Camila Cabello Reacts to Jesy Nelson's Documentary: I Felt Her Pain

Recalling her own experiences with negative comments, the 'Senorita' hitmaker admits she decided to never search her name online again after learning how they affected how she acted in daily life.

AceShowbiz - Camila Cabello was left in tears watching Jesy Nelson open up about her struggles with mental health in her candid BBC documentary.

The Little Mix singer revealed she took an overdose of pills as online bullying took its toll, two years after her group's rise to fame on "The X Factor" in 2011, in "Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out". The powerful programme has since been named the BBC's most viewed this year among the age 16 to 34 demographic.

The moving film has touched fans and stars alike, with former Fifth Harmony singer Camila the latest big name to confess it "made such a big impression" - because she too has had a tough time with some of the negative aspects of fame.

"Not to that point but I definitely felt the depths of struggling, and when I heard that, I just really felt what she (Jesy) was saying," she told Britain's The Sun newspaper. "I felt her pain, and for somebody to rise out of that place takes so much strength."

The "Senorita" singer admitted social media trolls took a toll during her time on "The X Factor (US)", recalling she once searched her name online and stumbled upon lots of negative comments.

" 'Oh, she's so annoying in an interview,' 'She tries so hard,' 'Eurgh, her voice is so whiny,' " she shared, recalling some of the comments. "I remember that affecting how I acted in day-to-day life. So I decided I'm never doing it again."

And though she does post on Instagram now, Camila confessed she's completely ditched the one part of social media she thinks had the most negative effect on her mental health, explaining: "I don't go on Twitter at all. Twitter is f**king terrible."

"I'm mostly on Instagram because I want to interact with my fans. But I just felt an hour ago, 'Eurgh, I wanna delete this app,' " the star continued. "You get sucked back into it again and it takes you away from real life... It messes with your head so much. I think it's so important for people to be aware of that."
