Ke$ha’s Mom Speaks Out About Eating DisorderBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - January 21, 2014
Ke$ha recently entered rehab for an eating disorder that many people believe was caused by her producer Dr. Luke, who allegedy bullied Kesha for her weight and constantly made her feel that she needed to lose more.
Ke$ha’s mom recently spoke out about her daughter’s eating disorder and said that before she decided to get help, Ke$ha had let her anorexia and bulimia get so bad that it almost killed her. Her mother explained how hard it was to watch her daughter battle her eating disorder and said,
“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 added, “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.”
Ke$ha appeared to be a strong young woman, but her mother claims that her insecurity and eating disorder began in high school and got worse after she became famous.
Her mother said that she is not sure what Ke$ha will do when she leaves rehab, but knows that she is currently only worried about getting healthy.
Eating disorders are common in many young woman and several celebrities have completed stints in rehab for similar problems. Demi Lovato and Amanda Bynes were both recently treated and have since been released from the facilities.
Ke$ha should be released from the facility sometime early next month, unless she decides to stay longer.
Do you think Ke$ha will get the help she needs in rehab?
