Demi Lovato Cutting Her Wrists?

- Disney darling Demi Lovato is showing disturbing new signs of cutting — a secretive self-mutilation ritual girls sometimes use to deal with traumatic emotional issues.

A little more than eight months after shocking pictures first revealed Demi's scarred wrists, new photos of the 16-year-old leaving MTV's NYC studios are even more alarming. There now appear to be at least five nasty-looking slashes, where previously there were only a few.

"Demi has been really stressed out about her new show, Sonny with a Chance," a source tells Star. "She's not getting enough downtime because there is so much work involved, and she's always being pulled in different directions."

Unfortunately, that constant pressure may lead to destructive behavior. "Cutting is how she can let go of the stress that has built up inside — when she cuts herself, it's a way to cope," explains Dr. Jennifer Austin Leigh, a San Francisco–based psychologist who specializes in treating teenagers.

    What. An. Idiot. She has SO MUCH in her life! She's starred in movies, she has her own TV show, her own music videos! Stressed out because of her show? Bull***! That is NO REASON to CUT! People have actual reasons to be suicidal and depressed, unlike this spoiled diva!

    look. all power to her from all that she has accomplished in her career and all. but i mean its like this whole thing with the miley pictures, kids look up to these girls. and i mean...sure, its gotta be hard on them. people copying their styles and catch phrases and having ppl look up to them all the time.. but isnt that what fame is all about? if she cant handle it. then i think either get some help. or step out of the line light.
    <3 your music dem, but, if its hurting you this bad... is it worth it?
  • hailz 2009/10/28 23:49:21

    I dunno if its true but i hope its not. I cut but i'm emo so who gives a fuck about me? But Demi, i don't think she does. Well at least i hope she doesn't. They might be like many people say, scars from her braclets. Or, she might be hiding the cuts with her braclets. I doubt it, though. fuck demi hope people scars braclets hiding cuts braclets doubt She always seems- or seemed so happy http://khairilhusni.blogmas.c... lovato-get-back.jpg i dunno why she would do it if she does http://3.bp.blogspot.com/__dM... /s320/Demi%2BLovato%2B-%2BGet... i highly doubt it. lovato-get-back jpg dunno http3 bp blogspot comdm s320demi2blovato2b-2bget highly doubt lovato-get-back jpg dunno http3 bp blogspot comdm s320demi2blovato2b-2bget highly doubt Shes just too happy and innocent. I highly highly highly doubt it

  • xXbubbl... dd 2009/12/20 20:08:47
    I agree. People cut for their own reasons, but someone only cares if it's a freaking movie star who does it......
  • Analise 2009/10/02 02:28:37
