At the age of 18, pop singer, Kesha, was signed to producer Dr. Luke’s label Kemosabe Records owned by Sony Music Entertainment, and now 10 years later, she is allegedly trying to get out of her contract after being abused by him. Kesha’s first court date was Feb. 19.


“I feel bad for her. She just wants to get out of a really bad relationship, and they wont let her,” feminist, Sussy Sanchez, 10, said.


Dr. Luke is being accused of sexual abuse as well as causing Kesha’s bulimia disorder. Kesha officially asked for removal in Oct. 2014.


“She’s [Kesha] done,” Sanchez said. “She probably thought it would be over [that], he [Dr. Luke] would be over her but he is not.”


Dr. Luke has gone to Twitter to talk about the allegation. He denied any sort of sexual relations with Kesha. He then continued to thank family, friends and fans for their support.


Fans of Kesha have supported to the singer starting by the hashtag #FreeKesha on Twitter. They have also created a website, and a GoFundMe account to raise money to buy Kesha from her contract. The account has already raised over $22,000 in eight days, by 1,425 people.


Celebrities have also shown their support for Kesha on Twitter such as: Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Halsey, Lorde, Bea Miller and many more. Taylor Swift donated $250,000 to Kesha to help her through her hard time.


The case is being handled by the Supreme Court located in Washington, DC. It is still ongoing, with cases to follow. So far, they have denied her and claim to not release her from her contract.
