Teen Disney Star Demi Lovato has checked herself into rehab on Monday night, to treat an eating disorder and self-harm. “Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help,” said a statement from her representatives. “She is doing just that. Demi and her family ask that the media respect her privacy during this difficult time.”
A source who wished to remain anonymous told The Associated Press that Lovato has struggled with cutting herself and unhealthy eating habits for some time. She was once the victim of bullying, which became so bad that she was forced to leave her middle school. “It was more verbal harassment than physical abuse, but that’s actually more scarring than anything,” Demi said in a 2009 interview. “And I had to leave because I just couldn’t deal with it. And I’ve home-schooled ever since.”
Demi appeared in the movie Camp Rock, and also stars on the sitcom Sonny with a Chance. She has also release several records. According to her representation, Demi is “is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future.”
