keshamanager12511.jpgKe$ha's former managers are asking the Manhattan Supreme Court to speed up proceedings on their $14 million lawsuit against the star because they're afraid she'll run out of money before they get their payday.

In papers filed, her management company, DAS Communications, contends that Ke$ha "is a very young and inexperienced artist whose 'star' may not continue to rise."

They go on to warn that "Although she has made an incredible amount of money in a very short period of time, in large part due to DAS' efforts on her behalf, she could just as easily lose money if not properly guided."

Ke$ha was sued by her former managers over the summer, saying she cut them off after being pressured by songwriter Dr. Luke, whom they are seeking an additional $12 million from.

Ke$ha has filed a countersuit against them, claiming they illegally acted as her agent.
