It's been a long, difficult few weeks for Ke$ha.
The singer kicked off 2014 by checking into a rehab facility to deal with an eating disorder.
In an unusual move, she was then joined there by her mother.
Now, a day after Pebe Sebert said her daughter nearly died and blamed Ke$ha disorder on the harsh critiques of music producer Dr. Luke, a friend has spoken out on behalf of the artist.
“This is Kesha’s friend," someone wrote from the singer's Twitter account. "She asked me to tweet an update for her because she doesn’t have access to twitter right now."
Added the pal:
“She says ‘THANK YOU. SOOO MUCH. I’m overwhelmed to tears by all of the love, letters, and support!! I’ll be back soon and better than ever.’
"Ohhh and she can’t believe Timber is still number one! “Fck YEAH animals! PARTY ON!!!!”
HA! It's nice to see the singer hasn't lost her sense of humor or her edge. We continue to wish her the best of luck in her recovery.
