Taylor Swift gifts $250k to Kesha in 'show of support'

Taylor Swift has given Kesha $250,000 (£175,000) to help fund her court battle with Dr. Luke.

Last week the US star failed in a bid to be removed from a contract with the producer, who she claims drugged and raped her.

In October 2014, Kesha filed a lawsuit alleging "mental manipulation, emotional abuse and sexual assault" at hands of the producer, who first worked with her ten years ago.

Swift has now given the embattled singer $250,000 as she ponders her next step.

A rep for the '1989' star said: "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."

Kesha has experienced an outpouring of support since her injunction was blocked, with Lady Gaga writing on Twitter:

"There are people all over the world who love you @KeshaRose. And I can say truly I am in awe of your bravery."
