Kesha Rose Sebert is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter, which saw a significant drop after her recent lawsuit with Dr. Luke. At a young age, this star has seen the best and the worst days of her life. Now let’s have a close look on Kesha’s net worth in 2019.
Kesha was born on 1st of March in 1987 in California to single mother Patricia Rose Sebert. Her mother was also a songwriter and singer and had co-written the song ‘Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You’. Kesha also had a sibling, her older brother Lagan, both of whom were raised single-handedly by their mother. Kesha often talks about being clueless about the identity of her father.
Bob Chamberlain, someone who claimed himself to be the father of the singer approached suddenly one day with pictures and letters claiming he had been in touch with the 19-year-old.
Kesha went to two schools, Franklin High School and Brentwood High School, and still felt out of place due to her unconventional choices. She started playing multiple instruments like the trumpet and the saxophone in the school band and also used to go for recordings with her mother, thus getting into music from an early age.
Kesha got an almost perfect score in her SATs, and was even offered a scholarship at Barnard College, she, however, rejected it and went to pursue a career in Music.
Kesha dropped out from school when she was 17 and joined producer Dr. Luke Kemosabe and Max Martin for a career in Music. At the age of 18, she was signed by Kemosabe Entertainment which was Luke’s label. Sony Entertainment, that owned Kemosabe’s records partnered with him and brought in Kesha to sing songs for many celebrities, including Paris Hilton, in the song ‘Nothing in This World’.
Her breakthrough was the moment in the year 2009 when she shared space with rapper Flo Rida, in his single ‘Right Round’. This gave her career an instant boost and she went on to release her own music album ‘Animal’, which ranked on the top of the charts in countries across the globe.
She went on to release her second album ‘Warrior’ in the year 2012. Many songs from this album also became top songs. Soon things started to get bad for Kesha when she got into a lawsuit with Dr. Luke. He accused her of breaching the contract and causing him defamation, and Kesha in-turn ended up suing him for sexual harassment, emotional abuse, as well as employment discrimination. She ended up losing the lawsuit and a great deal of money.
Recovering from the misery, Kesha launched her third album ‘Rainbow’ with a lead song that was nominated for Grammy.
