A judge has ruled that singer Ke$ha can’t be released from her record contract with Dr. Luke after she accused him of abuse and rape, so singer Taylor Swift stepped in and showed her support in a big way!
Taylor Swift’s spokesperson told USA TODAY Monday: “In a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time.”
Ke$ha sued Dr. Luke (Lukasz Gottwalkd) back in 2014, after revealing the claim of him abusing her, which reportedly includes drugging her and instances of sexual assault. Based on the judge’s decision, Ke$ha was not able to be released from her contract with Dr. Luke, which is not only hindering her ability and restricting her freedom to make other music, but also allows her to continuing working with her accuser. Dr. Luke recently put up several tweets about the court ruling, and stated that he did not rape Ke$ha.
The accused producer has worked with several other artists including Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry.
Other female celebrities have showed support for Ke$ha on social media including Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, and Ariana Grande. Gaga stated on Twitter:
“There are people all over the world who love you @KeshaRose. And I can say truly I am in awe of your bravery.”
Rumors are swirling that although Lovato is in support of the singer, that she also did not find Swift’s donation heartwarming. She believes Swift should have spoken on the issue, and not just donated which she believes she only did to ‘further her brand’. She tweeted out: “’Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I’ll be impressed.”
Taylor has yet to comment back to Demi, but on the other hand, Ke$ha thanked her fans which she affectionally refers to as animals for their support!
“thank you for all the support in my legal case animals. I love all of you. it’s meant the world to me. xoxo.”
