Kesha’s mom recently revealed that “Kesha almost died” in an eye-opening statement this week about the severity of the star’s grave eating disorder before she entered rehab earlier this 2014. Pepe Sebert, Kesha’s mother, has finally opened up about the struggles her daughter has endured in terms of her anorexia and bulimia, claiming that they nearly killed her. InvestorPlace News shares the details this Tuesday, Jan. 21, on the “Your Love is My Drug” singer fortunately finding the help she needed before it was too late.

Mom’s “Kesha almost died” comment has gone viral this week after it was revealed to the public — and Kesha’s thousands of supportive fans — that the singer has indeed checked herself into a rehab center to receive treatment in aiding her to overcome her bulimia and anorexia. Sebert admitted that her daughter has dealt with body image issues for years since she was in school, but that her troubles had gotten progressively worse since starting her music career, and that it reached the point where the stress almost killed her. She said that the family tried to help, but they were unable to cope with the pressures Kesha's crazy, hectic, and beautiful life caused.

According to both Kesha and her mom, those body image insecurities continued to worsen after signing up with her former manager, David Sonenberg, and working with her producer Dr. Luke, both of whom encouraged her to keep losing weight in an effort to stay almost impossibly thin.

The mom, “Kesha almost died” acknowledgement came from Sebert, who claimed that Sonenberg even told her daughter more than once to keep shedding the pounds while on conference call. These strains only made her struggle with anorexia and bulimia more difficult to overcome, finally leading to a near-breakdown.

“I really don’t care what you do … Take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat —” were just some of the things that Sonenberg allegedly said, according to the worried mom’s statement.

Fortunately, the press release concludes that new reports are saying that Kesha is doing much better in dealing with her eating disorder issues now that she is in rehab. She is said to be focusing solely on her recovery, and appreciating what she has and her happiness for both her fans and her music career.
