Demi Lovato is leaving Sonny With a Chance, the show that’s made her a star on the Disney Channel. She’ll instead focus on her pop career – and recovery.
Given the actress sought treatment recently for “physical and emotional issues,” and confessed to cutting herself since age 11, a change might do her good.

We’ve known Demi Lovato is a “cutter,” but the recent revelation that she began to slit her wrists and mutilate herself at age 11 is startling.
Now 18, Demi opened up to 20/20 about her recent stint in a treatment center, where she was treated for cutting, bulimia and emotional issues.

But this aspiring artist says that’s nothing compared to the personal attacks she’s received since the video made her into a celebrity.
“At times, it feels like I’m being cyberbullied,” Black tells The Daily Beast, saying she was sent messages that read: “‘I hope you cut yourself, and I hope you’ll get an eating disorder so you’ll look pretty.’”

The latter event, the second for the young singer, took place in the fall of last year and Allen says of dealing with the repercussions: “It was a really long battle. I think that kind of thing changes a person.”

Ali Fedotowsky wants to “crash diet” after gaining a staggering 15 pounds during and after filming The Bachelorette, according to the new issue of Us Weekly.
