Lorde & Lily Allen Offer Up Support to Devastated Kesha After Legal Loss
Kesha’s pop star peers and pals have offered the singer their support after a judge shot down her bid to end her contract with producer Dr. Luke and Sony on Friday. The “Tik Tok” hitmaker broke down in tears as New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich upheld her recording deal, despite the pop singer’s claims her career had been put on hold because she could no longer work with the producer she has accused of drugging and raping her. Kesha also asserted she was offered no other options but to work with her accused sexual abuser Luke, insisting she was forbidden to take on projects with other producers on the label.
Fans showed up outside the courthouse in Manhattan on Friday morning to show Kesha their support and after the verdict her famous friends offered up words of comfort via social media. Lorde, Lily Allen, and Halsey were among the pop stars who took to Twitter to share their “disgust” over the outcome of the delayed court hearing. “Standing with @KeshaRose through this traumatic, deeply unfair time,” Lorde wrote. “Send good vibes her way everyone.” Allen added, “My thoughts are with @KeshaRose today. I’m sorry you’ve had to endure this experience.” Meanwhile, angry Halsey offered, “Disgusted by anyone in power positions abusing their authority. My heart breaks for Kesha and all people affected by this toxicity. Fuck… I don’t even know what I would do… I only hope she can find peace and find a way to continue to create express herself without fear [sic].” There was also support from Alessia Cara and Wale.
