“When I would ask them why [they’d tease me,] they would just say, ‘Well, you’re fat,” Lovato said. “I was bullied because I was too fat.

“A few months later I developed an eating disorder, and that’s kind of what I’ve been dealing with ever since.

“For the past 10 years, I’ve had a really unhealthy relationship with food.”

In the candid interview the pretty teen confessed that she has been compulsively overeating since the young age of eight.

Lovato also told Roberts she felt “horrible” after hitting a backup dancer during one of her low points.

The brunette dropped off her international concert tour with the Jonas Brothers last November to enter rehab for “emotional and physical issues,” according to her rep.
