So sad! Kesha’s mom has revealed why her daughter stayed with producer Dr. Luke even after he allegedly drugged and raped her early on in her career. Read on for the shocking reason why she remained silent and let her kept working with him.
Pebe Sebert, 60, has come forward with the story of Kesha, 28, and Dr. Luke‘s strange and unhealthy relationship and why she let her daughter keep working professionally with a man the singer claims allegedly sexually assaulted her. According to the singer’s mom, she totally regrets never going to the police at the time of the incident, because young Kesha was afraid the 42-year-old super producer would kill her burgeoning career.
According to Pebe, it was just a few months after signing a binding, multi-album deal with the producer’s label that Dr. Luke took Kesha to Nicky Hilton‘s birthday party where she was allegedly slipped a drug and taken back to Luke’s hotel room. Pebe recalls the next day her daughter called her and said, “Mom, I don’t know where I am. I think we had sex. I’m sore and sick. I don’t know where my clothes are. I think I need to go to the hospital,” she said. She never did and a friend picked her up and brought her back to their apartment.

“Looking back, I don’t know why we didn’t go to the police. Kesha told me not to do anything. She said, ‘Mom, I just want to sing. I don’t want to be a rape-case victim. I just want to get my music out.’ I didn’t follow my instincts.” Pebe tells Billboard magazine.
The singer finally came forward in 2014 with the claims and sued to be let out of her contract with Dr. Luke, with her attorney claiming. 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.”
But her efforts were unsuccessful and a judge recently ruled that she must remain with Sony and finish out the remainder of her six record deal. The decision was devastating to Kesha, but she’s seen a huge outpouring of support from many powerful female singers as a result of her courage to come forward.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kesha will eventually be able to get out of her contract and make music again?
