via Kesha's Instagram
In order to release new music, Kesha will drop the California case against producer Luckasz "Dr Luke" Gottwald, where he stood accused of sexual assault, battery, sexual harassment and other claims. She will proceed with her case in New York, and appeal
the April ruling in which her sexual assault allegations against Luke were dismissed.
Kesha posted to Instagram with the caption, "My fight continues. I need to get my music out. I have so much to say. This lawsuit is so heavy on my once free spirit, and I can only pray to one day feel that happiness again. I am continuing to fight for my rights in New York. Thank you for all your support. The support of my fans has been so beautiful and I'm so grateful for it. I'm Not sure where I would be without you all."
Her lawyer told the Rolling Stone that "Kesha is focused on getting back to work and has delivered 28 new songs to the record label. We have conveyed to Sony and the label Kesha’s strong desire to release her next album and single as soon as possible."
Kesha is now fighting to dissolve her contract with Gottwald’s company, KMI, because his suit requests money damages rather than the fulfillment of that contract. (via: Rolling Stone)

23-Year-Old Korryn Gaines Killed By Baltimore Police
The 23-year-old mother confronted Baltimore police with a shotgun, while holding her 5-year-old son after they attempted to serve warrants for her and a man living in the same residence.
In a press conference, police Chief Jim Johnson claims that officers gained entry into her home by obtaining a key and engaged in hours-long negotiations to resolve the standoff, but a shootout ensued and Korryn Gaines died on scene. Her five-year-old son was wounded during the exchange. “Perceiving not only her actions, but the words she used, we discharged one round at her, in turn she fired several rounds back at us,” Johnson said during a news conference on Monday night. “We fired again at her, striking and killing her. Tragically in this circumstance, the child that was also in the dwelling was struck by a round.” According to Johnson it's unclear if a body camera captured the altercation. (via: Washington Post)
