Ke$ha checked into a suburban Chicago area rehab center early Friday, where reps for the outre star say she will receive treatment for an undisclosed eating disorder.
Ke$ha — who’s as popular for her L.A. partygirl persona as she is for her pop charttoppers — is reportedly being treated at the Timberline Knolls, the same facility where Demi Lovato was counseled for drug and alcohol addiction and bulimia in 2010.
In a revealing press statement issued this evening, Ke$ha, 26, explained her decision to seek help now:
“I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice. 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.”
