UPDATE! 8:55 EST: Credible sources confirm Katy Perry is NOT working with Dr. Luke, and that this entire report is false.
Yeah… this better not be true!
In what's easily the most serious feud in pop music at the moment, Kesha and Dr. Luke have been wrapped up in a sexual assault legal battle for nearly two years.
While many female musicians have spoken out in support of the True Colors singer, we're hearing some pretty damning rumors that two of the industry's biggest female acts are STILL working with the Doctor to this day!
According to a Hits Daily Double report out Wednesday, both Katy Perry and Fifth Harmony have secretly utilized an otherwise blacklisted Dr. Luke on their 2016 albums — 7/27 and KP4.

Apparently, Lukasz not only had a hand in crafting the near-perfect Work From Home for Normani Kordei & Co. earlier this year, he has even more songs on Katy's upcoming Prism follow-up!
Plus, Dr. Luke's few remaining friends are even suggesting he was actually the one responsible for making Rise the official Olympics song for NBC!!!
Again, these are only rumors — for now — but we're reallllly hoping they're not true.
Do U think KP or 5H would risk the negative press to get secret help from the doctor??
