Ke$ha‘s mother, Pebe Sebert, is checking into the same rehab facility as her daughter. She’s admitting herself for post-traumatic stress disorder, following Ke$ha’s own struggles with bulimia — and Dr. Luke‘s denial that he was partially responsible.

Ke$ha, flagship artist of Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records, checked into Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, near Chicago, on January 3. A week later, Sebert accused the producer of calling his protege a “refrigerator” during the making of a music video, which he promptly denied.

“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,” Sebert says.

Last fall, she posted a “Free Ke$ha” petition — as in, from Dr. Luke specifically — and elaborated on a Rolling Stone statement that her daughter wanted more “creative freedom.” One fan asked whether her label RCA or the producer was responsible. “dr luke,” Sebert said.

    It’s interesting that Ke$ha asked her mom to check into rehab after her mother’s diagnose. While there’s no doubt the allegations against Luke are true, and if you read his statement carefully, he never actually accused Pebe of lying, I think Ke$ha doesn’t want her mom taking to the media. It seems her mother has been very stressed by the whole thing and isn’t thinking through what she’s telling the media. It can’t be good for Ke$ha’s mental health to have her mom blabbing her problems to tabloids even if it’s all true.
