Demi Lovato Reveals She Virtually ‘Gave Up’ And Relapsed Upon Studying Article That Known as Her ‘Morbidly Overweight’ After Rehab
During a new interview, the star spoke about the reason she wanted to go back to drugs right after her rehab stay in 2018. It turned out that Demi Lovato lost all her resolve when she read a headline that went as far as to call her “morbidly obese”.
As fans know, Demi was in rehab for months after the drug overdose that nearly killed her and kept her in the hospital for two weeks.

But even after such a frightening and worrying experience, Demi admits that she still wanted to use the harmful substances, all based on public judgment.
During an interview for PAPER Magazine, Demi recalled, “I think it was right after I got out of rehab in 2018. I saw an article that said I was morbidly obese. And that’s the single most triggering thing you could possibly write about someone with an eating disorder. That sucked and I wanted to quit, I wanted to use it, I wanted to give up. ‘
This was discussed while Demi explained the reason she stopped reading news articles about her.

“And then I realized that if I didn’t look at these things, they couldn’t influence me. So I stopped looking and I’m really trying not to look negative. I think the positives outweigh the negatives. I think if they didn’t I wouldn’t. ‘
It makes sense that the artist was so struck by this article criticizing her weight.
After all, she was fairly open to problems with an eating disorder.
While she has come a long way and recovered, Demi has previously admitted for the same news agency that she has struggled with body image issues and extreme dieting.
