Remember how Kesha the “tik tok” singer, claimed her music producer Dr. Luke sexually and physically abused her? Part of Kesha’s legal plea included a request for a preliminary injunction whereby she would be allowed to release music outside of Dr. Luke’s authority. Well her plea to get out of her exclusive contract was denied by a New York Judge on Friday, leaving the pop singer bawling.
Dr. Luke of course denies the allegations of abuse reporting that Kesha is simply trying to “break their exclusive contract as she is being persuaded by new management and is attempting to ruin his reputation in the process.”
After the hearing, Dr. Luke’s lawyer made the following statement to E news “As the Court recognized, Ms. Sebert [Kesha] has always had the ability to proceed with her career if she so chooses. We remain confident that when all the facts are presented that Ms. Sebert’s allegations against Luke will be shown to be completely false and were asserted solely to extort money and gain contractual leverage.”
Kesha’s defeasance during the trial provided her with support from several high profile celebrities, specifically Taylor Swift whom is the first to provide a monetary gift by donating $250,000 as means to show support.
A spokesperson for Taylor reported that this donation was to assist “Kesha with financial needs during this trying time.”
Kesha’s mom also confirmed the mass donation by tweeting “Taylor Swift has just generously donated $250,000 to Kesha, as a show of support during this difficult time.AMAZING!!” She then later shared the following statement on social media “A persons wealth is not measured by what they have but by WHO they help with it. And Taylor Swift is a truly RICH PERSON. Thank you. Most important for Kesha, is that these beautiful, powerful women are standing behind her, letting the world see how powerful the truth is!”
