Demi Lovato Scolded for Confessing She Had Suicidal Thoughts

Road to recovery The Texas native revealed that her suicidal thoughts were triggered by bullying

"I had this fascination with death", the singer tells Dr. Phil, in a clip obtained by Entertainment Tonight. "I have experienced things that I've not talked about and that I don't know if I ever will talk about". But at 7, I knew that if I were to take my own life, that the pain would end.

While Lovato has sought help for depression, addictions to drugs and alcohol, an eating disorder and bipolar disorder, she said those suicidal thoughts have crept back into her mind during hard moments.

The "Sorry Not Sorry" hitmaker said: 'It came back several times - when I was struggling with depression, my bipolar disorder. "Because every time I cut, it got deeper and deeper".

She also said that people made fun of her for being on Barney.

Nowadays, thankfully, the Sorry Not Sorry singer has a handle on her mental health and recently celebrated six years of being sober.

The singer said she has learned to overcome her substance addiction and deal with her bipolar disorder, but her battle with bulimia remains a constant struggle. "My eating disorder started when I was very young", the 25-year-old said. "And I believe that a lot of that had to do with unresolved issues with my birth father that I hadn't dealt with yet". She called it "the last thing to go" on the list of things that she wants to get control of as it haunts her every day.
