In a recent VH1 Behind the Music special, the former Pussycat Dolls' lead singer admits:

    "It's embarrassing. I never spoke about it. Like I said, I never want to play a victim, and I never wanted my family to hear about things from me because I think it would break their heart, you know. I guess it was like my addiction, right?

The Hawaiian-born songstress, who joined PCD in 2003, added:

    "I never did drugs, but kinda doing things to myself was my addiction. It's like when I got off stage, I was on this high, and I'd come back to my room and I'd be alone, so I would just do things. My bulimia was my addiction; hurting myself was my addiction."

Great to see that she overcame her struggles.
