Kesha says she was offered her 'freedom' if she retracts her sexual abuse allegations
It's been nearly two months since Kesha was denied her injunction request to work outside of her contract, but she's not giving up the fight.
In an Instagram post, the singer revealed that she was allegedly offered her "freedom" if she were to publicly recant her sexual assault allegations against producer Dr. Luke (real name Lukasz Gottwald).
"I got offered my freedom if I were to lie," she wrote in the photo caption on Sunday. "I would have to apologize publicly and say that I never got raped. This is what happens behind closed doors. I will not take back the truth. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again."

Kesha and Dr. Luke have been locked in a legal battle since 2014 after she accused him of sexual assault. Dr. Luke filed a countersuit for defamation and claimed the singer was trying to get out of her contract, which requires her to release six albums under Kemosabe Records, Dr. Luke's label owned by Sony.

Kesha's injunction request, which was denied in February, would have allowed her to work outside of her contract while the case is ongoing. The singer hasn't released music since 2013.
Fans and celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Adele, Lena Dunham, Taylor Swift, and Demi Lovato, have lent their support to the artist during her legal battle.
