To say that Kesha has had a rough year seems like a bit of an understatement.
Despite Kesha taking to Instagram to share that her number at the award show was not going to address her history with the producer and simply be a tribute to Bob Dylan, it looks like she’s one act that we’ll have to miss.
But what puzzles us is that a source told People the 29-year-old wrote to Dr. L about the performance before he canceled it! The insider dished:
“Kesha wrote a statement to Luke yesterday and told him the performance wasn’t about him at all. He had a full day to consider, but still wouldn’t allow her to perform.”
Though this wouldn’t really surprise us, another source has shot that claim down, saying the letter is “an urban myth.”
Dick Clark Productions also released a statement regarding the entire ordeal as they outlined their stance saying:
“Kesha accepted an invitation to perform on the show and she received written approval from Dr. Luke’s record label, Kemosabe Records. Kemosabe subsequently rescinded its approval following a media report on Wednesday, May 11 regarding Kesha’s appearance on the BBMAs. Unfortunately, Kesha and Kemosabe have since been unable to come to an agreement for Kesha to perform on the show. Dick Clark productions has a long standing relationship with Kesha. We hope that the parties can come to an arrangement such that we can continue that long standing relationship with a performance by Kesha on the Billboard Music Awards stage on May 22.”
Sadly, it looks like this won’t be patched up soon enough for us to see Kesha perform…
Do you believe she really wrote Dr. Luke a letter?!
