In the wake of Ke$ha's admission into rehab, rumors about alcoholism and a potential drug problem are circulating. Her mom, Pebe Sebert, set the record straight in an interview with Celebuzz...
Ke$ha is bulimic. Not an alcoholic. Not a druggie.
"She [Ke$ha] was dieting and she became bulimic. I remember over a period of a few months she got really skinny and she said she was running Runyon Canyon and just eating well."
"The truth is she was throwing up. I didn’t know until much later because she said she would quit."
"I think it’s gotten worse recently because after the ‘refrigerator’ comment, which was about a year ago, I think it kicked into high gear."
Pebe, who struggled with alcoholism and drugs herself, has taught Ke$ha the dangers of addiction since she was a little girl. So where did these rumors come from? Pebe thinks Dr. Luke's camp.
“I would think it was Dr. Luke’s people trying to put that out because he’s been getting a lot of the blame for her eating disorder.” [a la 'refrigerator comment']
Pebe also bashed these rumors via Twitter...
Seems some "Close Source"(LIAR) is trying to possibly shift the blame off the truth. Kesha is in an EATING DISORDER CENTER.— keshas mom (@grannywrapper) January 8, 2014
The important thing is that Ke$ha gets the help she needs. We support Ke$ha and wish her a speedy recovery.
