The 'Tik Tok' singer was reported to have penned an open letter slamming Gaga for wearing fur.
Ke$ha has confirmed that an open letter criticising Lady Gaga for reportedly wearing real fur is a fake and was not written by her.
The 'Tik Tok' singer tweeted Lady Gaga and her fans last night (17th August), after the letter was posted on a fan site, to confirm the document was a forgery and that she had only just discovered its existence.
The letter in question was written to look like the PETA representative had made contact with Gaga over recent pictures that saw the 'You & I' singer wearing a reported real fur coat in Bulgaria earlier this week, with 'Ke$ha' writing that she had been "genuinely shocked and upset" by the pop star's actions.
"Animals+ @lady gaga - jus woke up in Japan +heard that there's a letter from "me" floating around," Ke$ha tweeted. "Well it's a fake. not from me. Love you all xx."
"It upsets me to see that you, a role model to many, especially those who are fashion forward, would openly endorse such a cruel and inhumane practice," the forged letter reads. "As a fellow artist, I would like to express my distaste, and quite bluntly, disgust at the fact that you, someone who is in the spotlight at a near constant basis, would endorse and display this type of clothing."
Lady Gaga later responded personally to the 'Blow' singer on Twitter after reading her message, thanking Ke$ha for clarifying the situation.
"Thanks for clearing up that the letter was fake," Gaga posted. "U are brave+know the meaning of acceptance. Box of animal crackers coming ur way."
Gaga posted a blog message on her website LittleMonsters.com this week to reiterate that she will not disclose whether or not the fur coats had been real, and insisting to fans and press that: "I respect your views, please respect mine".

Lady Gaga took her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour to both Bulgaria and Romania this week and will perform in Vienna, Austria this Saturday (18th August).
