Sugababe blasts 'anorexic' rumours

Sugababes star Amelle Berrabah has admitted that she was furious over comments made about her size earlier this year.

The singer's weight dropped rapidly as she dealt with the aftermath of her boyfriend Freddie Fuller being attacked with a machete at the end of 2007. She did not manage to get back to her old size until well into the new year.

"I was going through a lot of stress - my boyfriend was attacked and nearly died - and the weight just fell off me," Amelle explained. "I had some horrible comments. People were saying, 'She's anorexic'. I just thought, 'You b*****ds, you don't know what I'm going through'. I almost lost a stone and I hated the way I looked.

"I had to eat like an animal to put the weight back on. I ate a hell of a lot of chocolate. But it wasn't enjoyable at all, I really had to force-feed myself. I just wanted my old self back."

The star is now believed to be considering paying for a boob job.
