Nicole Scherzinger Reveals Struggle with Bulimia
Former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger admitted she has had body issues, including an eating disorder.
"I guess it was like my addiction, right?" the 34-year-old explained. "I never did drugs, but kinda doing things to myself was my addiction. It's like when I got offstage, I was on this high, and I'd come back to my room and I'd be alone, so I would just do things. My bulimia was my addiction. Hurting myself was my addiction."
She continued, "It's embarrassing. I never spoke about it… I really was so disgusted with myself," adding, "I hated myself.”
"Like I said, I never want to play a victim,” Nicole concluded, “and I never wanted my family to hear about things from me because I think it would break their heart, you know?"
Scherzinger exited the US version of “The X Factor” earlier this year and is now a judge on the UK edition.
