Kesha Cancels Performance at Loyola University Chicago

Kesha is no longer performing at Loyola University on Friday.

The singer was to appear at the school one week after a New York judge denied the pop star’s bid to get out of a contract with the record producer she says sexually abused her.

A note on the school's website said the singer will not be performing due to "personal reasons."

"Kesha has expressed her disappointment in having to cancel, but she feels that this is the best decision for her at this time," the note read. "We respect her decision and wish her well."

Despite the cancellation, students will still hold a rally in support of the “Tik Tok” singer, with many using the hashtag #loyolawithkesha on social media. 

A judge ruled Kesha is still required to make three more albums with hit producer Dr. Luke, a man she says drugged, sexually abused and psychologically tormented her. Dr. Luke and his attorneys say the singer is trying to force him to let her leave the contract.

Dr. Luke, born Lukasz Gottwald, has not been charged with any crime. Both sides are also seeking unspecified damages.

Artists such as Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, and Demi Lovato have expressed support for Kesha on social media.
