Demi Lovato Opens Up About Eating Disorder in Seventeen When Demi Lovato entered a rehab facility for unspecified "emotional and physical issues" in November 2010, many fans were left questioning what pushed the young star over the edge.

Now, in a candid interview with Seventeen, Lovato comes clean about the real reasons she reached out for help. Lovato admits that a fight with a dancer on her tour was only part of the problem, and that her battle with an eating disorder played a larger part in her decision to seek treatment.

"I don't think there's going to be a day when I don't think about food or my body, but I'm living with it, and I wish I could tell young girls to find their safe place and stay with it," says the actress.
