Coco has some of the most talked-about curves in Hollywood, and she proudly flaunts them in barely legal bikinis – but the buxom blonde wasn’t always happy with her assets. 

In a shocking new interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine, the bodacious Ice Loves Coco star reveals that she struggled with an eating disorder in her late teens after being called fat by a photo shoot director – and RadarOnline.com has the details.

"When I was 18, the J. Lo butt was not in. To have a booty was not the thing. You were considered fat if you had a booty.  I was being cast in stuff where you'll see all these really beanpole-looking white girls with blond hair and big boobs. That's what I wanted to be,” she explains to the women’s magazine.

“I was pulled aside during a photo shoot and a director told me that I needed to lose weight - that I was getting fat.”

After being criticized for her curves, the heavily endowed star took to drastic dietary measures.

"When I heard that I went into full craziness,” she shares. “I went and tried everything from diet pills to cleansing to everything you could possibly do to get rid of your butt. Bulimia - I tried that but I love my food too much."

Luckily, Coco and her curves survived the eating disorder ordeal, thanks to her hip-hop hubby Ice-T, who helped her appreciate her awesome assets!

"I told her, 'You got a little waist and a nice, round butt.' I said, 'That's what's unique about you. The boobs - anybody can go buy them,’" Ice-T chimed in.
