Troubled pop star Ke$ha has postponed her spring tour to concentrate on battling her eating disorder problems.

The “Tik Tok” singer entered a rehab facility at the beginning of January and she isn’t quite ready to hit the road again.

In a statement to fans, she writes, “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.

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

Ke$ha has just completed a month-long treatment program at the Timberline Knolls clinic in Illinois – the same health centre Demi Lovato called home for three months in 2010 and 2011 as she tackled her own drug addiction and food issues.
