Uh oh! We totally didn’t expect a feud to pop up between Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato over who is the bigger supporter of Kesha in her fight to be released from her Sony music contract But HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY whose side Selena Gomez is on!
It’s great that so many female singers are coming out in support of Kesha, 28, following her devastating legal setback in her attempt to get out of her six album deal with Sony. But one ugly side effect of the outpouring of love is the unexpected shade that Demi Lovato, 23, threw Taylor Swift‘s way after the 26-year-old made a super generous financial donation to her pal. HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Tay’s BFF Selena Gomez, 23, has some pretty strong feelings about the situation.
“Selena isn’t about to take sides publicly, but she supports Taylor 100%. She thinks Taylor’s $250,000 donation to Kesha speaks for itself. She knows Taylor has beautiful heart and feels like it’s not necessary for her to verbalize her thoughts about the whole Kesha/Dr. Luke ordeal,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Donating money was Taylor’s way of communicating how she feels about the sad situation for Kesha.”
But what seemed like such a generous gesture actually caused controversy when Demi called her out for not speaking up enough on Kesha’s battle against her former collaborator, who she has accused of raping her. “Selena isn’t quite sure why Demi felt a need to make her opinions public, rather than contact Taylor privately. Selena has no plans voicing her thoughts about this matter publicly. That said, she thinks Taylor is s rockstar for being such a loyal friend to Kesha,” our insider adds.

The totally random feud began after Taylor’s rep announced she donated $250,000 to Kesha to help out with financial costs, but Demi was totally not feeling it, tweeting out “Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I’ll be impressed.” While she didn’t mention Taylor by name, it’s pretty clear that is was a major diss and seems like something strange to get in a Twitter was about.
HollywoodLifers, do you think it was wrong of Demi to say Taylor’s donation to Kesha wasn’t enough of a support gesture?
