Demi Lovato Speaks on Breakdown: Were Joe Jonas & Ashley Greene a Factor?
“I was completely out of line all summer,” Demi tells the magazine. “Just the worst attitude — totally ungrateful.” Was the attitude because she was on tour with ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas and his then girlfriend Ashley Greene?
At the age of nine is when Lovato recalls she began having issues with food that led to an eating disorder. By age 11, she was cutting herself, which was noticeable to the media on the carpet at Miley Cyrus’ sweet 16 party. She says about the reasoning for the cuts given at the time.
“I don’t think I would have been ready to talk about [my problems] then, but I could’ve come up with something better than gummy bracelets.”
The now infamous flight to Peru last year when Lovato walked up to her backup dancer, then friend Alex Welch, and socked her in the face was what really triggered Lovato to get help. “I just felt like she’d betrayed me,” Demi tells Elle. “That’s the bottom line…when you punch someone on a plane, enough is enough. Right after, I texted my mom and just said, ‘I’m sorry.’ ”
