Bam Margera Isn't Alone — All These Celebs Have Battled Eating Disorders

We were shocked to learn on the return of Epicly Later'd on Viceland that Bam Margera, the beloved hard-partying skater from MTV's Jackass, once struggled with bulimia.

According to his mother, it was his body image problems, exacerbated by appearing on TV, that led him to drink in the first place, as he tried to emulate his gaunt friend, HIM singer Ville Valo, who preferred alcohol to food.

We also respect Bam and his fam for coming forward now that he's getting sober.

It's important for people suffering from these disorders to see they're not alone. People from all walks of life suffer from eating disorders, not just models and actresses.

Here are a few more celebs who have bravely opened up…

Kesha Opens Up About How Online Bullying Fueled Her Eating Disorder In New Essay

| Filed under: InspirationVogueKeshaMental HealthEating DisordersBullyingDepression

Kesha

In a new essay for Teen Vogue, Kesha pens an inspiring message about overcoming her eating disorder and finding happiness despite being bullied online.

The 30-year-old singer allowed herself to be vulnerable in the emotional piece opening up about being an "outcast" ever since she was young — but it was the cruel opinions of others, combined with anxiety and depression, that led to the TiK ToK artist's eating disorder.

Kesha wrote:

"When I think about the kind of bullying I dealt with as a child and teen, it seems almost quaint compared with what goes on today. The amount of body-shaming and baseless slut-shaming online makes me sick. I know from personal experience how comments can mess up somebody's self-confidence and sense of self-worth. I have felt so unlovable after reading cruel words written by strangers who don't know a thing about me."
