Kesha Goes To Court Over Clash With Producer

Posted at 2:43 PM, Feb 19, 2016

The pop star Kesha appeared in a New York City courtroom in the latest chapter of her long running legal dispute with the music producer Dr. Luke.

The singer, who is from the Nashville area, said she's fighting to wrest her career away from the hit-maker, whose full name is Lukasz Gottwald.

Kesha has claimed that Gottwald drugged, sexually abused, and psychologically tormented her.

He said the singer made up that story in an attempt to ruin his reputation to try to weasel out of her recording contract.

With Kesha watching tearfully from the audience, a judge refused to ditch her contract Friday, at least for now.

But that's far from the end of the dispute, which has sprawled to courts in three states.

Both celebrities and fans took to social media to show support for Kesha with the hashtag #FreeKesha.





Kesha also took to Twitter to thank her fans for all of the love and support:
