Kesha thanks ‘everyone who is supporting survivors and telling their stories’ in selfie post amid renewed controversy surrounding Dr. Luke

  • The post comes days after fellow musician Fiona Apple spoke out in support of Kesha, slamming the Recording Academy behind the Grammys for recognizing Dr. Luke for his work on Doja Cat’s Say So
  • In a recent interview with The Guardian, Apple slammed the Grammys for Luke’s Record of the Year nomination, which he earned while working under the pseudonym Tyson Trax
  • The producer — who’s full name is Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald — has repeatedly denied Kesha’s rape claims and sued the singer for defamation in 2014, a case which is still ongoing 
  • Kesha accused Gottwald, 47, of sexual assault and emotional abuse and sued him for infliction of emotional distress and gender-based hate crimes 
  • He denied the allegations and claimed she smeared him with lies in hopes of getting out of her record contract 

Kesha took to Instagram on Sunday evening with a stunning and fresh-faced selfie, including a heartfelt message of gratitude to those ‘supporting survivors and telling their stories.’

Perhaps the TiK ToK singer, 33, was commenting on recent developments concerning the record producer she previously accused of sexual assault, Dr. Luke, who is nominated this year for another Grammy.

‘Thanks to everyone who is supporting survivors and telling their stories,’ she wrote in the caption in full. ‘They see you and appreciate it more than you could ever know.’

Kesha took the photo in a car during the day, wearing a beige knit cap and black top. 

She had her blonde hair in pigtails braids and was wearing a necklace and nose ring.

The Your Love Is My Drug singer, who herself is a two-time Grammy nominee, stared frankly at the camera, her luminous blue green eyes shining brightly.

Kesha accused Gottwald, 47, of sexual assault and emotional abuse and sued him for infliction of emotional distress and gender-based hate crimes. 

In her lawsuit, Kesha, who started working with the producer when she was 17, charged him with sexual assault and emotional abuse and sued him for infliction of emotional distress, gender-based hate crimes and employment discrimination.

He denied the allegations and claimed she smeared him with lies in hopes of getting out of her record contract.

Earlier this year, a New York judge ruled that Kesha defamed Dr. Luke with past text message to Lady Gaga, claiming he raped Katy Perry.

Kesha was ordered to pay $374K in late royalty payments in February, but her legal team said they planned to immediately appeal.

A number of high-profile artists — including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Adele and Kelly Clarkson — have come out in support of Kesha.

Kesha’s 2017 Grammy-nominated album Rainbow had many tracks that directly commented on her trauma, including the beautiful songs Learn To Let Go and Praying.
