AceShowbiz - Kesha (Ke$ha) subtly showed support for Cassie following the latter's rape and abuse lawsuit against Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. Concertgoers noticed that during her "It Only Love Tour" stop in Los Angeles, Kesha dropped the rapper's name on one of her songs.
During the Saturday, November 18 show at the Hollywood Palladium, Kesha made slight alterations when singing her breakout hit single "Tik Tok". "Wake up in the mornin' feelin' just like me/ Get my glasses, I'm about to hit this scene," she sang that night. Diddy's name was originally included in the lyrics, which read, "Wake up in the mornin' feelin' like P. Diddy/ Grab my glasses, I'm out the door, I'm gonna hit this city."
As some videos of the performance went viral, fans began praising Kesha for the move. "Oh, she is so iconic. We need to start holding these men accountable," a fan wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.
"Love how artists evolve with their music over time. Kesha giving a fresh spin to a classic hit is what live performances are all about! Who else loves seeing their faves switch things up?" one other noted. Meanwhile, someone commented, "What a Queen."
Kesha's decision to change the lyrics of her song came after Cassie accused Diddy of rape, abuse and sex trafficking in a lawsuit on Thursday, November 16. In legal documents, she claimed that he raped her back in 2018, forced her to perform sexual acts with sex workers as she was given drugs and alcohol "in excessive amounts" as well as physically assaulted her.
Through his lawyer, Diddy denied the allegations in a statement via his lawyer. His attorney Ben Brafman labeled them "baseless and outrageous lies in a statement. "Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations," the attorney continued, adding that the lawsuit aims "to tarnish Mr. Combs' reputation and seeking a pay day."
The next day, the former lovers announced that they've "amicably" settled the issue. "I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control," the 37-year-old singer shared in a statement. "I want to thank my family, fans, and lawyers for their unwavering support."
Diddy, meanwhile, said, "We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love."
