Pebe Sebert refuses to stay quiet!
In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Pebe spoke out on Kesha's painful ordeal with Dr. Luke and life after the singer's failed injunction. The conversation was as emotional as it was disturbing.

While none of the harrowing details surrounding Kesha's rape allegations have changed, Pebe did give some insight as to why she and her daughter failed to go to the police after the producer's alleged 2005 rape. According to Sebert, it's a choice that still haunts her today.
Pebe revealed her regret:
"Looking back, I don't know why we didn't go to the police. Kesha told me not to do anything. She said, 'Mom, I just want to sing. I don't want to be a rape-case victim. I just want to get my music out.' I didn't follow my instincts."
Wow. What a haunting decision.
The choice was an especially difficult one considering Dr. Luke's alleged horrific mistreatment of the blonde. The momma claims her daughter would threaten to take her car to Mulholland and "drive off the cliff" or that she'd often declare:
"I would rather be dead then spend one more day with him."
The heartbreaking comments are not surprising in light of the reported abuse — not only did the music man allegedly repeatedly sexually assault the singer, but he'd often emotionally abuse her by telling her that Katy Perry was "so much better" while also labeling her a "fat f*cking refrigerator," during a music video shoot.
Despite the horror of losing the injunction, Pebe says support from artists like Taylor Swift has helped. The two allegedly spoke on the phone for two hours after Swift donated $250,000 thousand dollars to Kesha's cause.
In addition, the California resident is somewhat at "peace" with where she stands today:
"Kesha is so much better now. She wasn't comfortable with having to do this, but I think she realized as this thing progressed that she can advocate for sexual abuse or other things. The fact that she is at peace with that has really been healing."
Even with all this emotional progress and public accolades, at the end of the day Dr. Luke still legally owns the artist. The hit maker's refusal to let the 29-year-old go is what really hurts at the end of the day.
Summing up her daughter's awful predicament, Pebe stated:
"Dr. Luke basically owns Kesha until her death. He doesn't have to give her any money and is under no time constraints. She can't legally put any new music out, or he can and will sue her."
Woah. So tragic.
