Th 26-year-old singer has reportedly been struggling after her music producer, Dr. Luke, belittled her about her weight.
During the shooting of a music video in 2012, Luke told Ke$ha she “looks like a f***ing refrigerator”.
The producer, who has worked with Rihanna and Miley Cyrus, signed Ke$ha when she was 18-years-old.
Dr. Luke has nagged her about her weight since 2001, but his more recent remarks must have touched a nerve. She did lose weight and appeared more toned in the past few months.
An insider said, “With her, she is such the life of the party that people didn’t notice it and thought she was just getting in shape. And she would hide all the bad stuff from those that are close to her. Friends started seeing around Thanksgiving [held on November 28 in 2013] that something was wrong and started talking to her to get help. Thankfully, she took their advice and is getting the help she needs.”
On Friday, the Dirty Love singer entered rehab to receive treatment for her eating disorder.
Just before she was admitted to Timberline Knolls treatment facility near Chicago, she stated, “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice. I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder… to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am.”
Kesha is getting treatment at the same facility Demi Lovato was treated for her eating disorder and other issues in 2010.
