Kesha has broken her silence almost a week after a NY court denied her request to be released from her oppressive contract at Sony, in hopes of freeing herself form contact with her alleged rapist and producer, Dr. Luke.

Dr. Luke. unfortunately, also broke his silence, and posted his defense on Twitter on Monday.

Stay strong, Kesha!
