Kesha (born March 1st 1987) is a pop singer best known for hits such as 'Tik Tok', 'Die Young' and appearing on Pitbull's 'Timber'.
Net Worth: Kesha has a net worth of $40 million according to Celebrity Net Worth (2015).
Childhood: Kesha was born in LA with her singer mother Pebe. They had little money and she didn't know the identity of her father. She moved to Nashville as a child and discovered her own love of music, though admits she struggled to fit in at school where she joined the marching band. She went to Franklin High School and Brentwood High School while co-writing demos with her mother. She is a global ambassador for animal rights organisation the Humane Society of the United States.
Career: At 16, Kesha and her mother's song 'Stephen' was produced by David Gamson and soon after she left school for the music industry on the advice of Dr. Luke and Max Martin. In 2005, she and her mother later took part in a reality series called 'The Simple Life' in which their house played host to Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. That year she signed to Dr. Luke's label Kemosabe Entertainment with one of her first professional ventures being featuring on Paris Hilton's 'Nothing in This World'. She later signed to DAS Communications Inc., during which time she co-wrote The Veronicas single 'This Love' and made her living as a waitress. In 2008, she was in Katy Perry's 'I Kissed a Girl' video and appeared in Britney Spears' 'Lace and Leather' song. Her breakthrough came with featuring on Flo Rida's 2009 single 'Right Round'. That year she signed to RCA Records and in 2010 she released her number one debut album 'Animal' which featured the singles 'Tik Tok', 'Your Love Is My Drug' and 'Blah Blah Blah' feat. 3OH!3. The song broke the record for biggest one week sales and was at number one for nine weeks. A lawsuit was later filed against her by DAS Communications Inc., who wanted $14 million from her and $12 million from producer Dr. Luke for commissions, suggesting that she was still affiliated with them. She failed a lawsuit against them in return, claiming that it was an unlicensed agent who had her signed to DAS. In 2010, she also joined Rihanna on her Last Girl On Earth Tour and released her Gold certified EP 'Cannibal' featuring the number one hit 'We R Who We R'. Her first headline world tour was entitled 'Get Sleazy' and kicked off in 2011. That year, Alice Cooper invited her to work on a track entitled 'What Baby Wants'. In 2012, she released her second album 'Warrior' featuring the singles 'Die Young' and 'C'Mon', though she began to underperform in the charts. She hit the road again for her 'Warrior' tour alongside Pitbull. During this time she released a visual autobiography entitled 'My Crazy Beautiful Life', which was later turned into a documentary. In 2013, fans began to get angry over Kesha's lack of control over her music, with Dr. Luke being at the helm of 'Warrior' - especially as her chart performance began to drop. However, he later produced Pitbull and Kesha's song 'Timber' which became a number one hit.
Personal Life: In 2014, Kesha underwent treatment in rehab for bulimia nervosa - a condition which allegedly arose out of Dr. Luke's comments about her weight. That year she sued the producer for a string of offences such as sexual assault and harassment and asked for their contract to be broken. He launched his own lawsuit against her for defamation.
The singer has got back to live performing in recent months as her legal battle with Dr Luke continues.
Singer Kesha has announced she’ll be performing a three night mini-residency at Las Vegas club Intrigue later this month. The 29-year-old is still embroiled in an ongoing legal battle with producer Dr Luke and record label Sony, but in recent months she’s made a return to live performing.

This was probably one of the most special Billboard award shows ever.
The 2016 Billboard Music Awards took place yesterday (May 22nd 2016) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with Canadian singer The Weeknd taking home no less than eight gongs for his work over the past year. Adele also won big, though her five accolades were meagre compared to her R&B counterpart.
The Weeknd takes home eight awards
The Weeknd - real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye - landed almost more awards than he could carry. The prizes for Top Hot 100 Artist, Song Sales Artist, Radio Songs Artist, Streaming Songs Artist and Top R&B Artist were all presented to him, as was the Top R&B Song and Streaming Song for his number one platinum single 'The Hills' and the Top R&B Album for his second album 'Beauty Behind the Madness' released last year.
Two days ago, Dr. Luke's record label Kemosabe had blocked Kesha's planned performance at Sunday night's ceremony.
Kesha’s performance at this weekend’s Billboard Music Awards are back on, following a reversal of the decision taken by Dr. Luke’s record label earlier this week.
On Tuesday (May 17th), the under-fire producer’s record label Kemosabe withdrew permission for Kesha to perform at Sunday night’s Billboard Awards ceremony after it learned that she was planning to use her appearance to reference the ongoing court proceedings between them.
However, a little over a day later, Kesha’s performance is back on after the label obtained assurances that she would not do so.

The singer was due to perform a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’ at the ceremony on Sunday.
Singer Kesha has spoken out after her performance at this year’s Billboard Music Awards was cancelled when Dr Luke’s record label Kemosabe Records withdrew their support. Kesha was due to perform a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’ at the ceremony on May 22nd, but it had been previously reported that the performance would include ‘direct references to her ongoing legal battle with Dr Luke’.
Kesha will no longer be performing at the Billboard Music Awards.
On Instagram Kesha wrote: "I was very excited to perform a tribute to Bob Dylan by singing a cover of "It ain't me, babe" at the Billboard awards this year. I'm very sad and sorry to say I won't be allowed to do this.”
So far, the judge has kept the case on hold.
Things are getting a little complicated in the legal proceedings between Kesha and Dr. Luke, because now she's planning to go full steam ahead with claims she made against Luke in Los Angeles, alleging that he subjected her to physical, emotional and sexual assault. The case had originally been put on hold, pending the outcome of her New York dispute which, sadly, saw her remaining chained to her contract with Kemosabe Records.
Kesha is trying to lift the hold on her LA court claims
Unfortunately, the judge has decided to keep the case on hold for now, despite Kesha's attorneys claiming that they have made significant amendments to the original claim. This heartbreaking decision comes just a day after Kesha posted a positive message to her Instagram followers.

We're so glad we didn't have to wait too long for this. Zedd and Kesha have just unveiled the latter's first single in three years; a remix of the DJ's song 'True Colors' which Coachella Festival goers will have heard on the first weekend of the event when they collaborated during Zedd's set.
Kesha is back in business with 'True Colors'

Sebert had countersued Dr. Luke for infliction of emotional distress after he had sued her for defamation, by allegedly spreading rumours that he sexually assaulted Kesha to the press.
The complicated and seemingly endless dispute between Kesha and her erstwhile producer Lukas Gottwald (aka. Dr. Luke), but one aspect of it appears to have been ended after Kesha’s mother dropped her counterclaims against him this week.
This particular part of the case started in Tennessee, where Dr. Luke originally sued the pop star’s mother, Pebe Sebert, for defamation and tortious interference. According to him, she had “smeared” him by circulating rumours that he raped Kesha to bloggers and the press after an alleged extortion attempt, which he says Kesha and her mother concocted together, over a contractual disagreement failed.
In turn, Pebe Sebert countersued on the basis of intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, and it is this countersuit that she withdrew on Tuesday (April 26th), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
