Kesha’s Mom: Taylor Swift Is A “Truly Rich Person”
As Gossip Cop reported, a rep for Swift confirmed to us on Sunday night that she had made a $250,000 donation to Kesha to “to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time.” The donation comes in the wake of a New York judge refusing Kesha’s request for an injunction to break her contract with Sony and Dr. Luke, whom she has accused of verbal and sexual abuse. The judge ruled that Kesha must still work under the producer’s label, in according with her contract, as their dueling lawsuits about the alleged abuse continue to unfold.
Kesha’s mom, who has been retweeting stars who have voiced support for her daughter during this ordeal, took to Twitter late Sunday to commend Swift for helping out financially. Sebert first wrote, “Taylor Swift has just generously donated $250,000 to Kesha, as a show of support during this difficult time. AMAZING!!”
She went on, “A persons wealth is not measured by what they have but by WHO they they [sic] help with it. And Taylor Swift is is [sic] a truly RICH PERSON. Thank you.” Sebert went on, “Most important for Kesha, is that these beautiful, powerful women are standing behind her, letting the world see how powerful the truth is!”
Swift has not mentioned her donation on social media, even as Demi Lovato has posted several messages on Twitter and Instagram criticizing her for using money to help Kesha rather than using her powerful voice to shine a spotlight on the more general issue of rape. Swift has not responded to the criticism, and Kesha herself has not publicly acknowledged the donation.
