Poor Kesha! Her career was dealt a devastating blow Feb. 19 when a judge in New York ruled that she must complete her six album contract with Sony, something she’s been fighting ever since she claimed that the company’s hit maker Dr. Luke sexually assaulted her.
Tik Tok on Kesha‘s recording career! She hit a major career roadblock when she lost her bid to get out of her recording contract with Sony, which could likely put a major kibosh on any new hits for the singer. Kesha — full name Kesha Rose Sebert — broke down in tears inside the courtroom when the judge delivered the heartbreaking news to her, and HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on how she’s now taking it.
“Kesha is absolutely devastated and shell-shocked about today. This whole scenario has been a nightmare and the fun-loving Kesha is nowhere to be seen. Her friends are always calling her and texting her and inviting her out to comfort her before today and they have all been doubling up their efforts since the judgement as they don’t want her to fall into a depression funk,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“Her friends know that she has a long road ahead of her and are determined to show their love and support along the way so things don’t turn worse for her. They don’t want to see her spirit totally shattered,” our insider adds.
The 28-year-old hasn’t released any new music since she sued her super producer Dr. Luke — real name Luke Gottwald — in 2014, claiming he drugged and raped her when she was 18. He was responsible for some of her biggest hits including “Tik Tok,” “Your Love Is My Drug” and “Die Young,” but once she made the allegations about him, their partnership was over and Kesha wanted out of the six-album deal that she had committed to.

Kesha then sued to get out of her contract with Sony Music because she didn’t want to come in contact with Dr. Luke, and even though the company said they’d pair her with other producers, her attorney Mark Geragos argued that the promise was “illusory” because even if she did make new music, Sony wouldn’t promote it because Dr. Luke is the one who makes bank for the company. The judge didn’t find any evidence to back up those claims and ruled Kesha must finish off her deal with Sony, something she’s loathe to do.
