The two have compromised.

Despite reports that surfaced yesterday claiming Kesha's scheduled performance at the Billboard Music Awards had been nixed by her alleged abuser, Dr. Luke, his record label is now stating they've reversed their decision and are giving her the go-ahead to appear at the show on Sunday.

But only because she agreed not to use the opportunity to air out their dirty laundry.

"Kesha's performance on the Billboard Music Awards was always approved, in good faith. Approval was only suspended when Kemosabe learned Kesha was to use the performance as a platform to discuss the litigation," a statement read.

"Now that Kemosabe has obtained assurances, that it is relying upon, from Kesha, her representatives and Dick Clark Productions that neither Kesha nor her supporters will use the performance as such a platform, the approval has been restored."

Kesha was planning to perform Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" at the awards show. However, she just did so last night alongside fellow artist Ben Folds when he invited her on stage during his concert in Los Angeles, so no word on whether or not she is planning on changing her set.

The Billboard Awards are set to air live Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
