Demi Lovato Calls Rehab “Prison”

Standard

In a brand new interview with TV host Katie Couric, Demi Lovato has compared her recent rehab experience to prison.

“What happened was I made a huge mistake and I ended up hitting one of my friends who was a back-up dancer. I felt horrible. I wasn’t really in control of my emotions at the time and I was just out of control and there’s no excuse for it but it definitely showed everyone I needed to get help and I think two days later I was checking into rehab. Treatment was so difficult at first, I remember walking around saying ‘I’m in prison!’ They needed to have those strict rules in order for me to understand how sick I was.”

“I wasn’t allowed to use the bathroom by myself. We had specific phone times. There are tons of things you weren’t allowed to have, you weren’t allowed to have certain hair products or whatever that you could injure yourself with or possibly drink and you were just stripped of a lot of things. I also had somebody watching over me every single time I ate. And if I didn’t finish what was on my plate, and often times I would cry because I physically couldn’t stomach it and if that happened I would have to have little consequences, nothing horrible just not being able to go to the cafeteria to eat.”
