News came down this week that Kesha was in rehab for treatment of an eating disorder. Now we're learning more about how she got there.

Kesha had been looking very thin lately and nobody knew why, except her closest friends who encouraged the singer to get help. The pop star released a statement saying she "is a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice." She adds she'll be "unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder...to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am."

Friends of the singer started seeing something was wrong around Thanksgiving and encouraged Kesha to get help. Many were attributing her weight loss to just toning up and training hard, but Kesha apparently was "able to hide all the bad stuff from those that are close to her." Another rumor is that Kesha was butting heads with Dr. Luke who is producing her next album. Let's hope not!
