It’s been a little over a year since Patricia Sebert, mother of chart-topping songstress Ke$ha, made headlines for sharing her grievances about the industry she feels has had its fair share of detrimental effects on her diva daughter.
After claiming the Illuminati forced her daughter to sing ‘Die Young’, now mama Sebert is back to slam the industry for the ‘Warrior’ wailer’s highly publicized battle with bulimia – a battle that saw her enter rehab at the top of the year.
With her sights set on Ke$ha’s hit-making producer Dr. Luke, see what Sebert alleges about the industry’s toll and Dr. Luke’s direct effect below. The quotes gained so much traction, Dr. Luke lent an official statement in response:
Patricia Sebert (Ke$ha’s mother) via People magazine:
“Dr. Luke had been telling her how she had to get in shape and lose weight and all this stuff. She was exercising and dieting and ultimately doing everything she could, but not getting thin fast enough,” says Sebert. “And that’s when she first became bulimic.”
“Dr. Luke told a friend of ours he thought she looked like a refrigerator on her latest video, and could she please try to control her weight,” Ke$ha’s mom adds. “After she went on a 14-day juice cleanse, he said, ‘Thank God you finally got rid of the weight! We’ve all been talking about it!’ So she felt like she couldn’t trust anyone.”
“Right before Christmas she had a breakdown, and called me from the gas station after she’d thrown up everything, and admitted how much she’d been doing it.”
Dr. Luke responds:
“These statements and allegations concerning Dr. Luke are completely false,” his reps say in a statement issued. “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.”
