Kesha lines up a trio of dates in Las Vegas as legal battle rumbles on

Pop star Kesha is hoping to put her ongoing legal worries behind her after announcing a string of dates in Las Vegas.

The Tik Tok singer, who has been battling with her former mentor and producer Dr. Luke after accusing him of physical and emotional abuse in 2013, has lined up a mini-residency at Wynn Las Vegas.


She will headline three nights at the casino and hotel resort's Intrigue Nightclub from 23 June (16).


Kesha returned to the Las Vegas stage last month (May16), when she performed with Ben Folds at the Billboard Music Awards.


Dr. Luke and his Kemosabe Records executives, who still oversee Kesha's career after she lost a bid to void the contract she signed with the producer, only allowed her performance of Bob Dylan's It Ain't Me, Babe go ahead when she assured them she had no plans to attack the hitmaker at the ceremony.


Kesha's three Wynn Las Vegas shows will take place on 23 June, 25 June and 23 July (16), according to Billboard.com.


The news of the trio of dates comes less than a week after the pop star helped a gay fan propose to his boyfriend onstage at the DisneyWorld resort’s annual Gay Days celebration in Florida on Saturday (04Jun16).


One of the men, who was invited onstage to join Kesha, was blindfolded for what he thought was a skit and when he removed the cover from his eyes he was surprised to find his boyfriend down on one knee proposing to him.


Kesha found the magical moment so moving and struggled to keep her emotions in check as the two fans embraced.


After the gig, she took to Instagram and wrote: "overcome and overwhelmed with emotion on stage last night.


"I'm honored that @jnegrelli57 & @m_abu24 shared such a monumental moment with me, and let me help orchestrate their surprise engagement. love is the magic in life, and really there is nothing more important. he said yes. he actually said 'a million times, yes'. then my heart melted and I cried. haha. congratulations."
