Ke$ha checked herself into a rehabilitation center for an eating disorder last weekend, and now her mother is speaking out about her daughter’s suffering. She has some pretty major allegations about the people in Ke$ha’s life that led to her current condition.
Ke$ha’s mom Pebe Sebert told People that she blames the people around the singer, including frequent collaborator Dr. Luke, for pressuring her to lose weight. “Dr. Luke had been telling her how she had to get in shape and lose weight and all this stuff,” she said. “She was exercising and dieting and ultimately doing everything she could, but not getting thin fast enough. And that’s when she first became bulimic.” She went on to say that Luke told Ke$ha she looked like a “refrigerator.”
Dr. Luke has responded seriously to these allegations. His representative said to People in a statement, “These statements and allegations concerning Dr. Luke are completely false. It is unfortunate that at a time Ke$ha is suffering immensely and trying to heal at a treatment center, her mother is taking this approach with the media. I give Ke$ha my utmost support and well wishes for a quick return to health.” Still, so sad for all parties involved.
