Allow us to break it down for you… People magazine recently obtained court documents, first published by The Blast, which reveal that Kesha may not have been the only pop star that was allegedly raped by well-known music producer, Dr. Luke.
According to the court docs filed by Dr. Luke’s legal team, Kesha sent a text message to Lady Gaga in 2016 claiming that Katy Perry was a victim of his as well. Now, these allegations have become a key point in Dr. Luke’s defamation suit against Kesha, and after a judge dismissed Kesha’s abuse claims in 2016, there’s no telling how this will end.
The documents, which were originally filed on May 31st, focus on the text messages sent to Lady Gaga. QUOTE, “In this text message, [Kesha] also falsely asserted that Gottwald (professionally known as Dr. Luke) has also raped Kathryn Hudson (professionally known as Katy Perry). Following this text message, and with [Kesha’s] encouragement, Ms. Germanotta (Lady Gaga) spread negative messages about Gottwald in the press and on social media.” Wow.
We know what you’re thinking: This is a MESS. But honestly, it’s about to get a whole lot messier. In a statement that Luke’s legal team made to People, they’re claiming that Katy has denied Kesha’s allegations that Luke raped her.
The statement to People says, QUOTE, “Katy Perry herself confirmed that Dr. Luke did not rape her. Kesha’s accusation to the contrary— just like her other outrageous lies about Dr. Luke— is baseless and irresponsible, and it is disrespectful to both Katy Perry and Dr. Luke.”
Despite the claim that Katy denied the allegations, though, it’s still important to note that she split professionally with Luke several years ago. Of the decision to no longer work with him, Katy told the New York Times, QUOTE, “I had to leave the nest.” Interesting…
To this day, Dr. Luke denies any and all allegations of rape. In February 2016, he tweeted, QUOTE, “I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my sister.”
From a legal standpoint, Kesha never got the justice she was seeking. She did, however, release her third album, Rainbow, which is her most raw and honest release yet. In June, she told Cosmopolitan, QUOTE, “I’ve taken ownership of myself. I’m taking control of my life and my name and the music it’s attached to.”
As for Gaga and Katy, a rep told Rolling Stone in July of last year that Lady Gaga would present all of the relevant info she has to the court. It’s also known now that Katy has been deposed as a part of the lawsuit, so depending on what was said, it’s anyone’s guess on how this legal battle could possibly end.
So, what do you guys think about Kesha’s alleged texts to Lady Gaga? And, while you’re at it, do you think Dr. Luke can actually win this defamation suit?
