So upsetting. A new report claims that Kesha has sued her music producer of ten years, Dr. Luke for allegedly, ‘sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally’ abusing her.
So sad. TMZ reports that Kesha, 27, has filed a lawsuit against her longtime producer, Dr. Luke, 41, who has represented the singer since she was just eighteen-years-old. The site reports that Kesha claims, “he would force her to use drugs and alcohol to remove her defenses.”
Kesha Sexual Assault — Sues Dr. Luke
Absolutely devastating. TMZ reports in the lawsuit that Kesha claims that Dr. Luke (Lukasz Gottwald) had been abusive towards her since she first signed with him. She reportedly said that he, “made repeated sexual advances toward her. She claims he would force her to use drugs and alcohol to remove her defenses.”
The site reports that her lawsuit says, “he forced her to snort something before getting on a plane … and during the trip he forced himself on her while she was drugged.” That’s not all. “Kesha claims after forcing her to drink with him, Dr. Luke gave her what he called “sober pills,'” the site reports. “Kesha claims she woke up the following afternoon, naked in Dr. Luke’s bed, sore, sick … and with no memory of how she got there.”
Besides allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted her, the artist also claims that the producer caused her to have an eating disorder. According to the site he told her, “You are not that pretty, you are not that talented, you are just lucky to have me.”
Kesha Wants To Be Released From Her Contract
According to the site, the singer has asked the judge to let her out of her contract with Dr. Luke. Mark Geragos, Kesha’s lawyer told TMZ, “This lawsuit is a wholehearted effort by Kesha to regain control of her music career and her personal freedom after suffering for ten years as a victim of mental manipulation, emotional abuse and an instance of sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke.”
Just hours after Kesha filed her lawsuit, Dr. Luke counter sued, claiming that the singer is, “a liar.”
Mark Geragos told HollywoodLife.com, “This is just another pathetic and entirely predictable example of Dr. Luke’s continued abuse, and a misguided attempt to keep Kesha under his tyrannical control. This lawsuit has absolutely no basis in fact, the law or reality.Kesha is focused on reclaiming her voice and her freedom. She is determined to move on with her life and her career by putting this dark period behind her.”
