Ke$ha announced on Jan. 3 that she checked into rehab for an eating disorder, but new details are emerging that the singer is also seeking help for an alleged drinking problem during her 30-day stint.
Ke$ha is determined to battle all of her demons in the New Year. So in addition to getting help for an eating disorder, the “Timber” singer, whose friends and family are worried she may have a drinking problem, will reportedly seek additional treatment for alcohol dependency.
Ke$ha’s Alcohol Abuse — Singer’s Rehab Stay Will Also Focus On Alleged Drinking Problem
Most of the 26-year-old singer’s song lyrics celebrate the lifestyle of one who parties hard and boozes daily. But those hard drinking days have taken a toll on Ke$ha, which is why she’s decided to seek help, a source close to the singer tells RadarOnline.com.
“In recent months, those closest to her had become increasingly worried about her drinking,” the source reveals. “It’s been the stuff of legend in the past and she’s never hidden the fact that she loves to drink. Now, though, part of her bid to get healthy is to get completely healthy — and that will involve looking at her abuse of alcohol.”
But that doesn’t mean Ke$ha is planning to give up drinking altogether, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Without a doubt she is being treated for alcohol as well. She isn’t looking to stop drinking but she is looking to curb it substantially,” the source says. “She is a major partier if that wasn’t obvious!”
We’re so proud of Ke$ha for confronting all of her issues head on. Hopefully she is already on the road to being happy and healthy.
Ke$ha Sings About Brushing Her Teeth With Jack Daniels
Perhaps the writing has been on the wall for a long time now. You’ll recall in one of Ke$ha’s first big hits “Tik Tok,” she sings about brushing her teeth with a bottle of Jack Daniels. Ke$ha later came clean about that lyric in a 2011 interview with Vanity Fair.
“Jack Daniels is an anti-bacterial and it’s way better than morning breath,” she told the mag. “Let me put it this way, if you wake up naked in a bathtub and you have the choice between rinsing out with Jack Daniels or trying to make out with some dude with morning breath, I would recommend picking up the Jack.”
Ke$ha may be seeking help for her drinking, but her eating disorder is still the main reason she entered rehab.
“There’s no doubt that Ke$ha has her demons and the chief one is an eating disorder,” the source said. “It’s the primary reason she checked into Timberline Knolls.”
So HollywoodLifers, do you admire Ke$ha for seeking help with her alleged drinking problem? Let us know.
