Kesha was scheduled to perform at the the 2016 Billboard Music Awards but that opportunity might be in danger. There seems to be yet another problem with her label, Kemosabe Records, headed by Dr. Luke, a man she once accused of raping her. Kesha needed written permission from the label to perform at the show, received it, but the label rescinded the agreement.
“Kesha accepted an invitation to perform on the show and she received written approval from Dr. Luke’s record label, Kemosabe Records,” dick clark productions said in a statement. “Kemosabe subsequently rescinded its approval following a media report on Wednesday May 11 regarding Kesha’s appearance on the BBMAs. Unfortunately, Kesha and Kemosabe have since been unable to come to an agreement for Kesha to perform on the show.”
While her status as a performer is currently up the air, they’re hoping that the problem will be fixed before the awards begins on May 22nd.
Kesha’s been involved in a long and sordid disagreement with Dr. Luke and Kemosabe records. Kesha accused Dr. Luke of raping her, an accusation he’s vehemently shot down. Once, her mom came out and said Kesha was “Dr. Luke’s prisoner.” Kesha later tried to file an injunction, in order to free her from her contractual obligations with Dr. Luke, but it was denied.
