Kesha thanks fans for support as fellow musos offer to help her

2016-02-24 22:00

Los Angeles - Kesha has thanked her fans for their support after a court ruled she couldn't leave her recording contract.

The Tik Tok hitmaker had asked to be allowed to be dropped from her contract with Sony Music after she made allegations she was sexually abused by producer Dr Luke but was denied at the hearing on Friday.

She wrote on Instagram: "I am beyond words in gratitude. thank you is not enough but it is all I have. a million times over and forever thank you. the support I have received has left my face swollen from tears. I love you all so much. a statement too large for this format is coming.... (sic)"

Meanwhile, a number of celebrities have come out to support Kesha, including Girls star Lena Dunham who admits she "felt sick" on hearing the news.

She said: "When I saw the outcome of Kesha's court case last Friday, I felt sick. Actually sick - I wanted to ask my Uber to pull over so I could throw up in a New York City trash can.

"Sony could make this go away. But instead the company has chosen to engage in a protracted legal battle to protect Gottwald's [Dr. Luke's] stake in Kesha's future.

"Although the company insists that Kesha and Gottwald never need to be in a room together and that he will allow her to record without his direct involvement, they are minimizing what Kesha says regarding how Gottwald's continued involvement in her career would affect her physical well-being and psychological safety."

Lena’s boyfriend, Jack Antonoff, has also offered to produce new music for Kesha.

The Bleachers frontman has reached out to Kesha and said he'd go into the recording studio with her and she could do what she wanted with the sessions.

He tweeted: "hey @kesharose - don't know what the legal specifics are, but if you want to make something together & then leak it for everyone I'm around

"or just make something and wait on it till that creep can't block you anymore. standing offer from me and everyone I work with (sic)"

And Zedd - who is worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga - has also offered to produce music for the singer.

He tweeted: "very very sorry to hear about the whole situation. I'll be happy to produce a song for you if you want my help.(sic)"
