[Blind Gossip] This very popular young performer is so much fun! And so upbeat! At least, that’s the side you see. What you don’t see is her dark side. The one that causes her to hurt herself.
The good news is that there is an explanation, and that there are medications that can help her a lot. The bad news is that she refuses to take them because she doesn’t want to “lose her personality”. You see, she was recently diagnosed as having bipolar disorder, and she thinks that the medication will turn her into a zombie who can’t create or have fun or enjoy life.
She is already acting out in public, and her friends, family, and S.O. fear that she is heading toward a Britney-style meltdown. They really don’t want to have her committed or put her under a conservatorship, but if she continues to refuse, they may have to take drastic action. In the interim, she continues to take her body to extremes in public, and to self-harm by cutting and burning herself and pulling out small clumps of her hair in private. Not exactly a party.
