Pop superstar Kesha and producer Dr. Luke have filed lawsuits against each other; both filing hours after each other!
Check out details below!
Pop singer and rapper Kesha and super producer Dr. Luke have both filed lawsuits against each other! Kesha has alleged that Dr. Luke sexually, verbally, and physically abused her from the time she was signed to his Kemosabe Records label. Kesha was 18 years when Dr. Luke, whose birth name is Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, signed her to his label and according to CNN she claims that she should be compensated for the “suffering he caused” and that her contract with him should “be declared void because of the abuse.”
Her complaint listed many accusations of verbal insults, drug abuse, sexual assault, as well as claims of emotional abuse. She alleges that the combination of these caused her to develop a serious eating disorder, bulimia nervosa, of which she has been treated for at a rehabilitation center. Kesha has secured high-profile attorney Mark Geragos to aid her with the lawsuit. Geragos explains that Kesha simply wants to “regain control of her music career and her personal freedom after suffering 10 years as a victim of mental manipulation, emotional abuse and sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke.”
On the other hand, Dr. Luke’s lawsuit against Kesha implies that he feels she is doing everything she can to discredit him and to force him into prematurely ending her recording contract with Kemosabe Records. He too has secured legal representation, New York entertainment lawyer Christine Lepera, who feels that her client will confidently “prevail in all matters, and that our client will be awarded substantial damages for this malicious conduct.” Lepera also advised that the Dr. Luke’s complaint claims “Kesha and her mother are engage in a campaign of publishing outrageous and untrue statements about Dr. Luke to third parties, including scurrilous and false statements of purported physical and mental abuse of Kesha.”
There are certainly some serious accusations being thrown around, especially on Kesha’s side. We hope that the situation between Kesha and Dr. Luke can be handled without any serious repercussions.
