Kesha gets by with a little help from her fans.

The 29-year-old pop star thanked her audience for their support on Thursday night during the Brooklyn stop on her Kesha and The Creepies "F**k the World Tour," bringing up her ongoing lawsuit with producer Dr. Luke.

"I honestly don't know if I would have made it the past few years without you guys, some of you may know I'm in a lawsuit," she said. "Thank you for standing by me."

Kesha's legal drama stems back to October 2014, when the singer accused her longtime mentor of drugging and raping her, as well as abusing her over the course of 10 years. Dr. Luke has vehemently denied all wrongdoing and filed a countersuit that accused Kesha and her mother, Pebe Sebert, of attempting to "extort" him into releasing her from her record contract.

In February 2016, a New York Supreme Court Judge denied Kesha's request to be let out of her contract with Sony Music. Months later, Kesha dropped her sexual assault case against Dr. Luke in California to focus on creating new music. However, she continues to "fight for my rights" in her New York suit against him.

Earlier this month, Dr. Luke filed a second defamation lawsuit against Kesha's mother.

"I could not do this without you so f---ing thank you. I can't share my new music with you. Keep praying, someday it will come. I can't wait for that," Kesha told concertgoers on Thursday. "No one can own you. Because to truly own you means to own your happiness. No one can own your f---ing happiness."

For good measure, Kesha added: "Ain't nobody got time for hate. Always have hope in your heart. I do!"

At one point in the night, Kesha became visibly emotional by her fans' cheers of support. "You made me cry," she said, choking up. "Thank you for standing with me through all of this."

Though she can't share her new music quite yet, Kesha has been teasing her progress on Instagram. The "Tik Tok" singer sent her followers into a frenzy last week when she hinted at a high profile collaboration. Get the story in the player below.
