Kesha's legal team has reportedly been shaken up: According to Pitchfork, the singer is no longer being represented by Mark Geragos, the attorney who has been working with her throughout the Dr. Luke lawsuit.

Geragos, alongside Daniel Petrocelli (who won a civil suit against O.J. Simpson), represented her in New York and California. But Petrocelli's firm O'Melveny & Myers has now allegedly replaced Geragos firm. A rep for Kesha did not immediately respond to Fuse's request for comment.

The attorney previously represented Michael Jackson and Chris Brown. Geragos also claimed Dr. Luke raped Lady Gaga in 2014, which resulted in the singer shutting down the reports and the producer suing him for defamation.

Last month, Kesha's case against Sony was dropped by a New York judge. Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich reportedly stated, "Every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime." While her case was dismissed in the state, she still has a lawsuit pending in Los Angeles against Dr. Luke.

In the midst of her legal troubles, Kesha recently teamed up with Zedd for their "True Colors" collaboration. The song marks her first official track since the start of the lawsuit, and Zedd made it clear that he was allowed to release it:
