Taylor Swift has your back, Kesha!
Just a few short days after the “Tik Tok” singer faced a pretty intense trial against Dr. Luke, where she sought a preliminary injunction that would allow her to release music outside of Dr. Luke’s authority. A judge denied the request Friday afternoon leaving the singer pretty upset, after one would be if one found out you had to keep working with a dude who sexually assaulted you. Now, Tay is stepping up in a major way. E! Reports:
“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,” Taylor’s spokesperson told E! News.
Kesha’s mom also confirmed the news by tweeting, “Taylor Swift has just generously donated $250,000 to Kesha, as a show of support during this difficult time.AMAZING!!”
The news comes after several famous faces in the music industry spoke out in support of Kesha following her emotional day in court.
“As the Court recognized, Ms. Sebert [Kesha] has always had the ability to proceed with her career if she so chooses,” Dr. Luke’s lawyer said in a statement to E! News after the decision was made. “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.”
Everyone’s feeling for Kesha right now, and they should- this is a pretty bad deal. Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande, Lorde and Demi Lovato all sent support tweets, while Lady Gaga even commended her “bravery” as the trial plays out in the public eye.
We’re with you, Kesh.
