Pop singer Ke$ha has checked into rehab seeking treatment for an eating disorder.
In a statement released by her spokesperson on Friday, the "Tik Tok" star said she will be unavailable for the next 30 days while she seeks treatment for an undisclosed eating disorder.
The 26-year-old pop star told TMZ she wanted to "learn to love myself again, exactly as I am."
"I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice", the statement said. "I'll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder."
No other details were provided.
Ke$ha checked into the Chicago based Timberline Knolls centre on Friday morning, TMZ reported. The centre specialises in treating women struggling with eating disorders, addictions and traumas, according to its website.
Ke$ha, whose real name is Kesha Rose Sebert, is the performer of such hits as 'Crazy Love', 'Die Young' and 'Timber' with Pitbull. She starred in the MTV reality series My Crazy Beautiful Life.
