Ke$ha’s Mother Joins Her Daughter in Rehab
Ke$ha’s struggle with an eating disorder has taken its toll not only on the singer but her immediate family as well. The singer’s mother has apparently checked herself into rehab in an attempt to deal with stress. And strangely enough, she has chosen to enter the same facility as her daughter.
57-year-old Pebe Sebert told People that she is checking into Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center today “for post-traumatic stress disorder, at Ke$ha’s urging.” She went on to say, “This whole Dr. Luke thing has almost torn our family apart and taken over my life, and Ke$ha wants me to heal along with her.”
Dr. Luke signed Ke$ha in 2005 and has been accused by Sebert of saying some really terrible things to the singer, including calling the 26-year-old a “refrigerator” and pressuring her to lose weight. In response to Sebert’s claims, the producer released a statement to People saying that the allegations against him “are completely false.”
We reached out to Timberline this afternoon in the hopes to find out how a rehab facility would go about treating two family members at the same time, but that request for comment has yet to be returned.
Ke$ha entered rehab on Jan. 3, revealing she is “seeking treatment for my eating disorder … to learn to love myself again. Exactly as I am.”
