Dr. Luke Demands To See Kesha's Medical Records — DETAILS

| Filed under: Legal MattersKeshaMental Health

Kesha

Oh wow.

Dr. Luke is now demanding to have access to Kesha's medical records.

According to Page Six, this is an effort to disprove the True Colors singer's claim that the Kemosabe Records label head sexually and verbally assaulted her.

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!

Seth Rogen's Wife Lauren Wrote An Incredibly Moving, Important Piece On The Will Ferrell Alzheimer's Movie Scandal

| Filed under: Film FlickersWill FerrellSeth RogenMental Health

Lauren Miller Rogen is a funny lady, but she's pretty damn serious about Alzheimer's.

The actress and screenwriter, who is married to star Seth Rogen, cofounded Hilarity For Charity specifically to raise awareness (and therefore research funding) for the degenerative disease that affected her mother.

So when she heard about Will Ferrell starring in an "Alzheimer's comedy," she figured she needed to investigate.

She writes in a poignant new essay:

"I have long advocated that Alzheimer's should be more prominent in movies and TV so that it can be destigmatized and humanized in the same way that cancer and HIV/AIDS have been. In order for Alzheimer's to receive the funding it needs and deserves, it needs to be understood by the millions of people who think memory loss is a normal part of aging (it's not) or even funny (it's definitely not)."

Not wanting to prejudge the material, Lauren tracked down the Black List script, which she thought was actually "well-written" even if it "does not portray the disease in an accurate way."

But there's something far more troubling, Lauren writes, than the movie. She explains:

"This is my 2 year old - Jack Jack. He was having nothing to do with any of the characters on our Disney vacation in November. You see, he has autism and is non-verbal. He is on the shy side with people he does not know. THEN… he met Snow White. I must have cried 1000 tears watching his interaction with her. He was in love."

| Filed under: InspirationKristen BellMental Health

Is she officially the world's best celebrity or what?!

Kristen Bell may be an A-List movie star, but if you were to ask anyone what they like most about her, they'd probably say her undeniable charm off camera.

However, just because she's known for her sweet demeanor doesn't mean she's always 100 percent confident on the inside… and that's okay!
