The past couple of years have been a whirlwind for Kesha. She was in a heated legal battle with music producer Dr. Luke, who she claimed sexually, physically, verbally, and emotionally abused her. Because of this, she wasn’t able to release new music for almost four years. But as the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements gained traction, she got up on stage at the 2018 Grammys with a newfound confidence.
Singing her new song “Praying” alongside Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels, and several others, it was a moment to remember. A source exclusively told Life & Style, “The Grammys were a huge, cathartic experience for her.” However, now that Kesha’s professional career is beginning to skyrocket again, her personal life is also taking a front seat. She’s been dating writer Brad Ashenfelter for over three years, and in the world of Hollywood, that means it’s time for a wedding!
The source shared, “Her relationship with Brad is going better than ever. They’re talking about a wedding this year, then having a baby. She wants to continue being an activist for women dealing with sexual harassment. But she’s also desperate for a normal life.”
The beginning of Kesha and Brad’s relationship was just that: normal. She told Rolling Stone that her hairstylist actually introduced them, but she wasn’t initially attracted to him without facial hair. “Then he kissed me, and it was the nicest kiss I ever had,” she recalled. “I was like, ‘Wow, you’re such a pure soul. Holy s–t.’ And I knew from that moment, ‘I gotta hold on to you.'”
Though Kesha may never have a “normal” life given her celebrity status, she’ll no doubt have a happy one with Brad by her side — especially if a baby comes along!
