In the upcoming issue of Cosmopolitan, Ashlee Simpson admits she battled anorexia when she was younger. “When I went to ballet school, I was around a lot of girls with eating disorders, and I actually had a minor one myself,” the singer said. “It was about six months of not eating too much at all. I was 11 and 5 feet 2 and about 70 pounds.” But she says it was her family’s help and support that pulled her out of it. “My parents stepped in and made me eat,” she says. “That really helped a lot.”
