Ever since Ke$ha checked herself into a rehab centre to be treated for an eating disorder, people have been wondering just how long she suffering before actually going to seek help.

But now, Ke$ha's mother Pebe Sebert has spoken out about just how bad her daughter's condition got before finally choosing to admit herself into a treatment facility.

Pebe, who was confirmed to have checked in to the same rehab centre as Ke$ha for post traumatic stress disorder, has opened up to People magazine and explained that Ke$ha's eating disorder had reached the point where doctors were fearing for her life.

Pebe told the magazine: "[The doctors] told me her blood pressure and sodium were so low they'd never seen that, except with someone who'd had a heart attack or stroke.

They said it was a miracle she hadn't dropped dead onstage. She had a breakdown. She called me from the gas station and admitted how much she'd been throwing up...

I just said, 'OK,' and called some [treatment] centres. Ke$ha agreed to talk to them, liked what they said and basically cried until we got her there."
