Mom ‘Ke$ha Almost Died From Anorexia’

kesha-die-youngKe$ha is currently in rehab battling anorexia and bulimia, her mom Pebe Sebert told People that she was bullied into it: ‘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.

The doctors told me her blood pressure and sodium levels were so low, they’d never seen it that low except with someone who’d had a heart attack or stroke. They said it was a miracle she hadn’t already dropped dead on stage.’

According to Sebert, Ke$ha, 26, had been battling body issues since middle school, but they’d progressively gotten worse since she signed with longtime producer Dr. Luke and former manager David Sonenberg, when she was just 18.

‘One time on a conference call, Sonenberg was screaming, ‘You need to lose weight! I don’t care what you do.. take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat! Ke$ha was just weeping. She drove around afterward thinking about killing herself.

Dr. Luke has just always been very disrespectful about her weight. He’d say it in certain ways, like ‘Why don’t you try running?’ She was doing everything and not getting thin fast enough, and that’s when she first became bulimic.;

Dr. Luke: ‘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.’

Someone would usually follow her into the bathroom after she ate: ‘But she could throw up really quickly and quietly. She’d even take a bag in there so no one could see her bent over the toilet. She was really sneaky.’

The final straw came right before Christmas, when Ke$ha pulled over at a gas station to throw up after a dinner party: ‘She called me and admitted how much she’d been throwing up, and I just said, ‘Okay.’

I called some centers and Ke$ha agreed to talk to them and liked what they said. She basically cried until we got there three days later. At this point, she doesn’t care if she ever makes a record again. She just wants to be healthy and happy.’

    People like him should be locked up in jail. If the girl would’ve died, it was his fault..
    I remember just a few weeks before she went to rehab that she talked about her weight loss and she said she was just eating healthy and exercising, poor girl.
    I wish her all the best.

    This is heartbreaking to imagine anyone going through this is awful. Demi probably went through the same shit, minus the managerial pressure. I hope she makes a comeback and learns to be happy.

    I agree with @laura people who do this should get jail time. They are very much to blame for her condition. Can’t you goto jail for physical/verbal/sexual abuse in the workplace? That manager was SO out of line.

    That’s Hollywood and she is not the only one who has to deal with this daily.

    This makes me so sad. Why Ke$ha out of all people? She’s so nice and she just wants to do what she loves and inspire people to be themselves.

      It’s funny you say that, but I actually thought she was an attention whore & such a slut (those cumshot photos lol). But after Ive seen this whole thing unfold and what her mom has to say, I’m starting to see that it’s just her manager & team that are poisoning her to think she was not good enough and be this person that she is not. As a result, it caused her to be such an attention whore/etcetc and make all her bad decisions. Knowing that, I think that this breakdown is good for her, to realize what really matters to her and to become a better person, and preach love & truly inspire ppl. Kesha was a VERY talented songwriter even BEFORE she started her own career. She wrote hits for Britney & etc.

        I remember on her mtv show she had a breakdown right before a performance on live tv because Perez leaked those pictures. It’s not something out of this world to take pictures like that or make sextapes and stuff like that, many couples do stuff and like to film it for some reason lol. Somehow Perez had that picture and leaked it, he’s been trying to ruin her ever since she started. Why? Just because she doesn’t like her. I know many people see her as cokewhore who just parties and is drunk all the time because, to be honest, that’s what she looked like AT THE BEGGINING of her career. But she had been doing so much better, she actually had a message in her music and honestly, she inspired me not to give a fuck about what anyone has to say about me, i told her about when i came out and she hugged me and told i had to be myself always and she was so nice. That’s why i feel so protective of her when someone’s trashing her. I just hope she’s feeling better and can get through this.
