Kesha net worth: Kesha is an American singer and songwriter who has a net worth of $500 thousand. Kesha is one of the most talked-about entertainers working today. Kesha got her first big break in the music business at the age of 18 when she was first signed record contract with Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Entertainment. A career in music probably wasn't the biggest surprise in Kesha's life, since her mother is professional songwriter Pebe Sebert. Kesha's big breakthrough came in the form of an appearance on single "Right Round" in 2009 alongside rapper Flo Rida. Later that year, her debut single "Tik Tok" launched her own career into the stratosphere. Kesha's first full-length album "Animal" debuted at number one in the United States, Canada and Greece. With a wide range of stated musical influences including everyone from Dolly Parton to The Beastie Boys to Iggy Pop, her versatile (though grating to some) musical style might have real longevity, leading to more hit singles, albums, and concerts. Her second studio album "Warrior" was released in December 2012. Kesha also draws inspiration from the world of film, with imagery in her music videos and concerts being strongly reminiscent of movies like A Clockwork Orange. In October 2013, Kesha and Pitbull released the single "Timber" which went on to become a massive international hit and her third #1 single.
War With Dr. Luke
In September 2013, Kesha launched a petition to get herself released from Dr. Luke's record label and management company. At the time, Kesha was upset that Dr. Luke had taken away most of the creative control on her "Warrior" album. Kesha reportedly wrote 70 songs for the album and Dr. Luke scrapped all of them. In January 2014, Kesha checked into a rehab facility to deal with an eating disorder which she would later claim was brought on by years of abuse from Luke. In October 2014, Kesha filed a lawsuit against Luke alleging sexual harassment, assault and battery, gender violence and violation of California business practices. On February 19, 2016, a New York Supreme Court justice ruled against Kesha in the lawsuit. According to documents filed in the suit, Dr. Luke's company spent $11 million to develop Kesha's career. A week after the verdict, it was revealed that Kesha had run out of money funding her lawsuit over the last few years. The revelations also allege that Dr. Luke has withheld royalties during this period leaving her with no income. A sad outcome for someone who was previously one of the highest earning musicians in the world.
