"The love and support this year has brought me to tears many times," the pop star tells her fans on Twitter.

In the first few days of 2014, Kesha checked into rehab for an eating disorder, where she spent two months and eventually emerged with a new outlook on life and the dollar sign dropped from her name. Months later, Kesha sued longtime producer Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald for emotional abuse and an instance of sexual assault, a legal battle that is still ongoing.

On Christmas (Dec. 25), Kesha acknowledged her turbulent 2014, thanking fans on Twitter for sticking by the "TiK ToK" singer.

"Been a crazy. crazy year," Kesha wrote. "But I'm so thankful for u … the love and support this year has brought me to tears many times."



On the plus side, 2014 brought Kesha another No. 1 single -- as a featured artist on Pitbull's smash "Timber" -- as well as a stint as a judge on ABC's Rising Star. However, the singer's battle with Dr. Luke will no doubt spill into 2015: according to TMZ, the super-producer now claims that Kesha lied in 2012 about wanting to change the lyrics of her hit "Die Young" before the Sandy Hook shootings in 2012.
