Ke$sha's Mom: My Daughter is Bulimic and her Producer is a Bully

January 16, 2014 2 min read

In an interview done with People, Pebe Sebert, Ke$sha's mother, came out to talk about her daughter's trip to rehab in early January and the pressure that led her there.  Pebe came out railing against Dr. Luke, Ke$sha's producer, and his tactics that lead her to become bulimic.

She was quoted as saying, "Dr. Luke told a friend of ours he thought she looked like a refrigerator on her latest video, and could she please try to control her weight," Ke$ha's mom adds. "After she went on a 14-day juice cleanse, he said, 'Thank God you finally got rid of the weight! We've all been talking about it!' So she felt like she couldn't trust anyone."

The producer of course denied these claims saying that he was in full support of the pop star and thought it unfortunate that her mother was taking this approach with the media.  It becomes a he said/she said argument, although the mother has nothing to lose by being upfront about Dr. Luke's treatment of Ke$sha.

At the center of this media storm is a young 26-year-old woman who has found the spotlight to be much harder to deal with.  It's a terrible ordeal for anyone to go through much less in the midst of a media circus.  Perhaps though Ke$sha's struggles will shed light on eating disorders and the pressure that young women and young girls face in an effort to be slim.  While it is terrible to watch a young woman deal with this, it is also incredibly beneficial to break the misconception that every celebrity has a magically perfect body.  There is no magic pill there.  Mostly there is a lot of hard work and in some cases there is also an eating disorder.

Here's Ke$sha's statement upon entering rehab: "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."
