Disney star Demi Lovato opened up about her decade-long eating disorder on Good Morning America Wednesday.

Lovato, 18, told Robin Roberts she developed emotional scars after enduring vicious taunting from school classmates, who bullied her because she was “too fat.”

"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.

More of the interview will air on GMA later this week, and in it’s entirety on 20/20 Friday on ABC at 10/9c.
