Some nasty words are being thrown Kesha’s way by Dr. Luke and his lawyers, especially after a judge shut down her request to get out of her Sony contract. Yikes.
Dr. Luke, 42, is obviously not thrilled with Kesha, 28, and her accusations against him — including rape. A new report reveals that the famed music producer and his high-profile Sony lawyers think that she’s just an extortionist, and that the judge saw that, too, and it’s why he refused to grant her request.
Is Kesha a liar? That’s exactly what her former producer, Dr. Luke, and his lawyers want you to think, reports TMZ. Not only are his lawyers accusing her of making false accusations and trying to extort both Dr. Luke and her record label, Sony, but they are also claiming she was never solely linked to Dr. Luke and could have worked with any producer she liked while recording music. Hmm.
The lawyers are also claiming that Kesha attempted a “trial by Twitter,” which is where she launched what they are calling a nasty “smear campaign” against the producer to “ruin his career.”
As for her being “free,” the lawyers claim she has her own choice of Sony producers to pick from — not just Dr. Luke. However, Kesha is desperate to get out of her contract with Sony and move as far away from Dr. Luke as she possibly can in the music world. Not only has she accused him of rape, but she fears that the label will not promote her music if she refuses to work with him again in the future.
Despite Kesha’s request being denied by the judge on Friday, Feb. 19, many of today’s top music artists have been rallying behind her. In fact, Taylor Swift, 25, just donated $250,000 to Kesha’s case to help her continue the fight to be freed from her Sony record contract and working with Dr. Luke in the future.
