Cocaine & bulimia DEMI COMES CLEAN
Demi Lovato’s exposed her demons in her new Youtube doco Simply Complicated, including the fact she’s still a recovering bulimic.
“When I feel lonely my heart feels hungry and I end up bingeing,” says Demi, 25, who admits she suffered a serious relapse after splitting from boyfriend-of-six-years y y Wilmer Valderrama, 37, in June last year.
“I went three years without purging. When we broke up that’s one of the first things I did,” she says.
Demi also opened up about her cocaine addiction, saying, “I was sneaking [it] on planes, in bathrooms... I went on a bender of like, two months, where I was using daily. I was using while I had a sober companion... I would fake my drug tests with other people’s pee.
“There was one night when I used a bunch of coke and popped a few Xanax bars and I began to choke a little bit,” she adds. “I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, I might be overdosing right now.’”
Demi admits, ‘Food is still the biggest challenge in my life... it’s something that I’m constantly thinking about’
