Disney Star Demi Lovato has checked herself into rehab. Not for drugs or alcohol but rather for “emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time.”One big Demi rumor that has swirled around for years has not come back into the forefront, that Demi Lovato was and is a cutter. Is that what led to her checking into rehab for help?
Cutting, the act of self mutilation, is often seen as a cry for help. One that is a outward sign of anxiety, depression, or borderline personality disorder. For the last two years there had been word that Demi was a cutter. There were photos of Demi on the red carpet with what looked like cutting marks and her publicist went on the defense saying, “Demi was wearing gummy bracelets just prior to her appearance on the red carpet and, because of how tight they were, they left indentations on her wrist,” she said. “These allegations are completely false.”
A source who is close to Demi’s family stated to People that, “she was bullied in school. She fought through eating disorders and has struggled with cutting. Demi is taking control by getting help.”
And she is getting the help she needs, a brave and wise first step.
“She is doing just that. Demi and her family ask that the media please respect their privacy during this difficult time. She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future.”
