Pop singer Kesha has claimed that her former #mentor Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald would release her from her record deal if she denied allegations he sexually abused her and issued a public apology.
Kesha took to Instagram and wrote,
“so. I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie. I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.”
Kesha is in an ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke’s Sony Music-based Kemosabe Records over the contract, and Kesha owes up to six more studio albums to her alleged abuser Dr. Luke— Kesha has a standing offer from Sony to record music with not involving Dr. Luke although he would still profit. In February, New York Superior Court Judge cited a lack of evidence for her allegations of abuse and ruling that she still owes the Sony-based label six full studio albums.
Dr. Luke has denied any wrongdoings and claims its motivated by money, stating ” it’s sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue.”
Kesha once testified under oath in 2011 that Dr.Luke never made sexual advances towards her.
Dr. Luke also tweeted:
“It’s sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue.”
“This is an ongoing legal case so I won’t be responding / talking much about this. This should be tried in a court of law.”
