Kesha Posts 'Grateful' Statement: 'This Issue Is Bigger Than Just About Me'
Kesha posted a lengthy statement on her Facebook page Wednesday afternoon (Feb. 24), following an outpouring of support over her denied injunction bid in court last Friday.
"I'm so, so beyond humbled and thankful for all of the support I've received from everyone," she began. "Words cannot really express the emotions I've gone through reading and seeing how amazing everyone has been to me. I can’t believe that so many people all over the world took the time to show me support and love. Other entertainers who knowingly put their own careers at stake by supporting me, I will be forever grateful."
Kesha also noted that she wants survivors of sexual assault to feel brave about speaking out. "At this point, this issue is bigger than just about me," she notes.
"We're all in this together. You are not alone. I love you and thank you," she concluded.

On Tuesday, Kesha shared 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."
Dr. Luke's lawyers recently released a statement, seemingly in response to the popular #FreeKesha hashtag, that read, "The New York County Supreme Court on Friday found that Kesha is already 'free' to record and release music without working with Dr. Luke as a producer if she doesn’t want to. Any claim that she isn’t 'free' is a myth."
Update: Dr. Luke's lawyer Christina Lepara gave Billboard the following statement. "Tellingly, Kesha continues to evade the under oath sworn testimony of no abuse from her and her mother – and the video of their testimony speaks a thousand words."
