"I can't believe that so many people all over the world took the time to show me support and love. Other entertainers who knowingly put their own careers at stake by supporting me, I will be forever grateful,” she wrote on Wednesday.

Kesha, whose real name is Kesha Rose Sebert, alleged that producer Lukasz Sebastian "Dr. Luke" Gottwald "sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abused" abused her for ten years. 

The singer wrote: “All I ever wanted was to be able to make music without being afraid, scared, or abused. This case has never been about a renegotiation of my record contract – it was never about getting a bigger, or a better deal. This is about being free from my abuser. I would be willing to work with Sony if they do the right thing and break all ties that bind me to my abuser.

"But at this point, this issue is bigger than just about me.”

 

I'm so, so beyond humbled and thankful for all of the support I'vereceived from everyone. Words cannot really express...
