Kesha Backs Eating Disorder Awareness Campaign
Popstar Kesha has backed a campaign urging those suffering from eating disorders to get help. The “Tik Tok” singer entered a treatment center for bulimia nervosa in 2014. She chose to mark her 30th birthday on March 1 by asking others who are suffering from eating disorders to seek help.
Her plea, promoting America’s National Eating Disorder Association’s (NEDA) awareness week, was issued in a Tweet which also shared her own story. “It’s time to talk about eating disorders This #NEDAwareness Week, Get screened at http://nationaleatingdisorders.org/screening,” she posted, which was accompanied by a picture message detailing how bulimia had almost killed her. Kesha has been involved in an intense legal battle with her former producer Lukasz ‘Dr Luke’ Gottwald, in which she has accused him of sexually and emotionally abusing her during their decade working together. The singer is attempting to sever ties with Dr Luke and his Kemosabe record label.
