Demi Lovato had a “nervous breakdown”

Demi Lovato says she had a “nervous breakdown”.

The 18-year-old singer and actress, who recently left a treatment facility, recently revealed that she was treated for an eating disorder.

“I basically had a nervous breakdown,” Demi said. “I was really bad off. My parents and manager pulled me aside and said, ‘You need to get some help.’ It was an intervention. I wanted freedom from the inner demons. I wanted to start my life over.”

“I allow myself a lot of freedom and I’m very peaceful now,” she said.

“I have come to realize that just making yourself happy is most important. Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That’s my life motto.”
