It’s been a rough year for Kesha. The artist lost her legal battle to be released from record contract with Sony, which would have her work with her alleged abuser Dr. Luke. The artist’s legal plight drew tons of celebrity support in February, including a $250,000 donation from Taylor Swift. She even got a supportive shout-out from Adele in the “Hello” singer’s impassioned Brit Awards acceptance speech, despite both artists belonging to the same label. Now, the Tik Tok singer has taken to Instagram with a shocking revelation from her ongoing bid to gain independence from Sony.
In a post that’s already making its rounds around the Internet, Kesha writes:
“so. I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie. I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.”
Basically, Kesha is saying that Sony would let her out of her contract only IF she called herself a liar and apologized to Dr. Luke. If what she says is true, it’s definitely troubling.
While only Kesha and Dr. Luke may ever know what happened between them behind closed doors, it’s clear that Kesha is hurting. Hopefully her allies out in the music biz will continue to give her the support she needs.
Do you think Kesha should be released by Sony? Let us know @britandco!
