She's got a body that make the majority of womankind very jealous. However X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger has admitted in a candid interview that she used to suffer from the eating disorder, bulimia, claiming that it was her "addiction."

Making the revelation in an interview for VH1's Behind The Music feature, Entertainment Weekly reports the star, who can be seen on the X Factor UK panel alongside Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh, confessing that her battle with bulimia started during her time with the Pussycat Dolls:

"I just hated myself. I hated myself. I really was so disgusted with myself and so embarrassed. I felt so alone. I was in a group, and I never felt so alone in my life.”

Explaining the difficulty in speaking speaking in an interview about it, the former Pussycat Doll added: "Yeah, I’m nervous about it. It’s embarrassing. 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. I guess it was like my addiction, right?

"I never did drugs, but kinda doing things to myself was my addiction. It’s like when I got off stage, I was on this high, and 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.”

Recalling how bulimia affected her day to day life,  the star confessed:

"I did it everyday for, like, years. Every time I had a second to be alone, I was doing something to myself. You get, like, blisters on your hands or scars on your hands, and I’d try to hide those. I think the girls could tell.”

Thankfully Nicole is now healthy and looking amazing!
