Popstar Ke$ha reportedly checked into a Chicago-based rehab centre yesterday for treatment of an eating disorder.
The 26-year-old singer and rapper told TMZ that she will be staying at the Timberline Knolls centre for the next month with a goal to ’learn to love myself again, exactly as I am.’
“I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice,” Ke$ha said. “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.”
Vegetarian Ke$ha has checked into the same facility that 21-year-old Demi Lovato was admitted to in 2010, also for an eating disorder.
The Tik Tok singer’s announcement follows the release of her self-directed video for “Dirty Love” on January 1.
In the video, Ke$ha strips down and bares her bottom and breasts to the camera as she writhes around on the floor.
