The 26-year-old Tik Tok singer, Ke$ha, whose real name is Kesha Rose Sebert, has checked into a rehabilitation facility to treat an undisclosed eating disorder.

While there were no details about her condition, the pop star did confirm the report in a statement to People magazine. “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself but I’ve found it hard to practice," she 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.”

The singer is seeking treatment at Timberline Knolls outside Chicago, the same facility that helped Disney star Demi Lovato return to sobriety. Meanwhile, reports following the breaking news surfaced that a long-standing feud between Ke$ha and producer Dr. Luke led to her downfall. According to Perez Hilton, she sought Dr. Luke’s help with losing weight at the end of her Get Sleazy tour in 2011, but he allegedly criticized the singer for her weight by calling her a “fucking refrigerator.”

But the singer has battled weight issues throughout her life. Back in January, she told Seventeen about the struggles she endured early in her career. "I remember every person who told me I couldn't do something or that I was ugly or too fat," she said. "People in the music business were like, 'You're never going to make it.' I see them now and I'm like, 'Ha!'”
