Ke$ha Speaks Out From Rehab: ‘This is Really Hard’

Ke$ha takes to Twitter to personally thank fans for their 'love and support.'

One day after reaching out to her Animals through a friend, Ke$ha herself got on Twitter to thank fans for their support, saying that getting through rehab is something that she “couldn’t do” without them.

“hey It’s Kesha from treatment. I just wanted to say that this is really hard and necessary work,” Ke$ha tweeted on Wednesday (January 22). “I’m grateful for all the love and support.”

Ke$ha checked into rehab at Chicago’s Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center earlier this month to deal with an eating disorder and to “learn to love” herself again.

“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,” Ke$ha said in a statement to MTV News.

Fans were reassured on Tuesday after Ke$ha’s friend took to her Twitter page to reveal that the singer is on the fast track to recovery and that she will “be back soon and better than ever.”

A few hours after giving an update on Ke$ha’s health, her friend once again reached out to the Animals, asking for them to send over some very personal supplies for her latest art project.

“Hey guys this is K’s friend again. She’s doing well and needs more of your teeth to make art with at the treatment center. She misses you :),” the tweet read.

The request — which, according to TMZ, is not permitted by the treatment facility — may sound odd, but Ke$ha has been known to sport human teeth in the past by constructing bras, headdresses, earrings and necklaces from them.
