Los Angeles: Singer Nicole Scherzinger says she fought with bulimia, but never shared her problem with anyone.

"I`d come back to my room and I`d be alone, so I would just do things. My bulimia was my addiction. Hurting myself was my addiction," Scherzinger said on a show.

The 34-year-old never shared her problems with anyone because she never wanted to portray herself as a victim, reports

"I never spoke about it. Like I said, I never want to play a victim, and I never wanted my family to hear about things from me because I think it would break their heart, you know," she said the singer, currently seen as a judge on British version of ‘The X Factor’.
