Kesha has cancelled her upcoming performance at Loyola University Chicago, according to the university's Department of Programming.

According to the announcement, the department was "notified that Kesha will no longer be able to perform at Loyola's annual Colossus weekend due to personal reasons."

The "Crazy Kids" singer has been at the center of legal drama after she lost a preliminary injunction last week that would have let her out of her contract with producer Dr. Luke -- whom Kesha has accused of drugging and raping her over a decade ago and consistently abusing her physically and emotionally.

Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, has denied any wrongdoing.

Kesha has been receiving a wave of love and support from her fans and fellow music stars who have come out to stand behind the singer during this difficult time, including Taylor Swift, who donated $250,000 to the singer.

"Kesha has expressed her disappointment in having to cancel, but she feels that this is the best decision for her at this time," the Loyola Department of Programming related in their statement. "We respect her decision and wish her well."
