Kesha has appeared in court in New York as part of her long-running legal dispute with music producer Dr Luke.

The singer filed a lawsuit against Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, in 2014.

She claimed the 41-year-old drugged, sexually abused and psychologically tormented her. He denies the claims.

The allegations date back to 2005, soon after she signed with him, when she was 18.

According to Buzzfeed, Judge Shirley Kornreich denied Kesha’s request to leave the label claiming: “There has been no showing of irreparable harm.”

Kesha reportedly cried as the verdict was announced, while fans gathered outside the court to support her.

They held banners showing the #FreeKesha slogan which has spread over social media.

More than 119,000 people have signed an online petition to Sony Music President Doug Morris to allow her not to work with Dr Luke.
