Singer Kesha, currently, involved in legal battle with her producer Dr. Luke, has made a sensational allegation that Sony offered to let her out of her contract adding that the price for that was way too high.
She posted the following messages on her instagram page, “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.”
Dr. Luke’s spokesperson was quoted by Rolling Stone website, “The Court repeatedly stated Kesha is already free to record without Dr. Luke, and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims. That’s because all the evidence – including Kesha’s own videotaped sworn testimony – show her allegations are false. The only thing Kesha is not free to do is to continue to lie about Dr. Luke through publicity stunts and outrageous smears, ignoring the fact that by her own free will she went to work and entered into new contracts with Dr. Luke years after this ‘incident’ supposedly happened. Her goal all along has been solely personal enrichment by seeking to break contracts that brought her success and millions so she can enter into more lucrative ones. We look forward to our day in court holding Kesha accountable for her lies.”
In a 2014 lawsuit, both Kesha and her mother Bebe Sebert sued Dr. Luke, accusing the producer of sexual, physical, emotional and verbal abuse. Gottwald countersued Sebert, Kesha and her lawyer Mark Geragos with defamation and breach of contracts lawsuits. Kesha’s efforts to have an injunction filed against her Kemosabe contract were denied in February by a New York judge.
Only a fortnight ago, the 29-year-old singer announced she would be appealing the decision by a judge that forced her to keep working with music giants – despite claims she was attacked.
The Tick Tock and Die Young singer filed a motion in a Manhattan court on 21 March in a bid to overturn the judgement which meant she had to continue working alongside the alleged attacker Dr Luke while he makes money from her music.
