Last night, Kesha thanked her fans for their support as she deals with her ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke. She has now shared a lengthier Facebook message on the subject. "I'm so, so beyond humbled and thankful for all the support I've received from everyone," the singer wrote. "Other entertainers who knowingly put their own careers at stake by supporting me, I will be forever grateful.​" Kesha also said her case is not about breaking her contract from Sony, contrary to the recent statement made by Dr. Luke's lawyer. "All I ever wanted was to be able to make music without being afraid, scared, or abused. This case has never been about a renegotiation of my record contract – it was never about getting a bigger, or a better deal. This is about being free from my abuser. I would be willing to work with Sony if they do the right thing and break all ties that bind me to my abuser."

Back in 2014, Kesha filed a lawsuit against Luke for sexual assault and battery. Dr. Luke later filed his own countersuit for defamation. Just last week, a New York judge denied Kesha' request for a preliminary injunction to be released from her recording contract with Luke. The judge reserved the right to rule on whether Kesha has been abused until after her lawyer submits more evidence on the matter. Dr. Luke took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the case earlier this week. You can read Kesha's full Facebook message below.

A little after Kesha's post, Adele took the stage at the Brit Awards to accept her award for British Female Solo Artist. First, Adele took a moment to thank the other nominees in her category for allowing her to be in their company. She then went on to thank her management team and record label for "embracing the fact that I'm a woman and being encouraged by it." In a heartfelt move, Adele said, "I'd also like to take this moment to publicly supportKesha." Adele is one of many of Kesha's colleagues who have publicly voiced their support for the singer. She joins Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift​, Ariana Grande, Alessia Cara, Miley Cyrus, Halsey, and Fiona Apple, who have spoken out across social media. Jack Antonoff and Zedd have also both offered to produce new music for the singer.
