We're pretty sure this star-studded split is going to have people picking sides.
And now we're getting a little look at their rocky relationship!

What a shame…
As we wrote, Kesha was supposed to perform at the Billboard Music Awards on May 22 where she was reportedly going to make direct references to Dr. Luke. They were rumors she was even going to include his picture!
Sadly, on Tuesday, her performance was cancelled after the record producer heard about her intentions.
Later that day, the We R Who We R star took to Instagram to clarify what she was planning to do.
Well it was nice while it lasted…
However, it seems as though K was a little too quick to voice her interest in publicly shaming the record exec with a "statement performance" at this year's Billboard Music Awards, because he pretty much just blocked her from showing up. AGAIN!!!
Apparently, the Kemosabe boss originally agreed to let Kesha perform some of her songs LIVE at this Sunday's awards show, but changed his mind last minute when he heard that she was planning on directly referencing their sexual assault case during the act.
While the pop star could still take the stage to perform songs that aren't her own… we're not sure that ABC would want to risk upsetting Sony without the guaranteed ratings.
Still, we're also hearing Kesha will be in attendance in Las Vegas regardless, so at least she's not backing down!

*** WARNING: Mild Jane the Virgin Spoilers Ahead ***
That's because while we knew about Kesha and BritBrit's episodes ahead of time, Bruno surprised viewers as he popped up to sing an original song for Jane and Michael's (Brett Dier) wedding!
According to a press release, Bruno first wrote Rest of My Life years ago, but was never able to find the right home for it… until now!
Apparently, the Grenade singer is actually a huge fan of The CW dramedy and jumped at the chance to add something special to Jane's wedding night.
Too bad not everyone survived the wedding to talk about how great he sounded…
Ch-ch-check out Bruno Mars' emotional Jane the Virgin moment (below)!!!
The blonde's lawsuit had already been on hold because her alleged abuser's breach of contract countersuit in New York hasn't yet been resolved.
Luke's attorney Christine Lepara told Buzzfeed that she and her team want the LA judge to drop the case entirely, since the 29-year-old already had the chance to make her argument in The Empire State.
But instead of dismissing the songstress' suit, Barbara decided to keep it alive — or at least, in limbo — pending the results of the NY counterclaims.
This decision will be revisited on July 15, when the next status hearing is scheduled.
Kesha doesn't give any f*cks anymore.
Over the weekend, the Tik Tok singer took to Instagram to get candid about her mental health and recent legal battle against Sony and Dr. Luke. And it appears that the blonde beauty is O-V-E-R all of the drama as she's resolved to be "happy a damn clam."
LOVES it! The Die Young artist posted:
Dr. Luke is now demanding to have access to Kesha's medical records.
But what could the release of these records mean for other victims of sexual assault?
In a filing on Tuesday, Luke's camp said the 29-year-old "unambiguously waived" any therapist-patient privilege after trying to get out of her music contract by citing "physical, emotional and sexual trauma inflicted by Mr. Gottwald."
Kesha's attorneys argued against the filing saying that the purpose of the privilege is to protect "a person's innermost thoughts and feelings" — not to mention the damage violating the privilege could have on other rape victims' records in the future.
A Manhattan judge will rule which way to go on this one.
What do U think should happen, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!
Dr. Luke better watch out!
Sources have dished to TMZ that the Die Young artist is prepping for "a marquee performance" for the live awards show in Las Vegas on May 22 on ABC. Reportedly, the Tik Tok singer is planning to make DIRECT references about Luke and may even include images of him during her number.
That could end badly for the blonde beauty, right?? In case you forgot, the two industry vets have been at odds ever since
