#FREEKE$HA trends on Twitter

In Oct. 2014, Ke$ha filed a lawsuit against her producer, Lukasz Gottwald, also known as Dr. Luke, claiming that he abused her for nearly 10 years.

The lawsuit states that “Dr. Luke abused Ms. Sebert in order to destroy her self-confidence, self-image and self-worth so that he could maintain complete control over her life and career.”

That same month Dr. Luke came back with a countersuit, claiming that Ke$ha and her mother made up the allegations to “extort Dr. Luke into releasing Kesha from her exclusive recording agreement with [him].”

Then in Feb. 2016, Ke$ha went to court with her attorney, Mark Geragos, and filed an injunction for Ke$ha to be released from her contract. This injunction would have allowed Ke$ha to record outside of her record label, Sony Music.

Sadly, the judge denied her request claiming that there is not a sufficient amount of evidence of the abuse.

“There has been no showing of irreparable harm. Shes being given opportunity to record,” said Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich.

Once news broke out, fans began spreading the hashtag #FreeKesha all over social media along with their opinions of the verdict.

People began comparing her case to other celebrity cases, such as, Chris Brown and Zayn Malik.

“Zayn was able to leave a contract bc he was unhappy but Kesha can’t and she was sexually & mentally abused. In what world is this okay?” – @elenaxhs.

Aside from her fans supporting her, going as far as starting a GoFundMe to help get her out of her contract, both female and male artists have shown their support as well.

Taylor Swift donated $250,000 to Ke$ha to help with her financial needs. Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Lorde, Adele and Miley Cyrus, among other artist, have publicly shown their support for Ke$ha.

As of right now the case is still open. The court has given Ke$ha’s attorney an extension to gain more evidence on the abuse. So now all we can do is sit and wait for the final verdict, and hope she gets the freedom she deserves.
