“In a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time,” Taylor‘s rep told Just Jared in a statement.

Kesha‘s mom Pebe Sebert also confirmed the news on Twitter.

“Taylor Swift has just generously donated $250,000. to Kesha, as a show of support during this difficult time.AMAZING!!” she tweeted. “A persons wealth is not measured by what they have but by WHO they they help with it. And Taylor Swift is is a truly RICH PERSON. Thank you🌹”

    i haven’t really followed this story but was kesha able to prove that she got raped? like did she ever file a police report? or anything? maybe that would’ve helped her get outta her contract…..without that, its kinda his word vs hers

  • Arx

    “Taylor‘s rep told Just Jared in a statement.” So you donate then release a statement about it? Taylor is fake as fuck. If this was genuine it would have been done privately. However, still gotta respect that she donated at all.

  • Revengefan0101

    I don’t understand why Sony is trying to force her to finish this contract. This is horrible PR for them.

  • Koos

    she made a point indeed: DO NOT F.CK WITH WOMEN!!

  • lakeland

    Beat me to it. I had this very same thought.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Yep… If sincere…no need to advertise. What is real and meaningful comes from the heart.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Notice how that is not addressed. Also. Sony is a bit more powerful…meaning bigger guns. And money talks, if you get my meaning. Anyone can be bought and paid for. Like Hollywood…. if it was known certain powerful people would be in serious trouble because of their actions. Read the interview for example by Corey Feldman. Like he said, if it was known…. I hope all goes well for her.

  • smmy33

    How is she fake as fuck, you dumb fuck , she actually gave money unlike everyone else who just tweeted their support

    She made it public to make a statement to the industry it wasn’t just to help a Kesha, who probably does need it .

  • http://www.paulwalkerfoundation.org RayonLight

    All of her donations come with some kind of press, sometimes I wonder if this is done by her camp or the people who she donates too are told to make it public.

  • Maggie P.U.

    True. Many will donate as “anonymous” or ask not to be named…..She can make it clear not to be mentioned.

  • Maggie P.U.

    You can donate like I said, and it is done all the time “behind closed doors”. And bet the farm it will be found out, by those who knew it was done. No media or mag or anything of the sort has to be informed unless you want it known to “beef up” the image. JMO.

    listen to Kesha‘s mom:
    “Kesha‘s mom Pebe Sebert also confirmed the news on Twitter.

    this is enuff for me

  • Sargoss Golek

    well done, T!
    and it’s an incentive for other ppl to do the same!!!
    K needs $$$ no #.
    demi…..

  • Arx

    She’s fake because its now about Taylor Swift instead of Kesha. Everyone is saying how wonderful Taylor is and not about what can ACTUALLY be done about Kesha’s situation. On another note, Kesha is a songwriter and performer, she doesn’t need money she needs out of her contract.

  • Sargoss Golek

    trolls and haters MAKE it about T:

    how much did YOU give FOR HER LEGAL FEES?

  • Arx

    Umm Kesha is a multimillionaire… Do you donate money to millionaires? Btw its ppl like you who make it about Taylor.
    “well done, T! and it’s an incentive for other ppl to do the same!! K needs $$$ no #”

  • QuietDanTN

    Arx: You are way off base. The initial discovery of the Taylor Swift donation came from Kesha’s mother, in her released thank you note. The statement from Taylor Swift’s people is what is commonly called in the industry, a “Response to Query,” which sets the record straight if a media outlet asks a question. Taylor Swift and her people NEVER send out an initiating Press Release on her charitable donations. There are hundreds of them that never see the light of day.

    Perhaps what really needs to happen here is you need to Get up off of the couch in your mommy’s basement and do something with your life, so you can feel good about yourself, instead of trying to feel good about yourself by trying to tear down one of the finest young women on the face of the planet.

  • What a laugh

    Maybe she is wanting to make a point to the world and to Sony. What Taylor did brings more attention to Kesha’s plight and puts Dr Luke and Sony in a bad light because Taylor has a lot of fans. Taylor doesn’t need the positive PR. You and @ARX are completely missing the point and probably don’t like Taylor Swift. And before you accuse me of just being a fan of Taylor you are wrong. I’m neither a fan or a hater. I think she did a very decent thing for someone who was wronged and hit where it would hurt the most. Good for her.

  • QuietDanTN

    None of Taylor Swift’s people make press releases on her charitable donations, and there are hundreds of them. The facts only see the light of day if the recipient or the family make some sort of announcement or statement of their own free will.

    Taylor’s people don’t issue press releases on her charitable giving because one, it’s the right thing to do, and two, it only feeds trolls such as yourself.

  • smmy33

    If you weren’t such a bitter jealous hag against Taylor Swift you would know.

    A) Kesha needs money to pay for lawyers, making it public might spur others to donate, instead of just tweets in support.

    B) she went up against a power producer and record company , Kesha needs others in the industry to support her publicly and nothing says support like a personal check and no one is more powerful in the industry as a artist then Taylor.

    C) she might appeal, but what she needs is Sony to let her out of her contract, and that wouldn’t happen without media pressure and public scrutiny, Taylor Swift support does just that

    D) and Taylor ALWSYS puts her money were her mouth is when she supports someone or thing and nothing whinny bitches like you say will change that.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Has nothing to do with liking or not liking. She (whoever) can make a point without putting it out there. Called a Attorney.

  • Arx

    “…finest young women on the face of the planet.” I see someone’s mouth is firmly attached to Taylor’s clit. How about you get off of Taylor puss and realize that she is a product and everything she does is calculated. Its interesting that every time Taylor donates it “leaks” to the blogs and to the news. Hmm I wonder if that has anything to do with Taylor’s PR team… If Taylor was sincere it would’ve been dealt with privately or anonymously. “…finest young women on the face of the planet.” that still has me in stitches! If Taylor was so great she would be “donating” her time to important causes instead of fucking every famous guy in hollywood and attending every award show possible.

  • What a laugh

    And as I replied to you above, this is why it being known that Taylor Swift gave this much money—power and money talk—and Taylor has both. So Sony and Dr Luke will be looked at more closely and it won’t be in a favorable manner.

  • Arx

    Fine, lets see how much changes now… Adele is more powerful but anyways enjoy your delusions.

  • YupVideoFever

    This is not the case when you do it privately. Taylor has a powerful name. And this (besides the money) will bring more attention to the issue. That costs much more.

  • What a laugh

    Nope, I see you are just not going to get it.

  • smmy33

    How do you know what money she has, her mother thanking Taylor for the donation would imply she needed it.

    Why don’t fuck off and get a life, stupid troll

  • Arx

    How do u know there are hundreds of them? I’ve seen countless posted on this site.

  • Arx

    How do you know what money she needs? Get a life and stop kissing Taylor’s ass cuz she doesn’t give a fuck about you!

  • Maggie P.U.

    Sorry you don’t agree, if she doesn’t need PR…any form of it…then why use it. She could have gone through like I said her Attorney to get in contact with Keisha or her Attorney. PR is mainly to put it out in mainstream. And I am sure, as I said before Sony would get wind of the support….without the PR. So, if anyone is missing the point it is you. Unless, which it is apparent you are a fan. Good for you. Have a good day.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Taylor is so fucking fake! Instead of speaking up about the issue she silently gives her money as a pity party. It’s isgusting! Rather be rich in love and support then money

  • smmy33

    Cause it was Adele that went against Apple and it was Adele who went against Spotify and removed her ALL her albums off the biggest free music site in the world .

    O” Adele works for Sony, while Taylor Swift practically owns Big Machine Records.

  • YupVideoFever

    Bill Cosby’s victims didn’t have any evidence as well, but they were heard after just one spoke out.. then another…and another. 35 women, who accused Bill Cosby of assault, were on the famous New York magazine cover. Kesha risked it all for a reason.

  • QuietDanTN

    You are transferring your own motivations onto others, which holds a mirror up to a pretty sick, juvenile little jerk.

    Perhaps we need to establish a GoFindMe account so you can buy yourself some whore time. I imagine you get pretty lonely and sore stroking yourself in your mommy’s basement. If you don’t fix your attitude by the time you turn fifteen, the only sex you’ll ever get will be solitary or from a paid professional.

    Have a nice day!

  • What a laugh

    No, you are not getting the point. If Taylor did it privately through an attorney how does that tell the world how wrongly Kesha has been treated? If Sony got word of what Taylor did and it was in private, why would they care? But if Sony looks bad to the public who spend money on Sony merchandise—well that is a different story. No, not a fan. Don’t have one Taylor Swift CD. I have only heard her songs if they come on the radio when I’m in my car and they are not among my favorites. I’m a little too old for her music.

  • smmy33

    Your arguments are as hollow & irrelevant as you are.

  • QuietDanTN

    Hundreds and hundreds of charitable actions and donations. We all know this in Nashville.

    She’ll hit the Pediatric Cancer Ward at Vanderbilt’s Children’s Hospital and spend a half hour or more with each child and maybe one kid’s family will mention it online, though Taylor NEVER does.

    She put $4 Million into the Country Music Hall of Fame and keeps it stocked with guitars for the children’s learning room. Taylor Swift is one of the finest young women on the face of the planet, and everybody that pays any attention to it knows it, to include Mrs Obama and every artist that ever toured with her as she was going up.

    Taylor Swift get hassled for her “Girl Squad” but this action reinforces those “Squad Goals” in a tangible way. This donation was a shot across the bow of Sony to help them think twice before they dig themselves a deeper hole on the backs of their young female artists. If they don’t straighten up and fly right, they’ll never get another young female artist to work with them, ever again. Brava, Swift!

  • Arx

    Aww your so sweet but who’s being juvenile now? Although I’m sure Taylor gets you rock hard. Have you thought about her while jerking off? I’m sure your doing it right now in that single bed. Don’t worry I won’t tell anyone.

  • What a laugh

    With with the way you speak how many people have you “fked”? You sound like you are such an upstanding and SMART person. I bet you are one of those people who tried to learn 2-3 new words every day so you won’t sound like a low-life or illiterate. The way you speak really makes people want to sit up and take notice of your intelligence and not simply how obnoxious you are.

  • QuietDanTN

    Transference, again.

    Queen size bed. Spouse and I are giggling at you.

    Long Long Live Taylor Alison Swift, Princess of Nashville and New York. And the World.

  • Arx

    Thanks a lot you made me cry!!

  • Sargoss Golek

    i pity u,

  • Arx

    Long live Kesha!! You remember the women who was raped. Anyways, thanks for proving my point! An important issue thats now about Taylor Swift and her fans mental well-being.

    Speaking of transference.
    “Perhaps we need to establish a GoFindMe account so you can buy yourself some whore time. I imagine you get pretty lonely and sore stroking yourself in your mommy’s basement. If you don’t fix your attitude by the time you turn fifteen, the only sex you’ll ever get will be solitary or from a paid professional.”

    Great career, paid off mortgage, a nice car, benefits, all the women I can currently handle and free time to piss on the Taylor Swift parade.

  • Joher

    People will find any reason to complain I can’t believe it, I’m not a fan of either of these girls but clearly Kesha’s mom appreciated Taylor’s help so why don’t we all do the same instead of criticizing everything? At least she did something! She didn’t just send a tweet, she gave her money which Kesha probably needs since she can’t release music and I’m pretty sure she offered to help her in many other ways, she can’t just go and rip her contract with Sony. Seriously we are ALL supposed to help each other not tear us apart.

  • Sargoss Golek

    why r u so mean, agressive and vulgar?

  • Sargoss Golek

    so true!!

  • Arx

    I envy you. It must be great to be completely oblivious to great music and real musicianship. Worshiping a product like Taylor must be so satisfying. Hopefully one day i’ll be as delusional as you!

  • Maggie P.U.

    If you say so. Have a good day.

  • Maggie P.U.

    If you say so.

  • Maggie P.U.

    Ok.
