Demi Rose is exploring “self love” in the tiniest swimsuit around. The 25-year-old model and social media sensation, backed by 14.2 million on Instagram, gets to call dibs on deserving a little self-love right now – Demi fronted media outlets this week for breaking down into tears on Instagram as she revealed childhood abuse, school bullying, and not always having “self-love.”
It was a different story by the time fans checked their feeds on Tuesday, though. Demi was back in her bathing suit and the bombshell body wasn’t hiding.
Scroll for the photos – comments suggested fans to be more than aware of the raw and emotional Instagram stories yesterday. Demi, currently soaking up the sun in Ibiza, Spain, had been shot by craggy rocks overlooking a Mediterranean Bay – eyes were likely on Rose herself, though.
Demi had a cheeky booty-flash going on as she posed looking jaw-dropping in a black, thin-strapped, and mesh swimsuit with a thong finish. Shades and a high-braided pony completed the look. A caption took it one step further, though.
Demi captioned her photo: “Self love is the real wave ? @prettylittlething.” The Fashion Nova partner who tends to stick to the brand that has sell-out collabs with rapper Cardi B does, occasionally, influence for competitor brand Pretty Little Thing.
Given that Demi had said: “Not everything is perfect all the time. Not always I have self love,” yesterday, it looks like the caption today was seeing Rose reflect. Demi is also continuing to mourn the loss of dad Barrie in 2018 – she lost both parents just eight months apart.
Demi, whose entire career revolves around her Insta-perfect account, also bravely revealed that for her, Instagram is “not reality.” The model was also flooded with support after candidly opening up on her youth – without mentioning that she once weighed only 80 pounds as she suffered from an eating disorder.
“From dealing with abuse as a child, to going through bullying at school, getting hurt by relationships that you never thought you would of and dealing with major grief, losing two people I loved the most,” she wrote, clearly referring to her deceased parents. Scroll for more photos.
Demi definitely comes with a fun side. The star celebrated turning 25 this year by pulling down her bikini top and throwing coronavirus the middle finger. The pandemic seeing Demi sick of all the “crochet bikini stuff” she couldn’t wear has, however, also come with more serious difficulties.
Demi was body-shamed earlier on in the pandemic as a troll wrote that she had gained “weight” in lock-down. Rose clapped back.
Demi’s post today clocked over 100,000 likes in just 45 minutes.
