Dr. Luke has worked with the world’s biggest pop stars and has not only produced but also written hits such as ‘For Your Entertainment’, ‘Party in The USA’ and ‘Who Knew’. Who would have thought that Kesha was going to add abuser to his CV.
The Tik Tok singer is suing the mega producer for various forms of abuse that began the moment she signed with him. The lawsuit claims that Dr. Luke didn’t just abuse her emotionally but also sexually and physically. It also states that he forced her to use alcohol and drugs and she blames him for the eating disorder she suffered earlier this year.
In one story, she claims how he had her drink with him one night, then gave her ‘sober pills’ which caused her to wake up the following afternoon, alone ane naked in his bed feeling sore.
The lawsuit asks that she be let go from the contract she has with Dr. Luke.
DR. LUKE RESPONDS
Dr. Luke has responded with a lawsuit of his own stating that everything Kesha claimed is nothing but lies.
Luke is claiming that Kesha had previously tried to extort him by threatening to spread lies unless he released her from her contract. Furthermore, it’s been discovered that he had a draft of the lawsuit for months and she had threatened to file it unless he released her from her contract.
He sees the lawsuit as a product of Kesha’s mom Pebe and her new management firm.
Kesha denied drug, sex claims against Dr Luke in 2011
It has been revealed that in 2011, the musician swore under oath that the music producer never abused her. The deposition was given by Kesha in a prior lawsuit with her former managers at DAS Communications and in it she denies that Dr. Luke ever gave her coke or a date rape drug which contradicts her current allegations.
The deposition had been sealed, but Dr. Luke’s lawyer Christine Lepara requested that the judge unseal the document and allow it to be used in the current lawsuit yet Kesha’s lawyer Mark Geragos argued against the motion stating that that using the deposition was a pathetic attempt to once again blame the victim. Geragos said the singer lied because ‘Luke walked Kesha down the beach and threatened to destroy Kesha’s life and the lives of her family if she didn’t cover up his sexual assaults.’
