Courtesy of Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Anne Hathaway, and a legion of fans and supporters, ‘Blow’ singer Ke$ha has been receiving a wealth of well-wishes following a devastating blow in court last week when her bid for release from her record contract with Dr. Luke and Sony Music was denied by a New York judge.

The lawsuit, which forms part of a bigger legal showdown that sees her allege sexual and mental abuse at the hands of the producer, has taken a number of turns since originally dominating headlines – the most recent coming thanks to a video from 2011 where the songstress swore under oath Luke had not drugged or abused her (seen after the jump).

While the mess only looks to get messier, fans have not ceased their outpouring of support for the embattled star.  A host of petitions, that have collectively amassed over 300,000 signatures, continue to gain attention from the media and Kesh alike.

      Where’s the news? Because I called it. But K wasn’t lying, that’s why she was let go.

      • What now February 24, 2016

        K was let go bc they needed to do a quick house clean up. Just last month though, someone released her court video and compared it to what she claimed. Long story short, bihs be lying.

    Who signs an 10 album deal? Sony doesn’t really let their artist go, I said that a while ago and all of the sudden, Beyonce signs a “new” deal with them.

    • MusicFan103 February 24, 2016

      8 album deal. She released 2. Has 6 more to go allegedly.

    Not looking good Misss Kesha, I’m glad I reserved my judgement! SMH

  7. MusicFan103 February 24, 2016

    Well I never was quick to judge Dr. Luke.

    He may not be the best boss in the world. Most music execs push their collaborators to work hard and well pass their wishes. That is their job to get the best out of them.

    I still think her case is VERY faulty. The cross examination will ask her point blank period, were you lying in that deposition under oath, or are you lying now?

  8. Janet February 24, 2016

    Everyone is so quick to jump on the anti Dr. Luke, Pro Kesha bandwagon without looking at the facts. Kesha lied about him raping her……period. So what else is she lying about? That was the major basis for wanting out of the contract and its a lie. She has destroyed this man’s career, his livelihood, and reputation and no one has stopped for a second to ask how this is okay. If he did take advantage of her, then he should be held accountable, but if he didnt, then she needs to be held to her contract because that is how business works. She sure knows how to milk the sympathy angle, that is for damn sure.

      I agree 100% if the allegations are false then he should sue her a** for defimation of character. And she should be charged perjury for lying under oath. I don’t know the full story however I strongly believe that they had some type of ongoing intimate relationship that may have went sour at some point & it appears she’s trying to milk the situation and get out of her sh*t contract. I know there’s more to this story & the truth will be revealed soon enough. My thing is; why doesn’t she just re-release her second or first album? Wouldn’t that count towards the 6? Then she could potentially release 5 more short albums just for the sake of fulfilling her contractual obligations.. I mean, she is a song writer right? This shouldn’t be difficult.. I could be wrong though

    Sony going to do her like they did mike. Sad to see what’s happening to her. But she signed the contract so it ms solely on her. Deal with the repercussions. I would recant on my story to knowing what those slime bags are capable of. They could be the best producers but still have a little Satan nip tucked somewhere. I believe she is being abused. I don’t see someone making good money and content with their fame to just blatantly lie or go against them knowing the plausible outcomes. I hope she finds her way.
