Demi Lovato Opens Up About Drugs and Brutal Fights With Miley Cyrus

Demi Lovato has come full circle since going to rehab late 2010. And while we are super happy that she’s overcome her battles and has become an inspiration to many, we can’t help but wonder what exactly went on during those dark days. The 19-year-old former Disney starlet recently opened up to Seventeen magazine in a candid interview where she talked about the drug and alcohol abuse, the eating disorder as well as having some pretty nasty fights with BFF Miley Cyrus.

Demi told Seventeen:

I’m not gonna lie. I was self-medicating. I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain. [But now] I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t throw up after my meals, I don’t starve myself. There’s nothing that I do that I feel ashamed of.

There were two people [there for me]. No matter how many times we fight, we will always be in each others’ lives. [Miley and I] are very strong-headed, so when we fight, it’s brutal and we’re like, ‘We’re never going to be friends again!’ Then two days later, we’re like, ‘I love you and I miss you!’

Selena Gomez and I, we never fight. She’s not a confrontational person at all. Both of them will never leave my life no matter what happens, because we’ve been through so much together.

Whoa, that’s a lot to disclose Demi! So proud that she has risen above it all and turned her negative experience into a positive lifestyle.

Do you consider Demi Lovato an inspiration? If you could say anything to Demi about her experience, what would you say?
