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.

She is fine! I don't know why Luke would say that. First he doesn't even let her have creative freedom over her music, next he bashes her weight? Wow. She is blaming him for stuff now because she is sick of his antics and wants freedom musically and physically. Words hurt more than sticks and stones. I love Ke$ha. I wish her the best through her recovery.

And she isn't blaming him for the whole reason why she had an eating disorder, she is saying it stemmed from the time he started bashing her weight.

That's BS to blame anyone for who you do about your feelings. So tired of people. It taking responsibility for their own actions. He could have said it nicer but the truth is the truth, that's a rough industry, and if she wants to blame him she should also blame the entire media who puts pictures of her in a bikini online and in magazines. ..He is not her problem he is just the messenger who probably had to tell it how it is because she argued with him about it. All these people want fame and money, there are a lot of elements and it's hard, you might want to start with a shrink the day you start in that business just to relieve the stress to someone who can't use it against you for a story.

Just watched her latest video with Pittbull, she is very thin! Not a fan and never listen to her music,however maybe rehab is a bit much unless she has other issues!

Kesha was out of shape. That's the truth. She wasn't "fat" but she was definitely out of shape. When she gets out of rehab I hope the first thing she does is fire her stylist, or whoever was responsible for that horrid outfit she wore onstage. She needs to wear clothes that flatter her body type. Those high cut/hip showing bathing suit looking outfits don't work Kesha! Don't even put it on! If someone tells you to put on a high cut outfit slap them because they're trying to make you look stupid!!

if 'fat' was the only thing he called her, she should be commending and thanking him for being generous.

As a father of two daughters this sickens me. Society is so unfair to women. All these famous people in magazines are airbrushed and made up and when you see photos of the people without make up its shocking. This guy has no problem making millions off this girl and is just worried the cash will dry up because people are so focused on looks. It's too bad, this girl is the one who loses, her producer will just move on to the next one. What's TE message here to young girls!! Not good. Then I read all the women on tho site putting down other women due to looks

I guess in 2014 it's now illegal to call another person fat? The younger generation cannot accept the truth, they seem to think everything in life is suppose to be fair.. She is fat, end of story.

When people refer to freedom of speech, they forget the it refers only to the government not making laws again it. People should still not insult others.

Uh ... if she was so deeply wounded by someone calling her fat that she stopped eating ...
.
Why then when thousands told her she couldn't sing, why is she still singing. Shouldn't she have developed laryngitis?
