US pop star Kesha has updated her fans on her rehab treatment via her official Twitter account.

"This is Kesha's friend. She asked me to tweet an update for her because she doesn't have access to twitter right now," read the first message.

"She says 'THANK YOU. SOOO MUCH. I'm overwhelmed to tears by all of the love, letters, and support!! I'll be back soon and better than ever.'

"Ohhh and she can't believe Timber is still number one," it continued.

Earlier this month the singer confirmed she was going to rehab to get help for an eating disorder.

In a statement provided by her spokesman on Friday, the star said she would be "unavailable for the next 30 days" as she received the treatment she needed.

"I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice," she added.

The 26-year-old is at number two on the Official Singles Chart with Timber, her collaboration with Pitbull. The track is number one in the US.

She is being treated at the Timberline Knolls centre near Chicago.

Kesha said she wanted to "learn to love myself again, exactly as I am".

No other details were released at the time.

The singer, whose full name is Kesha Rose Sebert, rose to fame with her song Tik Tok.

She has also had hits with Crazy Kids and Die Young and featured in the MTV reality series My Crazy Beautiful Life.
