Taylor Swift has shown her support for fellow artist Kesha (formerly known as Ke$ha), who's in the middle of a court battle with producer Dr. Luke.

Swift donated $250,000 to Kesha after a New York judge denied her the right to record for a label other than Sony Music. A Swift spokesperson said the money will help defray Kesha's financial losses. Kesha has said that her producer, Dr. Luke, raped her. He denied the allegations in a Feb. 22 statement.
