There's been a major halt in the #FreeKesha movement. On Friday (February 19), Kesha's request for an injunction against her alleged abuser/producer Dr. Luke was denied at the New York State Supreme Courthouse.
The singer, who claims that the super-producer drugged and raped her sometime within their decade-long working relationship, has been pushing for a preliminary injunction to work with anybody aside from her alleged abuser. Still, New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich wasn't completely convinced of her arguments even though her attorneys insisted that her time away from the spotlight would soon result in pop irrelevancy.
"You're asking the court to decimate a contract that was heavily negotiated and typical for the industry," the judge said to Kesha's attorney, Mark Geragos.
Justice Kornreich's also heard arguments that Dr. Luke has invested $60 million in her career and has agreed to let her record without his involvement, which basically botches her argument. "My instinct is to do the commercially reasonable thing," she said according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Stay tuned for more updates on the case as well as an on-site report with word from Kesha's fans.
