Kesha Won't Perform at Billboard Music Awards After Dr. Luke's Label Rescinds Approval

Kesha's ongoing legal troubles may be keeping her from performing at the Billboard Music Awards.

After reports surfaced last week that the 29-year-old singer was planning a "statement performance" aimed at music producer Dr. Luke, dick clark productions -- which puts on the event -- told ET in a statement on Tuesday that her appearance may be in jeopardy.

"We have received numerous inquiries as to whether or not Kesha is performing on the 2016 Billboard Music Awards," the statement read. "Kesha accepted an invitation to perform on the show and she received written approval from Dr. Luke's record label, Kemosabe Records."

"Kemosabe subsequently rescinded its approval following a media report on Wednesday, May 11th regarding Kesha's appearance on the BBMAs," it continued. "Unfortunately, Kesha and Kemosabe have since been unable to come to an agreement for Kesha to perform on the show."

The news comes after Kesha's sexual assault case against Dr. Luke was put on hold until the singer resolves her breach of contract lawsuit in New York. Kesha accuses Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwalkd, of drugging and raping her, claims the producer has denied as "outright lies."

On Sunday, Kesha shared a photo on Instagram candidly addressing her struggles with depression and an eating disorder, vowing, "I have decided to take my life back."
