While appearing at The Doctors, Chloe openly talked about her battle with drugs, eating disorders, and body dysmorphia. Despite all life difficulties, she managed to find the love of her life and to become happy again.

Chloe said everything started when her parents divorced. During that period, she started to eat all the time to comfort herself, and after some time saw comments in newspapers and magazines about how chubby she was.

When Chloe was only 16, she began to restrict food, which led to anorexia and depression. It was indeed a dark period for Chloe, and she also started using drugs and alcohol.

She looked ill and ridiculous, and it was obvious something has to be changed. During the darkest time of her life, Chloe met the love of her life, who always supported her.

Chloe has once said her mother’s love healed her:

I hated that my life was broadcast all over the world. It was horrifying to me. For my mum, it was also a terribly hard time. She felt powerless and didn't know what to do. We were just talking about it and she said to me, "I did everything I could. I sent you to every specialist, every person I thought might be able to help." I told her, "You know Mum, all I really needed was you." She looked at me and finally realised the power she has – that her love is the most powerful healing tool in the world.
