wake up next to a thousand camera lenses trying to capture your weakest moments. You really are an invalid you know?



  31. 131

    Re: sjbaybay – You know for someone who claims to share the same issue she did, you're pretty shallow when you only look at the monetary side of her situation. Is that you think about? Her money or her position? That doesn't mean she is immune to these types of issues. You have the nerve to say I sound retarded when you make stupid statements like these? Lol I highly doubt you even know a thing about mental health seeing as how you have this “fame= everything” mindset. What's stupid is that you assume you know what's going on in her life when all you do is read into her fame. Good lord, your type of ignorance is not only shameful, but it's dangerous. Do the world a favor and educate yourself. Or at least think of something witty to say. Hell I could get a laugh out of your stupidity lol.

    Re: mscalto – 12 year old? YOu're giving her too much credit amigo :)

  34. 134

    Re: ThePerezHater – Seeing as how all my life iv starved & had a handicapped mother who had to live off of welfare, still does actually. Moving from place to place! And your trying to say that shes in a WORSE place? Wow just shut your stupid ass up already. AGAIN since your dumbass doesn't seem to understand i don't claim to know her life!! the only thing i stand by is she IS in a better place then i ever was. i had to deal with my transsexualism & deal with never having money to eat!!! she doesn't have to worry about anything else she can solely focus on getting better & not anything else. There's a reason why ppl kill to be in her position dumbass!!! Its better to be a cutter with all the money in the world then a cutter on the streets!!! Its no fucking secret having cameras up your ass is part of the job but she still got into this business & still is! so your point is invalid!



  35. 135

    like her in the beginning, then she became a bitch. I hate when people feel sympathy for these rich fucks. Let me go cut myself because I'm making millions of dollars. I can't find a fucking job, move or anything…do you see me cutting myself? grow up you fucking fat ass starlet. Your fucking thighs looked big as shit in your movie. Slice your wrist a little deeper next time so no one will have to deal with your shit. People like you piss me off. You get no sympathy from me whore.



  36. 136

    Re: sjbaybay – I'm sorry to hear about your little sob story. I really am. Honestly you sound like someone who is trying to justify personal spite against someone with this Sob story of yours, and I find it deplorable that you would exploit it here on this page, but whatev. Sorry to hear about it. But if your dumb ass actually READS what I had to say, you'd see that I never said she was in a WORSE place. Due to the fact that you are a blithering idiot with the intelligence of a rock, I said her situation is ten times more amplified than a normal person who is in situation. Being famous and have MONEY does NOT make a situation better necesserily. If that was the case, she could switch her depression on and off like a light switch. You say I have no idea about what life is? Lol that's funny coming from someone who can't even read my post correctly. She's certainly a DIFFERENT place than you are and she is handling it differently that I will agree. But a BETTER place? What you had to allegedly go through (and judging by your previous verbal faux pas, I'd say it's more fiction than fact, but for arguments sake I'll humor you) is pretty tough, I can only imagine. But as tough as that was, it's not the same as constantly being under watch and having to live up to some bogus “role model” ideals that the media has dubbed you with.



  37. 137

    Re: sjbaybay – You think she only has to worry about getting better and what not? Lol I guess you have yet to truly understand what it's like to be with a corporation that is constantly telling you what to say, what to eat, how to treat your body, how to talk to the media, when you can go out or even questioning simple things like going for a walk without having a ton of camera's following you around. Not to mention WHEN she gets out, she'll still have to deal with that pressure. So yeah you need to be schooled in not only mental health but in reality none the less you invalid. I find it funny that you say people would kill to be in her position yet you clearly do not KNOW what her position is. Her REAL position behind the fake smiles and all that glamor and glitz. You don't have the slightest CLUE what her position is you fucking moron. Being a cutter with “all that money in the world” is still being a cutter. You still share the same issues and problems anyone else has. The only difference is that cutter “on the street” will never have to worry about people riding their coat tails to make money off of them. They at least have privacy. Not to mention anyone on the street would have more to deal with that just cutting them selves. Seriously if you are going to use an analogy have one that makes sense.



  38. 138

    Re: sjbaybay – But YOUR logic is just because she is in the business means that she's not allowed to have a bad day? Or she can't vent her frustration towards people who are constantly bugging her? Lol oh good lord, you're dumber than I originally thought you were. My point IS valid. You're just too fucking stupid to actually see it. Like I said kiddo, this is for the adults. Obviously your phoney bologna sob stories and mickey mouse logic needs some fine tuning before you start posting. But don't worry, I'll still be here to school you. No matter how inept you are ;-)



  39. 139

    Re: OBAMA_IS_A_JOKE – Why is it that all the insensitive people are the ones that sound like morons? I mean really. Can't you make a comment without typing like some invalid with a speech impediment. I mean I'm not grammar nazi myself, look at the way I post. But for the love of god can you please please PLEASE put a little effort into your writings? You sound like a 16 year old emo myspace kid who's just jealous of people's success. I understand though. I mean you see these people who accomplished more than you probably did. I mean she's what 18? and already did a lot with her life? But I'm sure that's nothing compared to your daily shift at Star Bucks or the 7/11. Oh wait…you don't have a job…my bad. Your time spent on the unemployment line collecting money from a president you seem to hate must be oodles of excitement compared to traveling around the world and meeting new people every day. Aim High Willis! Aim High ;-)



  40. 140

    Re: OBAMA_IS_A_JOKE – But I want to know how you say that you don't have sympathy for her, yet throw in this half assed sob story about how you're ass is getting kicked in the game of life. I don't understand that. It's almost as if you want US to feel sympathy for you because you are a lazy fuck who doesn't want to work or do anything with their lives. I mean otherwise you wouldn't even mention your current situation. Or say she should kill herself next time. What makes me laugh is that you WANT sympathy. Let's not beat around the bush, but you also want people to have the same hater mindset like you…that's just hilarious lol.



  41. 141

    Re: ThePerezHater – Lol oh god you must have no life at all 3 paragraphs just for me? Aww how sweet (: but anyways im wayy to busy to read everything you wrote so ill address the few i had the time to read. You say i have no clue what her life is like? Okay neither do you unless your selena gomez in disguise :O all i hear is you repeating your self over and over and over and OVER. give it a rest! You keep calling me names im stupid blah blah blah like you fucking know me! I'm right your wrong PERIOD. Move the fuck on. No matter what you say the FACT remains she IS in a better position weather she has a mental disorder or not. Thank you I'm right (: Haha.

    She's a beautiful girl, but I thought I saw this coming. To continue to tour with Jonas wouldn't be advisable considering. Her disappointment is commensurate with her expectations, and she deserves to have some. (expectations.) She's just a young girl.



  43. 143

    As someone who has experienced both of these issues, of course I feel bad for anyone else that has to go through it…

    but think about it, she has so much support just because she is famous…what about the people like me who didnt have that support? Plus, she has the luxury of being beautiful, rich, talented and famous…what about the young girls/boys who dont have that?

    Im sure Demi has had her issues, but instead of sympathizing over her..maybe people should take the time to sympathize for the other young girls/boys out there that are going through similar issues, and are alone…

    think about it. shes 18, in the spotlight. she may be doing what she loves, she may have alot of money. but how much has she sacraficed to get there? leaving her friends and family to work, to tour. Theres no getting out of it now. if she quits, the paparazzi is going to be on her still. the world and the magazines are gonna wonder what shes doing. they are still going to invade her life. Theres people who NO BODY cares about anymore. and they are still in magazines, on here. Shes always going to be part of the spotlight. its probably very lonely and confusing, who wants to date her and be her friends. and why? money? because they actually like you? its gotta be really tough being this age and have all of that all the time. its rude and uncalled for to say she wants attention, when she already has it.

  45. @v@ says – reply to this


    145

    Re: Brittany Kay – You can have people and money all around you and still be alone, sometimes moreso. These kids are pushed to work no matter what they're feeling inside, without a break, because they're products. Money or no, you can find support - you just need to be able to ask for it. Support is free. Trials build character, eventually; but I do know what you mean.



  46. 146

    Re: sjbaybay – I was wondering when you were going to break out the “paragraph” argument. And as the predictable moron you are, you've done so. I never understood why people complained about three short paragraphs. Is your reading comprehension that shitty that you can't read past a few sentences? I think I already answered my own question though lol. Yes I said you have no clue what her life is like and neither do I. But from what I read about past child actors and actresses, is that this job is stressful and that money does not equate to a “better position”. At least in terms of mental health. You haven't disprove that. At least without a retort from yours truly. Nor does saying “I'm right your wrong, PERIOD” prove anything. Lol that alone is pretty funny. What are you in kindergarten? You might as well call me a “doody head” you ignorant twat. But do continue to repeat your unproven argument as well as your nonsensical BS. I find it rather amusing :)



  47. 147

    Re: Brittany Kay – Who says we don't sympathize with them? I mean just because Demi is famous doesn't mean we sympathize with her MORE. It just means we sympathize with her. However if you ask any sane person if they can sympathize and feel bad for anyone who is in that position yeah of course we would feel bad for her. But people talk about fame and money and what not as some sort of pot of gold at the rainbow. When in reality and from what we've seen from other stars in the past and present, it's really a double edged sword. Yeah they have money yeah they that hollywood good looks talent and what not. But they also sacrifice a lot as well. Simple things like just hanging out with friends and taking a walk down the street without having cameras shoved in their faces 24/7 is very taxing. People don't see the ugly side of what celebrities go through. And they should. Hell I'm arguing with some idiot who thinks that money and fame automatically means a good life. I guess they never heard of the song “mo money Mo problems”



  48. 148

    Re: sjbaybay – "Thank you I'm right (: Haha. "

    Lol these type of statements make me laugh. You know what this says "cop pout" and thats what your entire paragraph is. One huge lame cop out because you're too ignorant to actually see what I'm trying to say.

    Oh and for the record, you did some name calling your self there sweetie. Nice try of playing the victim though. You deserve brownie points for that. But seriously…put a little effort in your posts eh babe?



  49. 149

    Re: ThePerezHater – Um im just tired of arguing its so fucking pointless. Am i ever gonna change my mind? NO. Are you? NO so why keep arguing ill just leave it as I'm right. I am listening to what your saying but you keep talking like you know everything about everything when you don't know shit. Money gives people opportunity point blank! If life in the spotlight is soooo terrible then why is she she still in it? Nobody is forcing her to stay she can go live a normal life! I'm not playing the victim i DID say things to you to but i did NOT start it (: & don't call me babe weirdo mmkay perv?



  50. 150

    Re: ThePerezHater – I don't mind reading. I actually like reading especially the BS you post Tahaha :D its just time wasted on someone you don't know. But anyways she's 18 an adult shes not some 9 year old little girl getting pushed to do things! This is what she WANTS to do! So shut up with " the camera in her face 24/7" its so fucking annoying obviously she likes it! or knows that its better to put up with that then to quit!



  51. 151

    Re: sjbaybay – Money also gives people problems. As does fame and fortune. I never said it was TERRIBLE. I said it was a double edged sword. You on the other hand see it as a one sided thing. Money fame equals the good life. Which is partly true. However that also comes with stress. And yes you ARE playing the victim since you continue to use your sob story technique. It's called being called out your BS. BABE.



  52. 152

    Re: sjbaybay – Well I am glad you like reading my stuff. I enjoy reading your tomfoolery so I guess it works out. You claim I'm wasting time yet what are you doing responding to me? And why do you continue to use the same contradicting argument that only shows how one sided you are? Thats all it is. A one sided argument. You say I Post about someone I don't know? Guess what broham. You're doing the same exact thing. You don't know what she goes through. You have no fact. However I back up MY theory with what I see. And from past celebrities on how they handle the stress, I'd say it's safe to assume that with her profession, there is a price to pay. Like all “jobs” or “Careers” but you don't see that. I guess that out of sight out of mind mentality works for you eh? I look forward to your next verbal faux pas ;-)



  53. 153

    i cant believe how rude and mean people are.
    she is a teenager COME ON
    being rich and all doesnt mean you wont have issues!!!

    no Demi, your so cute and pretty! Don't do these things to your body! When your old and you have pain you're gonna look back and wish that you had your teenage body, wait and see. Don't give into the haters! Your such an awesome actress and Miley used to be but then she turned into a bad girl and I dont like that. I love you and your show because your so sweet nice and innocent! Sonny With a Chance has become my fave show and I love your music!

    Re: BIOTCH! – wow. you're a fucking idiot. it has nothing to do with fame and riches. she's a human being. she experiences the same emotions as any other person, rich/famous or not. she has insecurities and struggles just like any other person. eating disorders and self mutilation has nothing to do with being unsatisfied with your life. it's about control. when you believe that everything else in your life has gone to shit and your emotions become out of your control, you become OCD about being in control physically, which is impossible because you need to be in control mentally in order to control yourself physically. also, depression is physiological, which is a biological mechanism, which is a fancy way of saying this is out of her control, but she can learn to manage it, which is exactly what a treatment center will teach her. also, it's offensive that you are calling a treatment center a "crazy house." do your research before you say such ignorant things. this is coming from somebody who has a history in treatment centers for cutting, eating disorders, and bipolar disorder.

    :/ My guess was correct. Poor girl.

    Re: ThePerezHater – How am i playing a victim? I'm not even talking about myself anymore. You don't back your theory with ANYTHING! again i ask you if its so bad why is she still in it? Exactly just because some people in the past had break downs doesn't mean it was because of the fame. Shes been a cutter before she got famous so get your facts straight asshole! and i only reply to you because im not gonna give you the satisfaction of winning this stupid argument. when it comes to fame there is no price to pay. she gets all these people close to her for support and all the money to be able to go away to a private fucking island to get away from the stress you dick! the only way being famous fucks you up is if you were fucked up to begin with!!! now go get a life!! its done i won (:

    Re: sjbaybay – Really? So you giving me your little sad Sob story isn't you playing the victim? Or you talking about how you “had it bad” isn't playing the victim at all? Really could have could have fooled me. If that wasn't the case then you wouldn't even bring it up. See unlike you I backed UP my theory with evidence. I talked about how FAMOUS people in the past had break downs because of the STRESS of their business. Do you really need a list or are you too damn stupid to actually conduct a google search of FAMOUS people who had break downs? And I am well aware that she was a cutter before her fame shot out. But none the less. This was a HUGE stress that added to it. You can't deny that. Well you could but you'd only sound stupid.



  59. 159

    Re: sjbaybay – But you basically just shot yourself in the foot right there. You're replying because of some sort of “winning” complex? Lol. Who says I'm here to win anything? I'm merely proving you wrong and I did. I backed up my statements. You backed up jack shit. You say there is no price to pay when it comes to fame? Yeah tell that to some of the former patients of the betty ford clinic. Or you might want to tell that to Orson welles's family. A man who literally ate his fat ass to death because of the stress. And let's not forget Elvis. I mean the stuff that happened to him? No the leaches that constantly fed off him had nothing to do with him being famous. Yeah there;s no price to pay. Ok whatever you say.

    Re: sjbaybay – Also she's not in a “fucking private island” you moron. You don't know where she is. So if you're going to argue with me? Have a little consistency and do your research. Also you say fame only fucks you up when you were fucked up to begin with? Well Britney Spears was a pretty normal kid growing up. Had a loving family and what not. When she became famous well…you know where that went. See this is called BACKING UP your argument. You've done jack shit and proved nothing. If you call your pathetic excuse of a post a “Victory” then I feel sorry for you. Actually I don't. Getting you to post is a larf lol. Face it…you lost. Try again LOSER :P



  61. 161

    Re: sjbaybay – "and i only reply to you because im not gonna give you the satisfaction of winning this stupid argument"

    Oh and for the record, I got you to contradict yourself, and pointed out where you are "Playing the victim card" not only that I pretty much dethroned any argument you shoved my way. I already won sweetie. I'm just riding your stupid ass now lol. Don't let your defeat hurt you too much babe.



  62. 162

    Re: ThePerezHater – GET A LIFE!!!! if you were in front of me i would very well keep going with this waste of a convo but i'm tired of coming back to read a bunch of hate from a hateful person! I didn't say she was on a private island stupid i said she COULD if she wanted to!!! you say you didn't come here to win but you just claimed to win about 50x haha. in the end you won NOTHING because you have no facts. whats happening to demi has nothing to with what happened to crazy britney spears. you just obviously like to argue. go ahead and argue to the wall cause im done listening to your BS cause thats all your saying is BS!!! go join a club or something because yourclearly are a nobody. Good day (:



  63. 163

    Also, if you can't handle the "stressful" lifestyle, then get the fuck out of Hollywood.



  64. 164

    Re: sjbaybay – Hateful person? On the contrary. This is all out of entertainment. I don't even know or care to know enough about you to make an opinion of hate. I'm merely saying you're an idiot who knows nothing. And this is what you said “She gets all these people close to her for support and all the money to be able to go away to a private fucking island to get away from the stress you dick!” Sorry but the proof is in front of me and not as you claimed. And now I didn't come here to win. However Victory was on my end seeing as how I proved my point and you have yet to prove yours. I gave facts which you ignored. And what happened with Britney Spears was an EXAMPLE of what fame CAN do to a person. Again you're just too stupid to make the connection. Even if it was an obvious one. Learn to insult kid, this was at best chump change.



  65. 165

    Okay, yeah it is sad that she has an eating disorder/cutting problem but, the problem here is not bullying. I'm tired of people blaming bullying for their problems. In light of an increase in teen suicides Celebrities are speaking out against bullying, but what do they think this is going to accomplish really. Sorry but, bullying is a part of life there is always going to be rude people whether it be in school, work, etc its inevitable I don't think that there is any law, school policy, or celebrities opinion that is going to change that. What people should be doing to stop things like teens suicide, cutting, eating disorders, etc. is teach kids how to cope with bullying in a healthy way. I find it ironic that television and hollywood bombard us with images of young people going to rehab and make reckless teens seem cool yet, their blaming bullying as the main problem in society



  66. 166

    . The media and hollywood are the real problem because their the ones that make suicide look glamorous on television. Also, as a sidenote I'd like to point out that I'm actually from Colleyville, Texas the town where Demi Lovato was bullied and yes I can vouch that there are a lot of rude people here and I was bullied just as much if not more than Demi (since I actually went to school and didn’t leave in the 7th grade) , but I didnt' resort to going to a treatment center for it. Why, because I was taught to appreiciate the good things you have in life and not to wallow in self-pity. Maybe instead of trying to "eliminate bullying" which is an impossible task we should be doing something a little more positive like teaching people that they have to deal with bullying in healthy ways and that they shouldn't resort to drastic ways like suicide. I find it amazing that people are blaming bullying for teen suicide rates going up when bullying has been around since the beginning of mankind, what is new is that celebrities and the media make things like rehab and self-pity seem like good ways to handle problems. When we sit here and say aww poor rich, famous, and pretty celebrities we are giving them attention and sympathy which only reinforces destructive behavior.



  67. 167

    Poor Demi :( No one realises they go through these things till something really bad happens, I love her, she's so nice and down to earth . I really hate haters :(
    Get better soon Demi ;(
    Oh yeah and Perez

    "Poor thing. It's hard to keep in mind sometimes that at the end of the day, she's just an 18 year old girl with the same problems and insecurities as anyone else her age - just under a tremendous amount more pressure."
    Think of that next time you want to post something negative about Miley Cyrus :/



  68. 168

    Re: ThePerezHater – Feel better? How many times do i have to tell you that you proved nothing. I;m 100% sure that if she wasn't famous this still would of happened to her probably even sooner cause of bullying!! So her being famous kind of saved her from the life she would of had without it! Your name says ThePerezHATER sooo yes you are a hateful person!



  69. 169

    Re: sjbaybay – Sweetie you can say it as much as you want. Doesn't mean you proved me wrong. In fact due to the fact that you have a reading impediment, you obviously MISSED a lot of my points. You say you are 100 percent sure that if she wasn't famous this still would've happened? How? Do you have proof of that? If she wasn't famous then would never have heard of her or cared. SO how do you know that would have happened? Because “Famous” may have given her a little confidence boost, but I showed you where FAME can be a double edged sword. I gave you examples of how certain celebrities coped negatively and even DIED because of how they coped with it. But no you don't see that…you just brushed over it like everything else I said lol. You're a moron. You really are.

    PS: I call myself the Perez Hater as a joke…you're so clueless it's not even funny. Lol as you were idiot.

    Re: BIOTCH! – Wow… projecting much?



  71. 171

    Poor thing. It must be awful to be publicly dumped by your boyfriend and then go on tour with him. Then thinking shes fat?!?!? She is a beautiful girl and I hope she comes to realize this.



  72. 172

    I went to rehab when i was 17 definatly changed my life for a better. Good Luck girl



  73. 173

    Stay strong, Demi.
    You have been an inspiration for me for years, and the situation you are in now inspires me even more. You are such a strong person for realizing that you need help, and letting people help you. I'm sorry that the entire world has to know about your problems, it must be hard sharing such a personal matter with everyone, which makes you even stronger.
    I'm looking forward to seeing you happy and healthy again, but take all the time you need to recover.



  74. 174

    Demi, I'm praying for you! You know you stepping up and admitting that makes me admire you so much more. It takes alot of courage to do that and I really look up to you now, I'm 17 and also have an eating disorder and cut. There's alot of people out there who take cutting as a joke or to make fun of. Whatever it is that you're going thru or whatever it is that makes you come to this point of not feeling good enough. Hunny you are you're beautiful on the inside and no matter if you gained 10, 15 pounds you'd still be beautiful. The media will always mix up stories and add in what they want. It's annoying everyone goes thru this stuff you're only human and perfection has way too high of standards. Anyways I know I'm kinda rambaling but I hope you get better getting help is the best decision you can make and by doing so you're helping alot of other girls out there! I'm also looking online for a facility, god bless.



  75. 175

    I love you!



  76. 176

    The perez hater hahaahah that last post was funny I digg.
