More and more sad details about this young performer's body struggles keep coming to light! And most of them are coming from someone very close to home…
As Ke$ha is attempting to better herself in a treatment center for anorexia and bulimia, her momma, Pebe Sebert, is giving new info about how bad the singer's weight situation got before taking the steps toward rehab earlier this month.
Didn't Pebe check herself into rehab nearly two weeks ago?!
Apparently, she's doing interviews from her PTSD treatment facility now too!
The concerned mom is sharing new and intimate details behind her daughter's disorder, revealing:
"I've watched my beautiful, self-confident, brilliant daughter be berated and ridiculed for her looks and weight to the point that she almost died. The doctors told me her blood pressure and sodium levels were so low, they'd never seen it that low except with someone who'd had a heart attack or stroke. They said it was a miracle she hadn't already dropped dead on stage."
HOLY shizznit, that's scary stuff!
According to Pebe, the 26-year-old had been battling body issues since middle school - but they got progressively worse since becoming famous and involving herself with Dr. Luke and former manager David Sonenberg:
"One time on a conference call, Sonenberg was screaming, 'You need to lose weight! I don't care what you do … take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat!' Ke$ha was just weeping. She drove around afterward thinking about killing herself."
It was even explained how Ke$ha got really good about hiding her eating issues, and was able to conceal it quietly—until right before Christmas of this year:
"She called me and admitted how much she'd been throwing up, and I just said, 'Okay.' I called some centers and Ke$ha agreed to talk to them and liked what they said. She basically cried until we got there three days later."
This entire sitch is so sad!
We think both of these ladies need to take a break from the press and try to heal!
Get well soon, for realz! xx
