Last week we reported that Ke$ha had entered rehab to seek treatment for an eating disorder and ever since, her mom hasn’t stopped talking about it. Â While Pebe Sebert has shed some light on what lead her daughter to battle bulimia and has been very vocal in her support of her daughter, which is great, I don’t think it a solid idea to constantly talk to various press outlets about your daughter’s issues while she’s in rehab.
Yesterday, Pebe gave a statement toÂ People magazine where she admitted she will be seeking treatment right alongside her daughter:
“I’m checking myself into Timberline Knolls today for post-traumatic stress disorder, at Ke$ha’s urging. Â This whole Dr. Luke thing has almost torn our family apart and taken over my life, and Ke$ha wants me to heal along with her.”
Look, the whole Dr. Luke thing is awful. Â If he’s really a big part of Ke$ha’s problems, then I’m glad he’s been called out for being the abusive jerk he apparently is. Â Because that’s what it is: abuse. Â It’s sickening, sexist, demeaning, and sleazy. Â But I think if Ke$ha wanted people to know that, it’s her story to tell. Â Not her mother’s. Â Then again, the reason her mom has been talking so much this week could be directly related to the “post traumatic stress disorder” she is allegedly suffering from. Â Who knows?
I’m not here to judge anyone’s reasons for seeking treatment. Â I think that’s a personal journey and recognizing you could use some help is never a bad thing. Â It’s just that, in my completely unprofessional opinion limited to A&E’sÂ Intervention and my own mommy issues, I don’t know how beneficial it will be for either Ke$ha or her mother to be in the same treatment center at the same time for two different issues (albeit directly related, yes). Â Either way, I wish them nothing but health and happiness.
