star Dolores O'Riordan
suffered a nervous breakdown and anorexia because the band was so successful. The singer says she couldn't eat or sleep when the Irish rockers reached the height of fame more than a decade ago.
She says, "I honestly think that it was beyond anorexia - it was bigger than that. I was having a nervous breakdown. Losing lots of weight.
"I wasn't sleeping, I couldn't eat. I was suffering an awful lot from out-of-control anxiety attacks. I just couldn't control my motor skills - I was panicking too much to move my limbs.
"So I went to see the psychiatrist and he just said it was too much stress."
O'Riordan left the band after suffering a breakdown in 2003.
