NEW YORK, NY -- Pop star Ke$ha was dealt a huge blow on Friday when a New York supreme court judge ruled she had to honor her contract with Sony Music. For the past couple of years, Ke$ha has refused to make music with her producer Dr. Luke claiming he raped her in 2005 and continued to assault her for several years after.

Despite her claims, the judge ruled Ke$ha had to stay in her contract and make another six albums for Sony. The music company claims they'll allow her to work with a different producer but Ke$ha's camp says she wants to make music with an entirely different record label.

Dozens of fans gathered outside the courthouse chanting "Free Ke$ha" but not even their support could cheer up the pop star who left the courthouse in tears.
