Former “Sonny With A Chance” star Demi Lovato opens up about her problems with violence, cutting herself, eating disorders and bipolar disorder in the latest issue of Elle Magazine. After getting out of rehab, she is now ready to talk openly about her problems and how her romantic relationship with Joe Jonas contributed to her fall.
Demi Lovato has been romantically linked to Joe Jonas until May 2010. A few months after, when Joe was already in another relationship, she attacked a member of the dance crew of the Jonas Brothers. The incident led to committing her in a facility for rehab. This was the last incident in her life, but not the first. Back in 2008, Demi appeared on the red carpet at Miley Cirus’s birthday party with noticeable signs on her wrists. The media speculated it was from self injuring, but her publicist at the time said that it was false and that the Disney star had those marks from some gummy bracelets. Now, six months after leaving the rehab facility, Demi says that she was not ready to talk about her real problems 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”, she told the magazine and added that the publicist was fired soon after. “Needless to say, that publicist is no longer with us … I mean, she’s alive”.
When talking about the impact that the split from Joe Jonas had on her life, she says that it had little to do with her problems. “I wouldn’t credit my meltdown to a guy”, she says about her ex who was dating “Twilight” actress Ashley Greene at the time. “There was so much other stuff in my life.” But the actress-singer admits that they had no contact since she went into rehab.
Demi Lovato’s career is getting back on track. Her latest single, “Skyscraper”, a depiction of the troubled times she has had lately, already topped the iTunes chart.
