The managers are saying that they were by her side when she was an up-and-comer in 2006, but she pushed them out when songwriter Dr. Luke came into the picture.
Her lawyer, Charles Ortner, however, is calling bullshizz, saying their agreement allowed her leave if they didn't line up a deal for her - which they didn't.
DAS says that Dr. Luke interfered with their arrangement and "induced, intimidated and convinced Ke$ha" to cut ties with them.
They're seeking more than $14 million in damages from her and $12 million from Dr. Luke.
"This lawsuit seeks to require her to pay him commissions on her RCA/Jive record deal that he had nothing to do with, long after she terminated him in writing."
Sounds totally shady of the former managers!
