Pop star Britney Spears has sent a message of support to the #FreeBritney campaign – who want to see Kesha’s “abuse” of radio stations and producers who let her record music removed.

Spears was a vocal supporter of Kesha’s record deal breakup and social media campaign.

She tweeted: “You guys saved my life! Thank you for standing by me and believing in me even when I didn’t believe in myself.

“I love you!”

In 2012, Kesha accused Dr Luke – who produced hits for Spears like Till The World Ends – of sexual abuse. He denies her allegations.

Kesha claimed Sony was doing nothing to stop her being “persecuted”, having artists signed over for Dr Luke’s record label.

Just last week, a judge lifted Kesha’s restraining order which was issued after she complained that Sony was responsible for her continued contracts with Dr Luke’s label.

The judge said Kesha did not have to give Sony consent, because of a California law that prohibits giving releases when artists are minors.

Spears, 37, turned pro-Kesha after her long-time manager Larry Rudolph and her family backed the singer and helped organise the protest in support of Kesha.

Spears, along with Katy Perry, who also criticised Dr Luke, and Kelly Clarkson, among others, appeared in videos with Kesha in which they discussed “sexual assault”.

The protest in Los Angeles, in a video posted on social media, marked the one-year anniversary of Kesha’s legal battle.

Kesha faced a counter-claim from a producer that she had raped him, which she denied.
