Kesha Opens Up On Recovery From Bulimia And Legal Case

Kesha has faced so many struggles. From eating disorders to an ongoing court battle with Dr. Luke. In 2014, she filed a lawsuit against her former producer, 49, accusing him of sexual assault, battery, and harassment.

Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, denied all of the allegations and filed his counter-lawsuit against Kesha for defamation.

Now, the singer has opened up about the “beautiful” healing process she’s undergone since she sought treatment for her eating disorder and how her life has been.

Kesha has never hidden her eating disorder in the past. She told Rolling Stone in an October 2017 interview that she knew the exact moment she realized she needed help — she was at a dinner party, pretending to eat her meal.

“And then finally I was like, ‘F–k. This. S–t. F–k this s–t. I’m hungry!’ And I am so anxious that I feel like I’m going to explode from all the secrets,” she recalled at the time.

“All the secret times I’m pretending to eat or other times I’m purging, and I’m trying to not let anybody know. And I’m just f–king sick of this shit.

And I remember just shaking because I was so fed up, so anxious, and I was just mad that I had let myself get to that point.”

Kesha, 36, clarified that her first step to getting better was checking into rehab in 2014 for an inpatient program to treat her bulimia.

“I had a particular moment with my eating disorder when the anxiety just got so high that I was not functioning,” she recalled in an interview with Self-published on Tuesday, June 20.

“It was taking up so much of my brain space, from morning to night. I was obsessed with what I looked like, what went in my mouth, what size things were, and people’s approval.”

Now, that she has worked with therapists to establish new routines, Kesha said she no longer feels anxious about the things that troubled her before.

Kesha has completed her rehab stay and is now Kesha channeling her emotions into her Album Rainbow, which dropped in August 2017. “I feel like I took my life back,” she told CBS Sunday Morning after the album’s release.

She has also just debuted her fifth studio album, Gag Order. The album explored her emotions about the legal battle she has been fighting since 2014.

The case is still ongoing. The New York Court of Appeals stated in early June that Dr. Luke is a “public figure,”. This means that he must prove that Kesha’s allegations were out of malice to win his suit.

The statement reversed an early ruling that said Dr. Luke was a private figure, which would have given him a minimal burden of proof. The trial for the defamation suit is set to begin in July.

Kesha also said, “No one could have told me this 10 years ago, but … freedom from that obsession is there,”. “It takes work to get there.

But sitting here knowing that I don’t count any calories, I don’t know what my pant size is and I don’t weigh myself is so beautiful.”

For her routine, she told Self, “I always have three meal breaks, ’cause being in recovery, I need to have time to sit and have a meal,”.

“I have about 30 minutes before I go on stage where I meditate, stretch, and do breathing exercises. People probably think I’m back there doing shots, and [my routine is] the most zen s–t you’ve ever seen.”

Her home routine borders on enjoying her food, shopping for ingredients at the farmers market, and cooking for fun.

Speaking to Self, Kesha explained that she’s been trying to talk about the legal situation, which has been part of her life since 2014.

However, after she has processed her feelings, she chose to pour them into her music. “With this album, it was the first time I shed real light on subjects that, previously, I was too nervous to,” she explained.
