Dr. Luke Responds To Kesha's 'Out-Of-Context' Emails

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaHealth

Kesha and Dr. Luke

As expected, Dr. Luke AKA Lukasz Gottwald has responded to those damning emails released by Kesha's team on Wednesday.

ICYMI, the alleged messages were exchanged between the producer and the 29-year-old's manager Monica Cornia — and were meant to demonstrate the abusive nature of Dr. Luke's relationship with the songstress, both personally and professionally.

The Kemosabe Records founder's attorney, Christine Lepera, released a statement shortly after the "out-of-context" emails were given to the press saying:

"Kesha and her attorneys continue to mislead by refusing to disclose the larger record of evidence showing the bad faith of Kesha Sebert and her representatives which is greatly damaging to them. It also shows the tremendous support that Dr. Luke provided Kesha regarding artistic and personal issues, including Kesha's own concerns over her weight."

Lepera went on to say that "Dr. Luke looks forward to full vindication in Court":

Dr. Luke Says Kesha Still Owes Him Money — $1.3 Million To Be Exact!

The drama is far from over.

This situation only gets messier and messier.

As we previously reported, Kesha and Dr. Luke AKA Lukasz Gottwald went head-to-head with new court documents in the music producer's defamation lawsuit against the songstress.

Most recently, the Tik Tok artist claimed he wasn't allowing her to release new music despite handing over twenty new songs!

In response, Luke has decided to claim to a New York judge that Kesha has actually failed to pay him over a million dollars in royalties. On Monday, his legal team, Christine Lepera and Jeffrey Movit, presented more details of their contract:

"Plaintiffs have paid Kesha her royalties for all relevant accounting periods, while Kesha baselessly refuses to pay Plaintiffs the much larger sums she owes them. In December 2016 alone, Defendant received payments under her contracts with Plaintiffs in excess of $650,000. In sharp contrast, Defendant admits that she owes Plaintiff KMI over $1.3 million in ancillary royalties that she has failed to pay."

While the 29-year-old isn't making new music, she did agree to pay his company, Kasz Money, 10 percent of her net receipts anytime someone uses her name or likeness. She also has to pay him "the greater of 10 percent of her net tour receipts or 5 percent of adjusted gross tour receipts".

And if you count her Coachella appearance last year, the singer apparently has yet to do so.

Luke's team also claims he has in no way interfered with Kesha recording new music:

Dr. Luke's Lawyer Hits Back At Kesha, Alleges The Singer Is Totally 'Free' To Record New Music Elsewhere! BUT…

Here's another wrinkle to the ongoing drama between Kesha and Dr. Luke

The Tik Tok singer had her preliminary injunction against the music producer denied on Friday, but now Dr. Luke — born Lukasz Gottwald — has found some legal standing through his lawyer, Christine Lepera.

The attorney released a statement on Monday indicating that in the minds of the music producer's camp, Kesha's sexual abuse allegations were "unconvincing" and that she had no standing to void the recording contract.

Lepera's statement also has one very important part: Kesha is free to make and release music elsewhere, even under the recording contract as it currently is, without penalty from Sony or Dr. Luke.

Here's Lepera on Kesha's ability to record music elsewhere, in part:
