Kesha cried today in a Manhattan Supreme Court when the verdict of her lawsuit against her ex-manager and producer Dr. Luke was announced. A judge denied her request for an injunction, which would’ve released her from her recording contract with Sony, and Dr. Luke.
This ruling means that Kesha is forced to continue working with Dr. Luke, the man that she alleges raped her and has physically and verbally assaulted her during their time spent working together. Kesha’s original contract with Sony requires her to make six more albums with company.
Kesha was banking on this particular court case to break free from her contract with Dr. Luke. Before the court trial, Kesha posted an Instagram photo of a sunrise writing, “This is for every woman, every human who has ever been abused.”
I have nothing left to hide. I did this because the truth was eating away my soul and killing me from the inside. this is not just for me. this is for every woman, every human who has ever been abused. sexually. emotionally. mentally. I had to tell the truth. so the outcome will be what it will be. there's nothing left I can do. it's just so scary to have zero control in your fate. but this is my path this life for whatever reason.... #Friday
Fans outside the courtroom supported Kesha, even after the verdict was announced. Although the main contract can’t be broken, Kesha’s assault allegations against Dr. Luke are still under review. Justice Kornreich has requested that Kesha’s defense team provide more information about the topic, there may still be a chance that Kesha can get out of her contract.
