    Kesha broke down in tears in Manhattan Supreme Court Friday when a judge denied her request for a preliminary injunction that would have temporarily nullified her contract with Sony Records - and freed her from working with the man she says raped her.

    The "Tik Tok" singer says she's too afraid to continue collaborating with super producer Dr. Luke, whose real name is Luke Gottwald.

    KESHA'S ALLEGED RAPE HAPPENED WHEN SHE WAS 18-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN

    She claims he holds her exclusive contract, and even though Sony has offered to let her work with another producer, Kesha said she feared the company wouldn't promote her music if she’s paired with a different partner.

    The 28-year-old, whose real name is Kesha Rose Sebert, claims that Dr. Luke drugged her with a "sober pill" and raped her shortly after her 18th birthday in California. He was never criminally charged.

    Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich said she thought Sony would suffer irreparable harm if Kesha was not compelled to abide by a contract that requires her to make six more albums with the company.

    Kesha had asked the judge to issue a preliminary injunction that would bar Sony from forcing her to work with Dr. Luke and to cancel her contracts.

    Dozens of fans rallied outside the courthouse in support of the embattled singer.

    "Free Kesha Now! Free Kesha Now!" they chanted as the singer walked down the long front steps with her entourage.


    The judge said that granting that request would undermine the state's laws governing contracts and the court couldn't do that.

    She also noted that Sony had offered to let Kesha work with another producer.

    Kesha's lawyer, Mark Geragos, argued that Sony's promise was "illusory" because even if the recordings were made, the record company wouldn't promote them. He contended that Sony had more invested in Dr. Luke than in Kesha and it would do everything to protect him because he makes them more money.

    The judge said that Geragos had offered nothing concrete to back up his "speculative" argument.

    Kesha, in a dramatic all-white outfit seated in court next to her mother in a back row, initially looked stunned as the judge refused to issue the injunction. Then as a tear soaked fan in front of her started sniffling loudly, her own eyes filled with tears.

    The lawyers also argued yesterday over motions by Dr. Luke and Sony to dismiss the underlying case in which Kesha contends that Dr. Luke abused her emotionally and psychologically for a decade, forcing her to take a sabbatical and go into rehab in January 2014.

    The judge was critical of those claims as well, saying she didn't think the information provided by Kesha's lawyers was detailed enough to keep her civil rights, sexual harassment and discrimination claims alive. However, the judge postponed making a decision on the dismissal motions.

    Earlier, fans sang Kesha tunes in the cold outside the courthouse. More than119,000 supporters have signed an online petition to Sony Music President Doug Morris to allow her not to work with Dr. Luke.

    "Nobody should have to work with somebody who has abused her like this,” said Alyssa Johnson, 19, of New Milford Conn. “We're here to show support.

    She's a lying whore. She only came out with the rape allegations after they wouldn't release her from her contract. Gee, I wonder why she would mention the fucking RAPE first and try to get someone thrown in jail for doing that?

    Six more albums!!! I guess the cruel and unusual punishment thing doesn't apply to the ears of the American public.

    yeah. if she really was raped, how could she expect a favorable judgement with no crime reported, no evidence, 10 years in the past, and money at play.

    Ke$ha hasn't produced an album in nearly half a decade. I get that Sony's fighting a battle over precedent right now, but why not let her buy out her fucking contract instead of holding the poor girl hostage for the rest of her life? Her "brand" can't be worth the fucking hassle at this point.

    It would be if she was accusing you of rape and you were innocent. Fuck her, allegedly.

    I'm glad a judge is enforcing a contract and not tossing it out the window.
