London: Singer-actress Demi Lovato has revealed her parents staged an intervention after she had a nervous breakdown last year.

The 18-year-old, who left an unnamed Chicago-based facility in January after being admitted in November, has already revealed she was treated for an eating disorder in the clinic and she has now admitted her parents were so worried about her mental health they staged an intervention to make her confront her problems, reports contactmusic.com.

"I basically had a nervous breakdown. My parents and manager pulled me aside and said, `You need to get some help.` It was an intervention. I wanted freedom from the inner demons. I wanted to start my life over," she said..

"I allow myself a lot of freedom and I`m very peaceful now. I have come to realise that just making yourself happy is most important. Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That`s my life motto," she added.
