Popstar star Kesha has postponed her tour dates until completing her treatment for an eating disorder, according to a rep for the 26-year-old singer.

"I was so looking forward to performing at these dates but I need to follow my doctor's advice and get my health back on track," Kesha said in a statement, the Los Angeles Times reported.

"All of your support during this time has been so amazing," Kesha added. "I couldn’t have done this without you all. I look forward to coming back stronger than ever on the next tour."

Known for such singles as "Right Round," "Tik Tok," and "We R Who We R," the California-born Kesha checked into Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center located outside Chicago in January, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Kesha had been scheduled to perform in Indiana and Wisconsin through March and April.

"I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself but I've found it hard to practice," Kesha wrote on Facebook. "I'll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder ... to learn to love myself again. Exactly as I am."

The pop star also thanked her fans for their support on Twitter with a post last month.

Kesha’s mother, Pebe Sebert, has reportedly also checked herself into the same facility to help her daughter overcome her eating disorder.

According to Sebert, Kesha’s eating disorder stemmed from her producer, Lukasz "Luke" Gottwald also known as Dr. Luke, putting pressure on the young singer to constantly lose weight, MTV reported.

"I've watched my beautiful, self-confident, brilliant daughter be berated and ridiculed for her looks and weight to the point that she almost died," Sebert told the People magazine in January.

Gottwald has consistently denied the accusations.

Despite his denials, the music producer has reportedly received numerous death threats from Kesha fans on social media websites.
