"A dance injury, a toxic friend group, and a romantic relationship with someone who treated her poorly," was the explanation.
At some point, she even engaged in "self-injurious" behaviour, but she didn't discuss that any further. "When people ask me what I’d say to somebody looking for advice on mental health, the only thing I can say is patience," she said, explaining how she got through it all. "I had patience with myself. I didn’t take that last step. I waited. Things fade."
Billie's private life is a mystery to the world, but this isn't the first time she has opened up with snippets about herself. The singer has previously opened up about how her "body dysmorphia" issues also led to her mental health problems.
