Kesha Reportedly Broke Due to Ongoing Legal Battle With Dr. Luke
"Sources connected with the singer tell us, aside from the fact that Kesha 'has been on ice for 3 years,' they say Dr. Luke has withheld royalties from her. As a result, she has virtually no income," the site reports.
“I just give more f--ks than other people and would rather start a dialogue ABOUT WOMEN COMING FORWARD ABOUT BEING RAPED than throw money at one person," Lovato wrote on Instagram.
"A persons wealth is not measured by what they have but by WHO they they help with it. And Taylor Swift is is a truly RICH PERSON. Thank you🌹," Kesha's mother tweeted.
"We're told Kesha did not solicit money, and Taylor Swift gave her the $250k on her own accord. Our Kesha sources say so far, no other celebs have donated money," TMZ added.
Dr. Luke's camp reportedly maintains that Kesha is using this lawsuit to "extort a contract renegotiation and money."
Kesha first filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke back in October of 2014, claiming that she had been “sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abused” over the course of their 10 year relationship. The producer fired back with a counter-lawsuit, claiming Kesha was lying and trying to extort him to get out of their binding record contract.
