It has been a REALLY tough few days for Kesha, but the support she’s gotten from Taylor Swift and more has made it just a tiny bit easier. The singer is totally blown away and touched by Tay’s $250,000 donation — get the EXCLUSIVE details on her emotional reaction here.
Taylor Swift, 26, made a major statement by donating $250,000 to Kesha after she lost her lawsuit against Dr. Luke and Sony, and HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on how the “Tik Tok” singer feels about it. Hint: She’s obviously beyond grateful for the outpouring of support.
“Kesha’s emotions have been all over the place and the outpouring of support has meant more than anything,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She is blown away by everyone’s words, support and the donation. That was the icing on the cake. It was an absolutely is incredible for Kesha to have so many kind gestures being done for her. Many tears have been shed.”
After Kesha’s mom revealed that Taylor had made the generous monetary contribution, the 26-year-old’s rep confirmed that the money was to “help with any of [Kesha’s] financial needs during this trying time.” Kesha faced a majorly devastating blow on Feb. 19, when a judge ruled that she could not break her contract with Sony, even though her alleged rapist and longtime producer, Dr. Luke, is also employed by the company.

Unfortunately, Taylor’s sweet gesture wound up creating a bit of a stir online after Demi Lovato, 23, seemingly threw MAJOR shade at her for the donation. “Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I’ll be impressed,” she tweeted. Of course, Swifties immediately began attacking her for turning the attention on herself, but Demi fired back quickly.
“How the f**k am I making this about myself? At least I’m talking about it,” she wrote back to a commenter. “Not everyone has 250k to just give to people. Would love to but I didn’t grow up with money and def haven’t made as much as her. At least I speak up about s**t that’s uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7. There’s no ‘rivalry’ I just give more f***s than other people and would rather start dialogue about WOMEN COMING FORWARD ABOUT BEING RAPED than throw money at one person. I didn’t shade Taylor.” WHOAAA!
