The 27-year-old singer Kesha filed a lawsuit against her producer Dr. Luke, claiming he has been abusing her for almost ten years. According to FOX411, Dr. Luke has also filed a lawsuit against the pop star, claiming that both Kesha and her mother “are engaged in a campaign of publishing outrageous and untrue statements about Dr. Luke.”
TMZ obtained Kesha’s lawsuit in which she says she was sexually, physically and verbally abused by the producer since she was 18 years old. The singer claims that he drugged her, forced himself on her and attacked her on various occasions. Kesha is requesting that a judge let her out of her contract with Dr. Luke.
Kesha’s lawyer Mark Geragos told FOX411 in a statement that Dr. Luke wanted to keep Kesha ‘’under his tyrannical control.’’
“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 says all the claims are completely false.
“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 Gottwal.
