Ke$ha's Mom Checks Into Rehab With Singer

Ke$ha’s mother has checked into rehab.

The singer’s mom, Pebe Sebert, has joined her daughter at a Chicago-area treatment center.

“I’m checking myself into Timberline Knolls today for post-traumatic stress disorder, at Ke$ha’s urging,” the 57-year-old revealed in a statement to People on Saturday.

Pebe claimed her stress has been caused by her speaking out about Ke$ha’s advisors, including producer Dr. Luke, allegedly pressuring the “Tik Tok” singer to lose weight.

“This whole Dr. Luke thing has almost torn our family apart and taken over my life, and Ke$ha wants me to heal along with her,” she told the mag.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Ke$ha revealed she was heading to rehab in a statement last week.

“I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself but I’ve found it hard to practice,” the 26-year-old singer said. “I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder… to learn to love myself again. Exactly as I am.”
