Demi Lovato isn's ashamed to admit that she went through a period of severe drug addiction, disordered eating and mental health problems.
It’s no secret that Demi Lovato has used quite a few recreational drugs in her time, in fact the singer and X Factor judge has made it a point to be completely honest about her wilder years. In a candid interview with Access Hollywood the recovered former Disney starlet (we’re not saying that there’s some pattern here, but you know) opened up about her addiction and eating disorder.
Today Lovato is happy, healthy and ready to talk about her earlier problems.
“I’m very, very good at manipulating people and that was something that I did in my disease, I would manipulate everyone around me. There were times I would just continue to lie, so that everything looked OK on the outside,” she told AH’s Kit Hoover.
You wouldn’t know it from her innocent appearance during the Disney years, but Lovato admitted to some very unpleasant details.
The occasional blue dye job is a much less self-destructive act of rebellion.
“Something I’ve never talked about before, but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs. I couldn’t go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes,” she revealed. “I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it.”
