Kesha Denied Release from Contract Despite Claims of Rape

Add Taylor Swift to the list of A-listers who have come to the defense of pop star Kesha. On Friday, a court denied the singer's request for a temporary injunction to abolish her exclusive Sony record contract with music producer Dr. Luke, who Kesha claims emotionally, sexually and physically abused her during their 10-year working relationship.

A rep for Swift confirms to Mashable reports that Swift has donated a huge chunk of money to Kesha. The rep said, via email, "In a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time."

Swift's donation comes after a tweetstorm by singer Demi Lovato who, some say, was making a subtle reference to Swift when she posted the below tweets.

Swift made some waves last Monday at The Grammy Awards when, during her acceptance speech for her Album of the Year award, she apparently fired back at frenemy Kanye West over a controversial line on his new album in which he proclaims, about to Swift to have, "made that bitch famous."

Said Swift:

"As the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you're going, you'll look around and you'll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."

The representative for Swift had no further comment on the singer's donation to Kesha.
