Taylor Swift is helping put the dollar sign back in Kesha.

After the “Tik Tok” singer suffered a devastating court verdict last week, Swift stepped in to offer some financial aid.

"In a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time," Swift’s spokesperson told E! News.

Kesha’s mom tweeted her thanks: “Taylor Swift has just generously donated $250,000 to Kesha, as a show of support during this difficult time. AMAZING!!”

She continued, “A person’s wealth is not measured by what they have but by WHO they help with it. And Taylor Swift is a truly RICH PERSON. Thank you.”

On Friday, a Manhattan Supreme Court judge decided not to release Kesha from her six-album deal with Sony — even though that means she’ll have to work with super-producer Dr. Luke, who allegedly raped her when she was 18.

The producer, whose real name is Luke Gottwald, was never criminally charged.

Sony offered to let the singer work with another producer, but her lawyer, Mark Geragos, called that an “illusory” promise, arguing that the label wouldn’t promote her music without Dr. Luke’s involvement.

After Kesha emerged from the courthouse sobbing, a crowd of fans rallied around her in support, shouting, “Free Kesha Now! Free Kesha Now!”

Singers Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande, Lorde and Demi Lovato have all tweeted their support for their fellow musician — and now Swift has jumped on board, too.
