Kesha’s mother Pepe Sebert has opened up about her daughter’s eating disorder which almost killed her.
The singer has checked into rehab to receive treatment for anorexia and bulimia after she “almost died” from the disorder, according to her mother. Sebert said that her daughter struggled with body image issues in school and her insecurities only got worse when she signed with producer Dr. Luke and former manager David Sonenberg.
Sebert said that Sonenberg once told her to lose weight during a conference call. “I don’t care what you do… Take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat,” he said, according to Sebert.
Kesha is now focused on her recovery and happiness over her career.
