Kesha has thanked those who have supported her amid her legal battle with Dr. Luke in an emotional new Instagram post.

The singer, 28, took to her Instagram account on Tuesday, sharing: "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." She added that a statement "too large for this format is coming."

Kesha's request for a preliminary injunction that would allow her to record and release music without Dr. Luke, 42, was denied by a New York Supreme Court judge on Friday, prompting fans and celebrities to publicly show their support for the singer.



Meanwhile Dr. Luke spoke out on Twitter against the singer's claims on Monday, denying allegations that he drugged and raped her.

"I didn't rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister. Kesha has denied under oath the horrible allegations now being made against me," he wrote.

"Imagine if you or somebody you loved was publicly accused of a rape you knew they didn't do. Imagine that," he continued. "I have 3 sisters, a daughter, and a son with my girlfriend, and a feminist mom who raised me right. Kesha and I made a lot of songs together and it was often good but there were creative differences at times."

"It's sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue. But I feel confident when this is over the lies will be exposed and the truth will prevail."

After the injunction was denied on Friday, artists like Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga and more chimed in on Twitter with their support for the "Timber" singer. Taylor Swift also donated $250,000 to Kesha.

Actress Lena Dunham also defended the star in an emotional essay, saying she "felt sick" when she heard about the court ruling.
