She’s got multiple hits under her belt since releasing her debut album Don’t Forget in 2008.

Last week, Demi revealed she still struggles ‘daily’ with her eating disorder just weeks after her now infamous social media feud with an Los Angeles frozen yogurt shop The Bigg Chill. 

The singer took to her Instagram on Wednesday to post a mug she had made from Color Me Mine with a lengthy caption which detailed her struggles in recovering from her eating disorder.

The pink mug had ‘I am worth it’ emblazoned on it as she turned it to show off the logo painted on the side which is the logo for the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).

She explained to her 103million followers: ‘Even though I was in the throes of my eating disorder, I still made this in hopes that I would truly believe it some day.

‘I still struggle. Daily. There are periods of time where I forget about my food struggles and other times it’s all I think about. Still. 

‘But that is what ED recovery looks like for some people and I still have hope that someday I won’t think about it anymore. For now my mug reminds me that I am worth it, and today I believe it.’

Lovato was recently at the centre of controversy as she made thinly-veiled threats to LA yogurt shop The Bigg Chill via a series of private direct messages that surfaced last month, while publicly attempting to issue a half-apology for her actions on Instagram. 

In her original post, she penned: ‘Finding it extremely hard to order froyo from [The Bigg Chill] when you have to walk past tons of sugar-free cookies/other diet foods before you get to the counter’, before adding the hashtag ‘Do Better’.

The store, situated on Olympic Blvd, is owned by Diane Dinow and her daughter Cary Russell, who revealed in 2011 that they average 1,000 customers a day in the week and up to 1,300 at the weekends.

Demi accused the the shop of ‘harmful messaging from brands or companies that perpetuate a society that not only enables but praises disordered eating.’

The company responded to Lovato: 'We are not diet vultures. We cater to all of our customers needs for the past 36 years. We are sorry you found this offensive'

The establishment responded to the Sorry Not Sorry songstress in a direct message, which she subsequently posted online.

Lovato responded: ‘Not just that. Your service was terrible. So rude. The whole experience was triggering and awful.’

She advised the business: ‘You can carry things for other people while also carrying for another percentage of your customers who struggle DAILY just to even step foot in your store…

‘You can find a way to provide an environment for all people with different needs. Including eating disorders – one of the deadliest mental illness only second to [opioid] overdoses. Don’t make excuses, just do better.’

The What Other People Say artist then advised the business on different ways it could improve on the issue.

She penned: ‘I was thinking, maybe it would help if you made it more clear that the sugar free options and vegan options are for that. Labeling the snacks for celiac or diabetes or vegans. 

‘When it’s not super clear, the messaging gets confusing and being in LA it’s really hard to distinguish diet culture vs health needs…

‘I think clear messaging would be more beneficial for everyone. You aren’t wrong for catering to many different needs but it’s not about excluding one demographic to cater to others.’

The singer then posted a response to the controversy in an eight-and-half minute video, where she explained why she was ‘triggered’ by sugar-free items sold at the small business, and claimed she would ‘work with them’ on ‘doing better.’

However, leaked direct messages allegedly written by the singer, published by TMZ, paint a different story, as Demi warned The Bigg Chill, ‘you don’t want to mess with me’ and advised them to stop trying to fight back against her arguments.

The singer allegedly wrote in the messages: ‘Don’t keep going with this. You don’t want to mess with me. You’re in the wrong and the customer is always right. You already know this, listen to your customer and do better’. 

The direct messages are in stark contrast to the half-apology video issued days after the controversy began, in which she rambled for nearly 10 minutes at the camera. 

She said: ‘I will do whatever I can to work with this fro-yo shop, if they want to, to help align the messaging so I can feel safe in there and I can eat the fro-yo that I went in there for.’

‘People with eating disorders should feel safe wherever they want to go and eat,’ she added, who had claimed she she felt ‘triggered’ by the sugar-free options.

In her lengthy video, Demi also said she hoped she had now opened up a dialogue with The Bigg Chill, and said she was taking it upon herself to change America and the world to help those with eating disorders.

In March, she told CBS Sunday Morning that ongoing eating disorder-linked behavior played a role ahead of her overdose in 2018.

‘I didn’t control any of my life at that period of time,’ she said, adding that ‘every time I was in a hotel room my phone was taken out of the room so I couldn’t order room service.’

She elaborated on the topic in February with Ashley Graham on her podcast Pretty Big Deal, saying, ‘I’m tired of running myself into the ground with workouts and extreme dieting.

‘I thought the past few years was recovery from an eating disorder when it actually was just completely falling into it. And I just realized that maybe my symptoms weren’t as obvious as before, but it was definitely an eating issue.’
