Dr. Luke Blocks Kesha from Performing at the Billboard Music Awards
It looks like Kesha will not be performing at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday after all.
“Extra” received a statement from Dick Clark Productions announcing that Dr. Luke's label Kemosabe Records won't allow Kesha to sing at the awards show.
The statement explained, “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 Kemosabe subsequently rescinded its approval following a media report on Wednesday, May 11th regarding Kesha's appearance on the BBMAs.”
Dick Clark Productions further explained that Kesha and Kemosabe failed to reach an agreement, but there is still hope.
TMZ had previously reported that Kesha planned to address her ongoing battle with Dr. Luke during her performance.
