Lady Gaga speaks in support of Kesha

Lady Gaga speaks in support of Kesha

Lady Gaga thinks Kesha will be "affected for the rest of her life" by her alleged abuse.

The 29-year-old singer has again spoken out in support of the 'Tik Tok' hitmaker - who a court ruled can't leave her exclusive recording contract with Dr. Luke, despite her claims she was sexually abused by the producer - and admitted she feels frustrated and upset when victims of abuse aren't believed.

She posted a screenshot on Instagram of her reply to one of her followers in an earlier post: "This is the most upsetting part for me. That the very reason women don't speak up for years is the fear no one will believe them of their abuser has threatened their life of their loved ones/livelihood in order to keep their victim quiet and under their control.

"What happened to Kesha has happened to many female artists including myself and it will affect her for the rest of her life."

The 'Poker Face' singer appealed for an end to "victim shaming" with her message.

She captioned the post: "Listen and Love. #stopvictimshaming."

And Gaga - who previously admitted she was raped when she was 19 - also took to Snapchat to share a short video of herself giving Kesha, 28, a kiss.

Luke has vehemently denied the singer's allegations against him.
