Kesha took to Instagram to thank her fans for their support after it was ruled by a court that she cannot leave her contract with Sony Music despite allegations she was sexually abused by producer Dr. Luke.

The 'Tik Tok' hitmaker had asked to be allowed to be dropped from her contract with Sony Music after she made allegations she was sexually abused by producer Dr. Luke but was denied at the hearing on Friday (19.02.16).

She wrote on Instagram: "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. a statement too large for this format is coming.... (sic)"

Meanwhile, a number of celebrities have come out to support Kesha, including 'Girls' star Lena Dunham who admits she "felt sick" on hearing the news.

She said: "When I saw the outcome of Kesha's court case last Friday, I felt sick. Actually sick - I wanted to ask my Uber to pull over so I could throw up in a New York City trash can.

"Sony could make this go away. But instead the company has chosen to engage in a protracted legal battle to protect Gottwald's [Dr. Luke's] stake in Kesha's future. 

"Although the company insists that Kesha and Gottwald never need to be in a room together and that he will allow her to record without his direct involvement, they are minimizing what Kesha says regarding how Gottwald's continued involvement in her career would affect her physical well-being and psychological safety."
