"Truth is always the answer."

You're probably aware that Taylor Swift is currently embroiled in a legal battle against a radio DJ, David Mueller, who she alleges sexually assaulted her during a meet-and-greet in 2013.

Swift originally reported the alleged assault to David Mueller's employers, who fired him from his job at KYGO radio station. Two years later, Meuller filed a lawsuit against Taylor, seeking up to $3 million in damages, denying that he assaulted her and claiming he was wrongfully fired. She responded by countersuing for $1, alleging sexual assault.

Swift testified at the trial on Thursday, and let's just say she came out with some seriously incredible one-liners. She maintained that Mueller grabbed her inappropriately, and β€” rightfully β€” refused to accept any victim-shaming.

The judge has since dismissed Mueller's claim against Swift, stating that he couldn't prove she was the reason he was fired. Swift's sexual assault case against Mueller has yet to be resolved.

People have been praising Taylor for her "badassery" ever since she took the stand, including celebrities like Shonda Rhimes, Amber Heard, and Swift's friends Lena Dunham and Jaime King.

Y'all. I'm digging @taylorswift13 so hard right now for the feminist badassery. https://t.co/v4Fw18oNSV

And now Kesha has tweeted her support for Swift, praising her "strength and fearlessness".

. @taylorswift13 i support you always, and especially right now and admire your strength and fearlessness. truth is always the answer.

"Truth is always the answer," she wrote.

Kesha recently returned to the music scene for the first time since her own legal battle with producer Dr Luke, who she sued in 2014 for sexual assault and verbal abuse. He then countersued for defamation, claiming she just wanted out of her multi-album contract with him.

Kesha dropped her lawsuit in August last year in order to focus on producing new music, but is still contractually obliged to produce two more albums with Dr Luke.

And people are, of course, totally loving the display of love and support between the two women.
