Kesha Breaks Her Silence With Moving Statement To Victims Of Sexual Abuse
This is the first time she's spoken since the trial.
Kesha has spoken out for the first time since losing her court case to Dr. Luke, the producer who allegedly drugged and raped her.
Thanking the artists who have expressed their support so far, the singer encourages those who have been victims of abuse to not be afraid to speak out, even if their abuser is 'in a position of power'.
“Unfortunately I don’t think that my case is giving people who have been abused confidence that they can speak out, and that’s a problem,” she wrote.
“But I just want to say that if you have been abused, please don’t be afraid to speak out. There are places that will make you feel safe. There are people who will help you. I for one, will stand beside you and behind you. I know now how this all feels and will forever fight for you the way perfect strangers have been fighting for me.”
She also thanked the likes of Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff who are among her celebrity supporters.
“Other entertainers who knowingly put their own careers at stake by supporting me, I will be forever grateful,” she wrote.
