Child Star Madison De La Garza Recalls Eating Disorder at Age 7

Madison, who is Demi Lovato‘s half-sister, recalled times she starved herself and endured “months of struggling with a binge-eating disorder.”

Now, the Pink Elephant director says she is about two years into recovery. However, she feels it is a life-long process.

“I don’t think it’s something that will ever be completely gone or it will ever completely be fixed,” she said. “It’s something that you have to continue to work on for the rest of your life. It does get easier, of course, but it will always be there.”

Looking back on working with her Desperate Housewives co-stars while receiving such hate, Madison shared that she and Eva never spoke out the online comments together.

“We never explicitly talked about it, but she definitely went out of her way to make me feel like I was pretty and like I was special,” Madison said. “And she made me feel like I was family. And if I ever did want to go to her with these things, I absolutely could have.”
