So brave! Ke$ha checked into a Chicago-area rehab center on Jan. 3 to seek treatment for an eating disorder. She says her goal is to ‘learn to love myself again, exactly as I am.’
Ke$ha, 26, is seeking treatment at Timberline Knolls near Chicago, which is the same facility that Demi Lovato, 21, checked into in 2010 for an eating disorder and other issues. The “Timber” singer says she will be in rehab for the next 30 days.
