Kesha may still be embroiled in a nasty legal battle with producer Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, but X17online can report exclusively that the singer, who turned 29 in March, will perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this month. Surprise!

A source close to Kesha tells X17online exclusively, "Kesha is beginning to realize that she needs to take her career into her own hands, and this is her way of doing just that." No word on who organized the gig, but it certainly sounds like a better deal than having to work with Gottwald.

In her suit, which was filed in 2014, Kesha alleges that Gottwald sexually and emotionally abused her, and she asked to be released from her contract with both Gottwald and Sony Music, which is set to run through 2017. In February a judge ruled that Kesha would NOT be freed from her contract, and though it was reported that Gottwald was going to be let go from Sony, that has yet to happen.
