Kesha has thanked everyone for their support after she was denied release from her Sony Music contract.

The Tik Tok hitmaker appeared in court on Friday where she hoped she'd be granted an injunction so she could be released from producer Dr. Luke's record label after she claimed he sexually abused her for a number of years.

After a New York Supreme Court judge refused to free her from the contract, several pop stars including Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande and Lorde took to Twitter with kind words for the singer after she broke down in tears.

Taking to her social networking site, she wrote: "thank you for all the support in my legal case animals. i love all of you. it's meant the world to me. xoxo (sic)"


Hours after the news broke, Gaga jumped to the singer's defence, tweeting: "There are people all over the world who love you @KeshaRose. And I can say truly I am in awe of your bravery."

And Royals singer Lorde was also keen to show her support for the 28-year-old beauty at this "deeply unfair time".

She wrote: "Standing with @KeshaRose through this traumatic, deeply unfair time. Send good vibes her way everyone."

Pop beauty Ariana Grande, 22, also reached out to the star, while British singer Lily Allen and Australian rapper Iggy Azalea passed on their condolences.

Lily wrote: "My thoughts are with @KeshaRose today. I'm sorry you've had to endure this experience."

And Iggy added: "I'm not accusing anyone of anything, but I believe Kesha deserves the ability to move forward, create and earn a living (sic)."
