Ke$ha

Blames Dr. Luke For Eating Disorder

He Called Me Fat

1/4/2014 5:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0104-dr-luke-kesha-gettyKe$ha is telling friends her eating disorder was caused by her very own music producer Dr. Luke -- claiming he bashed her weight and even called her a big, fat refrigerator ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected to Ke$ha tell us ... it all started when the singer's "Get Sleazy" tour ended in 2011.  She says Luke -- who signed Ke$ha to a deal at age 18 -- started ragging on her over the extra lbs she had gained in her downtime.

Ke$ha says Luke -- a huge producer who has worked with Miley Cyrus and Rihanna -- began calling Ke$ha fat and urged her management team to do something about it.

Our sources say Ke$ha complained ... during a music video shoot in 2012 Luke told her she "looks like a f***ing refrigerator" ... and the singer was profoundly affected by it.

We broke the story ... Ke$ha is now in rehab for an eating disorder.

Calls to Dr. Luke went unanswered.

"Effing refrigerator" is about the nicest thing I've ever heard anyone say about this woman.

Refrigerator? Really? Who hasn't been called worse? Either the lowest self esteem ever or she just can't take responsibity for her actions.

What about TMZ making fun of Ke$ha in her bikini for all the world to see? I'm sure that had NO IMPACT on her eating disorder. #ijs

Maybe, in rehab you will learn to take responsibility for yourself.

Unfortunately for Kesha...everyone was saying the same thing online and I'm positive her label totally co signed Dr. Luke. Blogs posted unflattering pictures of her and people responded. With that pressure, it's no surprise she developed an eating disorder, Dr Luke can't solely be to blame.

She has an apple body type (lots of people do) that gains easily in the middle but her legs will look good forever. Her stylists also need to stop with leotards, etc...never understood that on her. Dress for her body type.

While no man should ever call a female fat; You can't go blaming your problems on someone. It has to be much deeper than just a few comments

She was fat. Lets face it, she's no Adele. Does she seriously think it's all about her voice?! Stop blaming and keep yourself in shape, Keisha. Without Dr. Luke you'd be flipping burgers.
