Kesha Rose Sebert (Born March 1, 1987), better known as Kesha (stylized as Ke$ha), is an American recording artist. Her breakthrough came in early 2009 after appearing on Flo Rida's number one single "Right Round". Pictures of Ke$ha / Kesha at Gossipcenter.com.
A judge has denied Kesha's request for an amended lawsuit against Dr. Luke.
In late January, the 'Tik Tok' singer's legal team filed a petition arguing that she should be released from her contract with the producer - whom she accused of sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abusing her for a number of years - due to unpaid royalties and an alleged unwillingness from Dr. Luke in releasing her third studio album.
She said in her proposed countersuit: "You can get a divorce from an abusive spouse. You can dissolve a partnership if the relationship becomes irreconcilable. The same opportunity - to be liberated from the physical, emotional, and financial bondage of a destructive relationship - should be available to a recording artist."
It’s no secret that she’s been tied up in a painful legal battle with her record label Sony regarding the way her producer Dr. Luke allegedly abused her, and now Kesha is ready to unleash her pent-up aggression.
The “Your Love Is My Drug” songstress is slated to take the stage at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards on May 22nd and her performance will make direct reference to the trials and tribulations she experienced as of late.
As her ongoing saga to break her contract with Sony continues, Kesha
now says the record label offered to release her if she lie and say the Dr. Luke abuse never happened.
The “TiK ToK” songstress took to her Instagram on Sunday (April 3) to let fans know about the proposed backroom deal- “so. I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie. I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped.”
Enjoying the warm weather and sunshine on Easter Sunday (March 27), Kesha treated her social media followers to a sexy selfie while laying by the pool.
The “Your Love is My Drug” songstress also made sure to call out the haters in her preemptive caption- “not a slave to perfection right now. f**k it. ***body shamers please f**k off ain't nobody got time for it.”
She scored the very first trophy of the night last night (February 24) at the 2016 BRIT Awards, and Adele used her time at the microphone to show some love to Kesha.
The “Hello” songstress accepted the British Female Solo Artist honor, presented to her by Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, and after she thanked the important people in her life she added, “I’d like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha.”
