While the singer had previously been denied her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with alleged sexual abuser Dr. Luke, it appears all hope is not lost.

Sony opened up about the potential project in a statement, saying:

"Creating a new album takes time, and everyone's goal is to deliver a high quality album consistent with Kesha's past releases. We hope to share exciting new music with Kesha's fans soon."

Since her courtroom loss, the 29-year-old has released a collaboration with Zedd and teased a "f*ck off" duet with an unnamed Grammy-winner.

Plus, her legal team said back in August that the songstress had submitted almost 30 new tracks to Luke's Kemosabe Records.

And, Sony is insisting that everyone involved is working "to keep the process moving forward."

However, the TiK ToK performer's attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, isn't entirely convinced that Sony is serious, saying progress hadn't been made until after their most recent court appearance:

A former teacher was found guilty of raping a female relative when she was 13 years old — and responded to the verdict by taking out a razor blade and slitting his throat in the courtroom.

According to reports, Jeffrey Scott Jones was still in the hospital in stable condition as of Thursday afternoon, a day after he was taken away in handcuffs and bleeding from the Orange County Superior Court in California.

The 56-year-old was convicted of two felony counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of continuous sexual behavior.

Authorities say the repeated sexual abuse occurred between 2012-2013. According to the district attorney's statement, Jones "raped the victim" twice in May 2013, "stating that he would ruin her life if she told anyone what he was doing."

Jones had been a teacher for 27 years, though the victim was not one of his students. While the victim tried to defend Jones in trial, the prosecution gave evidence showing the teacher also had sex with two minor former students.

District attorney chief of staff Susan Kang Schroeder told People:

Another victory for Taylor Swift!

Earlier this week, the pop princess asked a judge to seal photos that seem to show the sweet singer allegedly getting groped, regarding her case against a Denver DJ.

In case you don't remember, the 26-year-old is locked in a legal battle with David Mueller, who sued her for claiming he grabbed her bum at a 2013 concert.

David insists he didn't grope the superstar, but got fired as a result of the songstress' allegations. Mr. Mueller says it was actually his boss, Eddie Haskell, who felt her up.

As a result, TayTay countersued, and now, the judge has sided with the blonde beauty when it comes to those scandalous snaps.

When the former country crooner requested to seal the provocative pics, she argued that they would make it hard to select a truly impartial jury.

And, the judge agrees, saying:

Azealia Banks isn't backing down, but that doesn't mean she wants the police involved!

As you surely know, the 212 rapper has accused Russell Crowe of calling her a racial slur and choking her during an altercation at the Les Miserables star's Beverly Hills hotel room. However, countless witnesses have since discredited the New York native's account of what caused her to be kicked out of Crowe's suite.
