Kesha Looks Happy and Healthy on the Beach With Boyfriend Brad Ashenfelter (PHOTOS)

Our girl Kesha seems to be in a really great place these days. The “Timber” songstress had a difficult start to 2014, when she checked into a treatment facility for an eating disorder. However, these days she’s living a healthier lifestyle, complete with hottie boyfriend Brad Ashenfelter, and a just-completed gig as a judge on ABC’s Rising Star. You go girl!

Kesha (no longer Ke$ha, BTW) appeared to be happier than ever during her Labor Day weekend, where she took to the beach in Malibu with some friends — including Brad. Decked out in a red patterned one-piece swimsuit, Kesha frolicked in the water with pals. She then dried off on-land, where she even gave her bearded beau a kiss. Aww!

The pop star recently told Us Weekly that she met Brad through her stylist, calling him a “really sweet human being.” Beyond that, however, she’s clearly looking to keep their relationship mostly private, though the 27-year-old admits “I’m really happy with my beard.” Ha!
