Lily Allen admits suffering body dysmorphia

December 11, 2009

Lily Allen has admitted that she’s suffering from body dysmorphia, a psychological disorder which leaves her preoccupied with her weight.

The singer has long struggled with her body image and she shocked fans in 2007 by discussing her fears over her shape on her online blog.

However, after embarking on a healthy eating and exercise regime, Allen now sports a svelte new figure.

And she has opened up about her battle with the bulge, admitting she suffers from a crippling condition, which affects the way she sees herself.

“(In the mirror I see) someone who is more overweight that they actually are. I”ve got a touch of (body) dysmorphia,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Q magazine.

However, the pop star is trying to overcome the disorder with help from her new boyfriend, Sam Cooper.

“I was sitting in bed last night and I caught sight of myself in the mirror. I said, ”God, that”s a funny looking thing.” My boyfriend said, ”You are, but in a very sweet and beautiful way.” That was smooth of him,” Allen said.
