From “Timber” to time-out?
It has been confirmed thatKe$ha has been checked into to a rehabilitation facility due to an eating disorder. Sources close to the pop star say that she is currently at Timberline Knolls near Chicago, the same place Demi Lovato checked into for a year when she was in the midst of battling her own personal issues.
“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,” the 26-year-old singer shared with TMZ about her decision to check herself into the center.
Friends of the star say that the tipping point was around Thanksgiving when they started to notice her smaller figure during the holiday season. They all spoke with her about it and that’s when it all came out. Those friends reportedly told TMZ that the star blamed longtime producer, Dr. Luke for her eating disorder.
According to them, following her “Get Sleazy” Tour, the producer kept harping her about the weight she had gained during her downtime from the studio and tour. He began to call her fat and urged her management team to do something about it. Those friends say that things started to get worse during a music video shoot where the producer said the singer “looks like a f***ing refrigerator.”
Here’s to hoping that she gets better fast because who doesn’t love our favorite garbage-bag-wearing, glitter-throwing party girl.
