Kesha Sues Producer Dr. Luke, Claims He Abused Her


Pop singer Kesha filed a lawsuit against her longtime producer Dr. Luke, claiming that he sexually, physically and verbally abused since she was 18 years old. In her lawsuit, obtained by TMS, the 27-year-old celebrity says Dr. Luke drugged her, attacked her and forced himself on her. Finally, she wants a judge to let her out of her contract with the producer.

However, Dr. Luke has also filed a lawsuit against her, saying that Kesha and her mother “are engaged in a campaign of publishing outrageous and untrue statements about Dr. Luke.”

Kesha’s lawyer Mark Geragos told FOX411 that Kesha is ‘’determined to move on with her life and her career by putting this dark period behind her.’’

“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.”

Dr. Luke’s lawyer denies all the accusations.

“These are allegations that Kesha and [her mother] Pebe have themselves admitted are false. The complaint [filed on behalf of Dr. Luke] explains that Kesha and her mother Pebe have wielded these defamatory statements in an attempt to extort Gottwald into releasing Kesha from her exclusive recording agreement with Dr. Luke.”
