Ke$ha wanted to kill herself over the weight criticism and bullying she allegedly suffered at the hands of her producer, this according to her mother.
Pebe Sebert tells People, ‘One time on a conference call, [former manager] Sonenberg was screaming, “You need to lose weight! I don’t care what you do … take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat!” Ke$ha was just weeping. She drove around afterward thinking about killing herself.’
As ENTmania! previously reported, Ke$ha also blames high-profile producer Dr Luke for her woes that sent her to rehab for eating disorder.
‘He has just always been very disrespectful about her weight,’ Sebert says of Dr Luke. ‘He’d say it in certain ways, like “Why don’t you try running?” She was doing everything and not getting thin fast enough, and that’s when she first became bulimic.’
Sebert says Ke$ha’s health condition deteriorated so badly last fall that all that remained was for her to drop dead on stage.
‘The doctors told me her blood pressure and sodium levels were so low, they’d never seen it that low except with someone who’d had a heart attack or stroke. They said it was a miracle she hadn’t already dropped dead on stage. Sebert claims. ‘I’ve watched my beautiful, self-confident, brilliant daughter be berated and ridiculed for her looks and weight to the point that she almost died.’
Sebert herself has checked into the same rehab center as her daughter, citing post traumatic stress disorder as the reason.
Both Sonenberg and Dr Luke have denied the accusations with the latter saying in a statement, ‘It is unfortunate that at a time Ke$ha is suffering immensely and trying to heal at a treatment center, her mother is taking this approach with the media. I give Ke$ha my utmost support and well wishes for a quick return to health.’
