Ke$ha entered rehab last week to battle an eating disorder, but here's some news that may cheer her up: she's #1 on the chart.  After spending a month at #2 behind Eminem and Rihanna's "The Monster," Ke$ha's collabo with Pitbull, "Timber," has finally topped the Billboard Hot 100.

As Billboard notes , "Timber" is Pitbull's second #1 hit on this chart, following "Give Me Everything;" it's Ke$ha's third, following "Tik Tok" and "We R Who We R."

Meanwhile, it seems that Ke$ha's trip to rehab was a surprise to those around her, according to People magazine.  One of the singer's friends tells the magazine, "It was kind of out of the blue. She's just as sensitive about her weight as anyone is, but not constantly talking about it."  When the friend noticed that Ke$ha seemed to be dropping pounds, the singer shrugged it off by saying, "I'm dancing constantly on tour and lost a little weight."

However, other friends of the singer tell People that this incident won't set Ke$ha back for long. "She thinks this is important to get a handle on, and it's great she's taking the initiative before it becomes something more serious," said one, while another told People , "She's a strong woman. She'll put in the work and get over this."

As for those rumors that Ke$ha's producer Dr. Luke drove her to an eating disorder by making cruel comments about her weight, a rep for the producer wouldn't comment for People's article.  However, an insider tells People , "He has been verbally abusive to her and insults her and the way she looks, saying she's not pretty enough or skinny enough. The abuse ultimately led Ke$ha to a bad place."

On Monday -- after Ke$ha's announcement -- Dr. Luke retweeted a posting by Pitbull, in which the rapper wrote, "it's still going down #timber making them dance everywhere.... love to @keshasuxx ."  On Wednesday, Pitbull tweeted out thanks to fans for helping the song hit #1, and also sent thanks to "all involved," including Kesha and Dr. Luke, who co-wrote and produced the track.
