Kesha won’t be performing at this year’s Billboard Music Awards any longer, according to US reports.
The singer was due to take to the stage on Sunday where it was reported she would be making a “statement performance” and would be addressing her well-documented sexual assault case with Dr Luke.
But Kemosabe Records – Dr Luke’s label – has now down a U-turn after reportedly getting wind of what she had planned.
A statement from Dick Clark productions, who is producing the awards show, read: “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“Kemosabe subsequently rescinded its approval following a media report on Wednesday May 11 regarding Kesha’s appearance on the BBMAs.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.”
It continued: “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 22nd.”
According to TMZ, the singer could still perform but wouldn’t be singing her own sings.
