A lawyer representing Sony has weighed in on the lawsuit Kesha has filed against Dr. Luke.
The singer has accused the producer, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, of sexual assault and filed a lawsuit in 2014 against his Kemosabe Records, under Sony Music, in an effort to get out of her recording contract. He has denied the allegations.
"Sony has made it possible for Kesha to record without any connection, involvement or interaction with Luke whatsoever, but Sony is not in a position to terminate the contractual relationship between Luke and Kesha," Scott A. Edelman told the New York Times. "Sony is doing everything it can to support the artist in these circumstances, but is legally unable to terminate the contract to which it is not a party."
A judge ruled Friday that Kesha must remain with Sony to finish out her contract, but doesn't have to work with Dr. Luke. According to the contract, the singer is required to record six more albums.
On Wednesday, the singer cancelled a scheduled performance at Colossus 2016, an event annually put on by Loyola University Chicago in Illinois. The university's Department of Programming announced the news Wednesday in a statement on Facebook, saying that Kesha cancelled the Friday performance "due to personal reasons."
"Kesha has expressed her disappointment in having to cancel, but she feels that this is the best decision for her at this time," the statement continued. "We respect her decision and wish her well."
Loyola University Chicago is offering refunds to concertgoers.
Since the judge's ruling last week, Kesha has garnered support from other musicians, including Taylor Swift, who donated $250,000 to assist her. Lady Gaga also posted a photo Wednesday of her holding hands with Kesha, with the caption: "Free Kesha."
After thanking her management and her record label, Adele told the awards show crowd, "I'd also like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha."
Kesha has continually taken to social media to thank her supporters and fans.
On Instagram Tuesday she wrote, "I am beyond words in gratitude. thank you is not enough but it is all I have. a million times over and forever thank you. the support I have received has left my face swollen from tears. I love you all so much."
