Ke$ha's music producer Dr. Luke is in serious danger, according to the LAPD, after some of the singer's fans went nuclear -- blaming Luke for her eating disorder.
LAPD's Threat Management Unit filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- asking for a search warrant to hunt down the identity of people who are threatening Luke's life on Twitter.
The vengeful tweets started after TMZ ran a story that Ke$ha entered rehab for an eating disorder because Luke taunted her about her weight. Ke$ha's friend told us ... Luke told her she "looks like a f**king refrigerator."
In the search warrant docs, cops point out some of the tweets, including:
-- "You need to be worried because IMA slit your throat before January is over."
-- "You ugly fat ass bum bitch. Im gonna carve u like a pumpkin with a long sharp knife."
-- "Im gonna gut you like a fish then skin you and glue ur wrinkly raisin skin to a fridge!"
-- "I'm gonna slit your F**KIN throat open then gouge your eyeballs out."
Cops are taking the threats seriously, particularly because one tweet gave the home address and phone number of Luke and then invited followers to kill him.

Maurice Jones Drew is winning the battle of the bulge ... 'cause the Jacksonville Jaguars running back tells TMZ Sports he's dropped 15 POUNDS in the past 2 weeks ... and plans to keep it off.
A slimmer, trimmer MJD was out in NYC last night ... and told us why he deserves to be back in the running for top fantasy football RB next season -- and a lot of it has to do with this physique.
Maurice acknowledged that his 2013 season rubbed a lot of fantasy owners the wrong way ... but says, "It's a brand new off-season. Started working out ... I've lost 15 pounds in the last 2 weeks."
You can already see the difference -- it was just last May that MJD was out partying in Florida while smuggling what appeared to be a spare tire under his tank top.
Take THAT, Jenny Craig!

Despite her appearance, Jessica recently said she's currently 15 POUNDS HEAVIER than she was back in 2009 ... when she rocked the infamous mom jeans on stage at a concert.

4:28 PM PT -- Jason just responded on Twitter with a big belly photo, writing, "Thanks @tmz I needed this. Started my diet/workout program today. C u in a month!"

Blames Dr. Luke For Eating Disorder
He Called Me Fat
1/4/2014 5:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ke$ha is telling friends her eating disorder was caused by her very own music producer Dr. Luke -- claiming he bashed her weight and even called her a big, fat refrigerator ... TMZ has learned.
Sources directly connected to Ke$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.

Ke$ha has gone to rehab for an eating disorder ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the singer tell TMZ ... she's at Timberline Knolls near Chicago, the same place Demi Lovato went for her issues.
We're told the singer -- who's a vegetarian -- was admitted early this morning.
Ke$ha tells TMZ, "I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice. I'll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder ... to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am."
In Ke$ha's recent music video with Pitbull -- for the song, "Timber" -- she looks discernibly thinner.
Dropping 90 Pounds
Ain't So Sweet
1/3/2014 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Tom Arnold is half the man he used to be, dropping 90 pounds in 9 months -- but he tells TMZ, it wasn't easy ... he had to cut out sugar and bread from his diet and bust his ass exercising.
54-year-old Tom tells us his son Jax -- who was born in April -- is the inspiration for his weight loss. "My son is already cursed with an old dad, so he doesn't deserve to have a fat dad too."
According to Tom, the diet was a huge part, but he also did tons of circuit training, cardio, and took lots of Arnold Schwarzenegger's Muscle Pharm supplements.
Hasta la vista, belly.

I Wasn't Exactly In Hiding

Kim Kardashian says she hasn't been in hiding since the birth of North West ... it's debatable.
Kim was leaving a Sherman Oaks restaurant when one of the photogs asked her how it feels to be out of hiding. Her response is interesting.
The Hollywood post-baby game is to dump a lot of weight before stepping out in public. It's been 3 months since the kid was born and we've hardly seen Kim. She's definitely trimmed down and is pretty much back to being herself.
No surprise ... she's mum on Lamar.
