On Friday, a judge denied Kesha's attempt to leave her contract with her producer and alleged physical, sexual, and emotional abuser Dr. Luke. Dozens of her fans congregated outside of the court house where the hearing took place to support the singer, and hundreds more took to Twitter to protest the loss. Taylor Swift is now joining the fight, with her spokesperson announcing that "in a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time." At time of writing, Swift has not yet posted or tweeted anything in support of Kesha's ordeal. A rep for Kesha did not immediately reply with comment.
