Blames Dr. Luke For Eating Disorder

He Called Me Fat

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

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.

Her producer is also her boss and the head of her record label. If she doesn't do what he says, he may penalize her. He isn't even letting her put the songs she wants on her albums.

Take responsibility for your OWN actions!!! Many people called you fat Kesha. Blame yourself for all the food you shoved in your mouth and then if you're gonna develop an eating disorder after someone call you fat then you're as insecure as you are far and talentless!!! Fat fat fat and ugly too!!! Go cry me a river

She looks good in that video, but not because she is thinner... She just looks clean and fresh... Not cracked out looking hair and makeup

KESHA ... if you are that sensitive to the inevitable onslaught of criticism that comes with success and fame - you need to retire.
You have created an image of being a flamboyant, outrageous party girl - and with that comes all the public attention that you have willingly sought out. And EVERYONE who aggressively seeks fame and notoriety KNOWS they will receive boatloads of negative commentaries along with the fame and money.
You know THIS IS NOT a career for those NOT tough enough to tune it out. You can't have it both ways.

I know she doesn't care what I think, but she looks 10 times better now than she did when she wasn't in shape. Now being in shape and starving yourself are 2 different things. I always thought when I seen pics of her that she is not bad looking but has an odd out of shape body which was disappointing. She looks great now but it can't come at the cost of her health.

If you are going to be fat again, your voice better be like that fat british chick. You can't have a party type voice and persona and have the odd out of shape flabby body she had previously. She looks great now, don't go back to being fat.

If anyone has been following Ke$ha, and I'm sure TMZ has, you would see that this is the beginning of a lawsuit against Dr. Luke. Look at the article following it where she says she is in rehab because of him. He is a total loss. And she wants rid of him. And the only way that's going to happen early is through actions like this. He is ruining her career.

Really, she was getting bashed for her there was nothing else to bash her about that he may have wanted her to improve first? How about her hair...or her (lack of) style...or her clown make up .. There were so many more things to go for , before the weight thing..

I would give ANYTHING to see each and everyone of you people so I could see too skinny, crooked teeth, yellow teeth, unkempt hair, four-eyes,big ears, big feet, fat, short, too tall, no necks,swan necks, smelly and/or greasy hair, nasty beards,thin hair,receding hairline,big noses,no lips,fat lips, thin lips, large eyes, little eyes,little chest, oversized chest, too hairy,etc etc etc. It could go on forever. No one is perfect.No one has the right no matter who they are or what they discovered. She obviously makes him money which is his love or he'd cut her loose. Lots of singers are overweight and are raking in the money. Hatemongering is rampant and I am sickened by all who participate in it.And now I will wait for the outpouring of insults.

He should have called her one of the most untalented people on the planet. She is too much hyped about nothing. The only person with the true talent is her Publicist for keeping her relevant and her Publicist deserves an award.
