That time she was part of “that Disney crowd” that had publicly stated they were waiting until marriage. Lovato added that the person that assaulted her never got in trouble for it and that she “had to see this person all the time so I stopped eating and coped in other ways.” Speaking about the person that assaulted her, she added that “They never got taken out of the movie they were in.”

Lovato stated that “I always kept it quiet because I've always had something to say. I don't know, I'm tired of opening my mouth.”
