Dr. Luke is a staple in the music industry! He’s was the force of so many hits that we listen and fell in love with.
Check out his insane roster of artists he’s produced for; Katy Perry, Avril Lavign, Pink, Taio Cruz, B.o.B, Jessie J, Britney Spears, Flo Rida, Miley Cyrus, T.I, Nicki Minaj, Juicy J, Rihanna, Shakira… and of course he’s well known for signing recording artists Kesha and Sabi.
Well, he helped Kesha out.. and she can now be putting an end to his career!
Kesha is claiming that she was sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abused for 10 years by Dr. Luke, to the point where she nearly died. In a new lawsuit Kesha claims Dr. Luke was abusive towards her when she signed on with him at 18. She claims that he made repeated sexual advances toward her. He also would force her to use drugs and alcohol.
Kesha claims Dr. Luke forced her to drink with him. He gave her what he called “sober pills.” Kesha says she woke up the following afternoon, naked in Dr. Luke’s bed, sore, sick … and with no memory of how she got there.
Kesha’s lawyer said, “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.” He continued, “The facts presented in our lawsuit paint a picture of a man who is controlling and willing to commit horrible acts of abuse in an attempt to intimidate an impressionable, talented, young female artist into submission for his personal gain. Kesha is focused on moving her life and her career beyond this terrible time.”
BUT it doesn’t stop there. Dr. Luke isn’t going down without a fight! Dr. Luke fires back! Dr. Luke filed a lawsuit hours later in New York contends Kesha made up “outrageous and untrue statements” to extort him into releasing her from her recording contract with his label.
