The singer’s mother opens up about her daughter’s condition:
Ke$ha started 2914 on another foot than most people. The singer announced at the beginning of January that she wants to be able to love herself again, for which reason she is entering rehab for 30 days. It hasn’t been that long, and her mother is already speaking to the press about the eating disorder her daughter is facing. Pebe Sebert, Ke$ha’s mom, also went to rehab after her daughter did, for post-traumatic stress disorder. “I’ve watched my beautiful, self-confident, brilliant daughter be berated and ridiculed for her looks and weight to the point that she almost died,” she told People Magazine. “One time on a conference call, [her former manager] was screaming, ‘You need to lose weight! I don’t care what you do … take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat!'”
Even though Ke$ha has had body issues ever since she was a teen, it’s when she launched into music that things started getting worse. The artist’s mom even claims her daughter had suicidal thoughts at a point. She blames producer Dr. Luke and her former manager, David Sonenberg, for her daughter’s bulimia, although both men denied the allegations. “I give Ke$ha my utmost support and well wishes for a quick return to health,” Dr. Luke stated.
Sebert says that all Ke$ha wants right now is to heal. “At this point, she doesn’t care if she ever makes a record again. She just wants to be healthy and happy,” she says. In just a few days, Ke$ha’s month in rehab should be over, and we hope the new beginning finds her well.
