Another star has stepped up to support Kesha. Fun and Bleachers musician and producer Jack Antonoff took to Twitter to extend a helping hand to the pop star, who had her request for a preliminary injunction against producer and her alleged abuser, Dr. Luke, denied Friday.
“hey [Kesha],” Antonoff tweeted, “don’t know what the legal specifics are, but if you want to make something together & then leak it for everyone I’m around.”
Antonoff followed up, calling Dr. Luke — born Lukasz Gottwald — a “creep” and offered up his entire production team.
The injunction sought to free Kesha from her recording contract with Sony, but New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich sided against Kesha’s argument. “You’re asking the court to decimate a contract that was heavily negotiated and typical for the industry,” Kornreich said Friday.
Dr. Luke’s lawyer called the sexual assault allegations against his client “outright lies” on Monday and declared any assertion the 28-year-old isn’t able to record without Dr. Luke “a myth.”
Over the weekend, other musicians came out in support of Kesha. Artists like Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, and Ariana Grande tweeted their support, and Taylor Swift donated $250,000 to Kesha to help “during this trying time.”
