Kesha's legal bid to be released from her recording contract with Sony Records and music producer Dr. Luke — who she claimed abused her sexually, physically and emotionally during their 10-year working relationship — was denied by a Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday.
The "Tik Tok" singer reportedly broke down in tears at the ruling, which denied her request for a temporary injunction that would have nullified her Sony contract. Kesha is obligated to make six more records with the company.

Kesha Rose Sebert, 28, alleged in an October 2014 lawsuit in Los Angeles that producer Dr. Luke — full name Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald — began a pattern of abuse, intimidation and control after he plucked her out of obscurity at age 18. Dr. Luke filed a counter-claim in New York alleging defamation and breach of contract.
Kesha says she's afraid to continue working with Dr. Luke, who holds her exclusive contract at his Kemosabe label under Sony. She also claims that Sony will not promote her if she works with another producer.
At the Friday hearing in Manhattan Supreme Court, Justice Shirley Kornreich ruled that the state's contract laws did not allow for a dissolution under the circumstances. Kesha reportedly broke down in tears following the ruling.
