Brandy: I had eating disorder

Brandy has admitted that she suffered from eating disorders when she was younger.

The 33-year-old was a breakout star in the 90s thanks to her hit songs and television show Moesha.

But the mother-of-one tells VH1's Behind the Music that she had body image issues.

"I wanted to be so thin," she said. "That was my main thing. So I started not taking care of myself - not eating properly, not eating at all, diet pills, regurgitating, and all of these things that girls do."

Brandy says that despite her success, she never felt like she was good enough.

"People don't understand that being the hottest star or making the most money does not mean anything," she shared.

"I'm here to tell you I was making so much money - I was omnipresent - and I was the unhappiest teenager probably in the world."

Brandy also spoke about splitting from Boyz II Men's Wanya Morris in 1997.

"He fell in love with someone else," she revealed. "The worst feeling is to be in love all by yourself. That feels f***ed up, honestly. It really does. It felt like somebody had just completely taken my heart out of my body and just crushed it."
