Actress Demi Moore has been deeply affected by her husband Ashton Kutcherâ€™s cheating scandal, and is said to be starving herself in hopes of finally getting the attention she desperately seeks.
Since Ashton was caught in the hot tub with Sara Leal, a woman half her age (photos here), on the night of their sixth wedding anniversary, the 5-foot-5-inch actress, who allegedly weights only 90 pounds, has been basically surviving on cigarettes and energy drinks.
â€œDemi hasnâ€™t sat down and had an actual meal since this whole thing started,â€ the insider adds. â€œSheâ€™ll make a salad, and try to eat it, but sheâ€™ll wind up having a few bites and then putting it back in the fridge. When she does eat, itâ€™s some kind of sugary snack, like a cookie or something. Most of the time, sheâ€™s so sick to her stomach, the last thing sheâ€™s thinking about is food.â€
â€œSheâ€™s feeling really abandoned and what she needs more than anything is to feel loved,â€ one insider tells OK!. â€œBut it seems the only form that love is taking right now is sympathy â€” so Demi is kind of courting that. The fact that sheâ€™s so skinny has everyone clamoring around her and thatâ€™s the only comfort she has right now.â€
Even though she was advised to dump her husband, Demi continues to believe it is possible to save her marriage because she loves him. Ashton also seems prepared to fight for his marriage after he recently published a cryptic â€œmedia honestyâ€ video message (more details/video here) and sought counseling at the Kabbalah Center.
Demiâ€™s shocking weight loss is supposed to bring her some sort of comfort in the middle of this battle. â€œDemi gets morbid comfort from people feeling sorry for her,â€ a source tells OK!. â€œSheâ€™ll take whatever attention she can get right now â€” even pity.â€
