KE$HA's former managers are pushing for a resoluTIon to their ongoing legal battle with the pop star - in case she squanders her fortune and can't afford a pay-out.
The TiK ToK hitmaker is facing legal action from her former representatives at DAS Communications, who are suing for $14 million (£9.3 million) over allegations she owes them commission for unlawfully terminating her contract before she signed a major music deal.
In new papers filed at New York's Manhattan Supreme Court, DAS bosses suggest the star may be delaying the case - and they fear she may be broke by the time the matter is resolved.
The documents, obtained by the New York Post, state: "(Ke$ha) is a very young and inexperienced artist whose 'star' may not continue to rise.
"Although she has made an incredible amount of money in a very short period of time, in large part due to DAS' efforts on her behalf, she could just as easily lose money if not properly guided."
Ke$ha is countersuing, claiming bosses at DAS Communications acted unlawfully during her time at the firm because they allegedly booked her a string of jobs in California without the proper paperwork.
