Demi Lovato has gone through some pretty difficult stuff in her life. Apparently she’s struggled with depression for a very long time — since the age of 7. (She’s also said she’s had body dysmorphia since age 3.) And here comes one of the more bizarre things I’ve ever heard of: her parents made her, at age 7, sign a contract that she would not kill herself. Um, what? From E Online:
The principal called my parents and made me sign this suicide contract saying that I would not kill myself. They weren’t expecting that so young.
[On going to rehab in 2010] My parents were like, ‘You have two choices. We can either shut it down and not talk about it, or you can tell people what’s up.’ There was no hesitation, really. I opened up that gate.
Good for her for speaking about it, because I think it helps a lot of people, especially young women, to hear that someone so famous and seemingly perfect has deep struggles of their own. Maybe she’ll reach out to Paris Jackson.
This contract though…I mean, what in the everloving hell?
