Sh*t's about to get real!!!
Last winter, Demi Lovato went to rehab to treat her cutting and eating disorder. But it looks like there might have been some other issues to deal with…
Demi has candidly revealed to Seventeen that yes, she was doing drugs and abusing alcohol. And yes, she got into some nasty fights with Miley Cyrus!!
I’m not gonna lie. I was self-medicating. I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain. [But now] I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t throw up after my meals, I don’t starve myself. There’s nothing that I do that I feel ashamed of.
There were two people [there for me]. No matter how many times we fight, we will always be in each others’ lives. [Miley and I] are very strong-headed, so when we fight, it’s brutal and we’re like, ‘We’re never going to be friends again!’ Then two days later, we’re like, ‘I love you and I miss you!’
Selena Gomez and I, we never fight. She’s not a confrontational person at all. Both of them will never leave my life no matter what happens, because we’ve been through so much together.
Aww, Demi!! We are so proud of you, gurl!
As much as it sucked to suffer all of that (especially as a teen), we think it can definitely work to her advantage. She's learned lessons that some celebs don't learn til their thirties…if they even learn 'em then, LOL!
