Now, after the Friday ruling that excused Swift from a former radio DJ's defamation case against the singer, Kesha is coming out to support her friend on Twitter.

On Monday she tweeted at Swift: "I support you always, and especially right now and admire your strength and fearlessness. Truth is always the answer."
The women's cases share a disturbing common thread— both involve claims of sexual assault.

Last year Kesha sought to break her record contract after alleging that Dr. Luke abused her physically, sexually, and emotionally during their time working together. After the singer's request was denied, Swift reached out in the form of financial aid, donating $250,000 to help cover Kesha's legal bills. On Friday, Kesha released her long-awaited third album Rainbow.
And in 2015, Swift was sued for defamation by former KYGO-FM DJ Dave Mueller who claims he lost his job with the station after the singer alleged that Mueller groped her during a radio event in 2013. Swift's countersuit against the former DJ for assault and battery will move forward.
Per Entertainment Weekly, the singer's lawsuit reads: "Resolution of this Counterclaim will demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of this humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms. Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts."
Additionally, according to People, the filling claims that any money won from her case against Mueller will be donated to a "charitable organization dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard."
