Demi Lovato Facing Pressure From Simon Cowell To LOSE WEIGHT For X Factor?! Hold Up!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooDemi LovatoRehabMental HealthWellness

demi simon weight

We've all seen Simon Cowell's no-nonsense, harsh tongue at work on both the judges panel for American Idol and X Factor, but this is just UGLY. And because of that, we sincerely hope that this not true.

According to a new report in Star Magazine, however, he's apparently told returning judge Demi Lovato that despite her well-documented public breakdown and rehab stint for self-harming and bulimia, she STILL needs to lose 20 pounds before the reality competition begins production next fall, and is demanding that she work off the weight this summer!

Insiders explain:

“Simon doesn’t expect Demi to be supermodel skinny, but he does want her to look like she’s in shape. He’s set a weight-loss goal of 20 lbs. for Demi and asked her to work hard on it through the spring and summer. [Simon] is very supportive of her battles and is going above and beyond to make sure she loses weight in a healthy way.”


Because we think being supportive of her battle would be to not put ANY excess pressure on her regarding her body.

She's looking FABULOUS as she is, not to mention BARELY out of her sober living facility, and he's going to start making her feel uncomfortable with her size?


A spokesperson for Simon has issued the following statement:

"This story is complete lies. Simon has never and would never, ever say this. It has been completely made up."

Phew! So glad to hear that this is nonsense! As it SHOULD be!

You've worked SO hard to get to where you're at now, Demi! Don't let ANYBODY make you feel like there's anything you have to change about yourself!

  7. jill says – reply to this

    Demi should read Kelly Osbourne's 2 new books: "Two Fingers Down Your throat to a Skinny New You" & "Booze, Benzos, Bulimia , and New Bikinis"

    Re: jill

    fat amy is huge. demi is like 1/4 of that. she's fine.

  10. 10

    don't listen to perez guys, this got denied.

  11. Hunter says – reply to this


    Simone's rep said this story was fake…
    And for the people calling her fat, you're a disgusting human being. This girl hated herself so much that she threw up when she ate & starved herself. She's happy and healthy now and an excellent role model that girls don't need to be a size 0 to be beautiful, and that should be encouraged (to be happy with being healthy, and not looking like a bag of bones), not frowned upon.

  12. 12

    Ok that's just horrible. Demi is gorgeous no matter what the hell she looks like. She saved my life from heroin. So fuck Simon. That's not support. She's sexy as fuck and looking healthy idk if she's really happy yet but she looks amazing

  13. rey says – reply to this


    Shes fat. TTYN. send her back to east LA.

  14. 14

    as simple as that.

  15. 15

    Simon is right; Lovato is chubby. I won't watch if she's on, because she's a talentless, stupid bitch. But she does need to drop a few pounds. Just think … in a year or two, she can claim that her weight loss made her depressed and so she started to cut herself again; she can use it in her endless "I'm a victim" whine. Cowell should just fire her.

  16. 16

    Re: Hunter – Blah blah blah. Nobody cares what you think of the people who don't agree with you, you pathetic cow. Sticks and stones, you stupid twat. You do realize just how much you DON'T matter? People like you make me laugh. Just go die already.

    Re: Pansy Hunter

    Stop trolling on Demi articles. We all know you love her.

  18. 18

    So where is Laqueesha? I'm sure she's going to come on here and say some cheesy ass joke about Demi's weight like she does on every single one of her articles.

  19. 19

    Re: Pansy Hunter

    That's really hypocritical of you to say. You act like you matter.

  20. ally austin says – reply to this


    discusting!!!! you are seriuosly going to make her go back into rehab so just keep your stupid no good comments to yurself simon!!!!

  21. tori says – reply to this


    This is obviously not true. Why would you even put this up, Perez. This story just does more harm than good. I'm not even a fan of Demi but if I was on her place I would feel like shit seeing weight issues being brought up once again, when she used to be insecure about herself. I know this is impossible for you with the stories you put up everyday, but try and be a little more considerate.

  22. MB says – reply to this


    I can't fuckin stand these pop star contest shows, they ARE his fault, I like the auditions, but Simon Cowell is hilarious.

  23. Priscilla says – reply to this


    There is nothing wrong with her weight!! If this is true Simon needs mind his own business about her weight. Besides Demi doesn't even need to lose weight; she's perfect how she is. And to al u people calling her fAt.. God bless you guys!

  24. Lisa says – reply to this


    Re: Pansy Hunter – you're asking a wonderful human being to die. Maybe u should ask your disgusting mother to die for not raising u right. People like u should rot in hell. The world should be filled with less people like u and more people like demi.

  25. Sophie says – reply to this


    Most of the comments posted on here are horrendous. How disgusting! People calling a perfectly shaped girl fat. Some people need to learn that words DO hurt. It is disgraceful putting their insecurities on others. What has this world come to?

  26. 26

    He is ridiculous! Sure she is overweight but so is most of America. She isn't obese. PLus this isn't a beauty contest. All judges are behind a desk anyway. Doesn't he know she has body issues and mental health issues. The stress of this can send her back to her old, harmful ways.

  27. Rayne says – reply to this


    Re: eicarr – She is peragnet

  28. Just sayin says – reply to this


    Just saying…… Millions of Americans would lose 20 pounds to keep a job paying that much. I have to shave and be clothed a certain way at my job ,and if I don't want to comply I know where the 2 week notices are. Just saying

  29. Jen says – reply to this


    …you do realize that Simon didn't actually say that right? This is false. I read another article about how Simon didn't say anything like this it was made up. I can't believe people make these things up and make other people look bad. Shame on them

  30. Sophie says – reply to this


    Re: Pansy Hunter – I hope one day you realise your mistakes and change your ways because you can't live life judging and disrespecting people like that. I really do wish the best for you in the future because if you decide to carry on with an attitude like that, I'm telling you now that you wont have many friends. :)

  31. ohplease. says – reply to this


    so it's ok for Simon to deny contestants (NORMAL people) a spot on idol because they are out of shape, but when it comes to demi it's just cruel? she IS fat. over it.

  32. anna says – reply to this


    Re: jill – well fuck you then

  33. lalalaland says – reply to this


    Re: rey – its funny how you are calling somone fat and but your the one that neeeds to lose the weight…

  34. 34

    Re: Pansy Hunter – By the time Demi "THUNDER THIGHS" Lovato is an old lady she'll have an entire library FILLED with all the books she's written about on all the issues she had to go through in her life.

  35. 35

    Its obvious that being a full figured woman is natural to her, so changing that up just to satisfy her celebrity status is probably not the best thing for her. People should just deal with her as she is.

  36. 36

    Re: ohplease.

    I guess you, including most, don't know the definition of fat.

    She has no gut that hangs over like fat people do.

    I guess this website has been corrupted with many heroin addicts.

  37. Amaretto says – reply to this


    Re: Pansy Hunter – Just how pathetic your real life must be that you can't even internet troll worth a damn. #suckstobeyou

  38. Shelby says – reply to this


    This has been confirmed FALSE by Simon's rep. Please dont post FALSE information!! This rumor is so absurd.

  39. threeboys says – reply to this


    When Simon loses his double chin and man boobs, then he can comment on whether someone else needs to lose weight in order to be on the show. Demi was a great judge last year and is fabulous just the way she is.

  40. @v@ says – reply to this


    Hopefully fake, because it would be like the pot calling the kettle black.

  41. guest says – reply to this


    Re: erickhughes1 – man, it`s already been said that all of this was completely made up!!! Didn`t you all read that?

  42. Mariah says – reply to this


    Do you just make things up??????

  43. guest says – reply to this


    Re: Pansy Hunter – She didn`t endlessly whine about it! She just shared some of her life experiences with the public, so that it becomes known which kind of problems can occure because of certain experiences. That`s a good thing. We are all here to learn about life. And she`s very strong, because she was able to overcome those problems.

  44. guest says – reply to this


    Re: Mariah – Perez said already himself that the star magazine was wrong. Perez told you already that a spokesperson for Simon has said that this whole story was completely made up. So what`s your fuckin`problem. Perez has done absolutely no wrong here!

  45. Kkpayne says – reply to this


    I think she's perfect the wy she is!!! So shut up

    wow what total BS. This insider is a worthless piece of shit who has no relation to simon OR demi

  49. oz says – reply to this


    To be fair, she is overweighted and fat. Fan or not you can't deny it. She is not a good example for teenagers.

  50. 50

    Re: Pansy Hunter – so are you saying you don't give a fuck about Demi Lovato? Hmm?

  51. 51

    Re: oz

    No she isn't. According to the BMI scale, she's normal.

  52. Seth says – reply to this


    I agree with Simon, its not only an apperance thing but also a health thing and more celebrities need to support good health because America has such a high obesity rate. Demi went to rehab to get healthy now she is just as unhealthy as she was!

  53. E says – reply to this


    Re: asdfg – WHY WOULD YOU SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT!? Demi's a beautiful woman and I want to have a body like hers. You know, it's not always good to be supermodel skinny. It can be really unhealthy. Demi looks beautiful, and it's people like you who make girls with different body types feel bad about themselves. I can't help that I wasn't built to be super thin and neither can she. Maybe you should think about other people and how they feel before opening your mouth.
