Kesha Speaks To Her Supporters For The First Time

by Olivia Harrison

After an unbelievable outpouring of support from both celebrities and fans, Kesha released a statement of gratitude last night via Instagram. She wrote, “I am beyond words in gratitude. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. A million times over and forever thank you. The support I have received has left my face swollen from tears. I love you all so much.” The statement accompanied a photo of the singer with a puffy face, but still looking beyond beautiful, I might add. 


This Instagram post is the first time Kesha has addressed fans since her request for a preliminary injunction was denied. The injunction would have released her from her contract with producer Dr. Luke and allowed her to record music elsewhere. The request, of course, followed a lawsuit Kesha filed against her producer for alleged sexual and emotional abuse spanning nearly a decade. In her Instagram post, Kesha also wrote that she would be releasing a formal statement soon.
