Fans of Ke$ha have been banned from sending her their teeth as a show of support while the pop star spends time in rehab.

The unusual ban was put in place after the rehab facility where Ke$ha is staying while she receives treatment for an eating disorder was inundated with packages from fans. The singer uses the teeth to create art and accessories and even got a friend to tweet from her Twitter account requesting more teeth.

Speaking to TMZ, a spokesperson for the treatment facility Ke$ha is staying at confirmed the ban and explained that health and safety reasons are behind the decision: "We can't accept human remains. There is always a risk it could be bio-hazardous material so we are not able to bring in anything that's real."




Ke$ha's mother recently attacked producer Dr Luke and members of her daughter's advisory team after the singer entered rehab.

Around the same time, Ke$ha hit Number One in the Official UK Singles Chart with her track 'Timber', a collaboration with rapper Pitbull.
