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.

Why do she always look spaced out/high as hell? I know I am not the only one noticing that.

I'm not a fan of Ke$ha's music at all, but she should fire the bastard. He's the one that is the real pig! No one needs that kind of treatment.

Maybe not the size of fridge, but no denying she let herself go for a while. Those beach pics indicate she wasn't aware of how bad it was.

Another 'blame them not me' celebrity. Eat up fridge. Come downs from blow are killer! But we have to give it up for her PR team. They are keeping the truth hush hush.

Take responsibility for your own actions, Ke$ha! No need to be like Lindsay Lohan!

We shouldn't really be pointing fingers here. As fun as it is to pick sides about who is at fault, the real problem is the fact that yet another celebrity is going through it. Yes, as a celebrity, Ke$ha signed up for the media to scrutinize her, but let's be real, a majority of you wouldn't be able to handle the negative media attention either. She already has haters and people who bash her every move, but the fact that her own producer says things about her body is pretty disrespectful. If he thinks he's helping her career by being a total tool than half of you with all your negativity should be in the producing biz as well...

Believe it. It's wrong and I hope other female singers speak up about how this goes on (some already have).

That is a shame that he said that to her but if we did something self destructive every time someone said something hurtful too us we'd be one sick world. Worse than we already are... We need to take responsibility for ourselves.

To be critized and compared to a refrigerator is not fun & my guess hurtful, this entertainer is being paid big money to entertainthe public. Most of the public wants to see a young artist looking fit. She knows if she wants to keep a roof over her head she needs to stay in shape. In Ho!!ywood if you want success it takes hard work and dedication to keeping your mind, body and inner being healthy and happy. This girl knows in the entertainment industry every pound gained is a no no. Stop the blame game and get yourself in the gym and lose the weight.
