Kesha Recalls Being Verbally Abused & Body Shamed By Dr. Luke In New Interview: 'I Tried To And Almost Killed Myself'

Filed under: Legal MattersRehabKeshaHealth

Kesha speaks out!

UPDATE 7:06 PM EST: Dr. Luke's attorney Christine Lepera released the following statement in response to the article:

"The New York Times Magazine profile piece that ran today unfortunately has many inaccuracies. This article is part of a continuing coordinated press campaign by Kesha to mislead the public, mischaracterize what has transpired over the last two years, and gain unwarranted sympathy. Kesha filed a shock and awe complaint of alleged abuse against Luke Gottwald in 2014 — for contract negotiation leverage. It backfired. She never intended to prove her claims. She has voluntarily withdrawn her California complaint, after having her counterclaims in New York for alleged abuse dismissed. Nevertheless, she continues to maliciously level false accusations in the press to attack our client. The reality is that for well over two years, Kesha chose—and it was entirely her choice—not to provide her label with any music. Kesha was always free to move forward with her music, and an album could have been released long ago had she done so. She exiled herself. It was not until months after the denial of her injunction motion – for the first time in June and July 2016–that Kesha started to provide the label with music. She provided 22 recordings created without any label consultation which were not in compliance with her contract, were in various stages of development, and which Kesha's own team acknowledged needed work. Then, and for the last several months, the label has been in discussions with Kesha and her team to choose the best music, create additional music, and work on the tracks created. A&R representatives of both Kemosabe and RCA have provided Kesha with detailed feedback in writing and in person on the tracks she provided to help her further develop the material. Kesha has also agreed with Kemosabe and RCA on a list of producers who will work with her on these tracks, a studio has been reserved for these sessions, and a budget for certain work provided. The creation of an album is a process, however what has clearly been communicated is that the aim is for a release date as early as possible. It is in the economic best interest of the label and Mr. Gottwald to put out a top selling album, and that takes time. In fact, the label suggested an early release of an advance Kesha track. It was Kesha's team who rejected this proposal.Kesha's claim in the article that she has no ability to earn money outside of touring is completely rebutted by well documented public court records which apparently escaped the article's attention."

Amid her legal battle against Dr. Luke, Kesha is opening up about the alleged verbal abuse she says led her to checking herself into rehab for an eating disorder in 2014.

In a new interview with The New York Times, the songstress candidly shared how the body shaming affected her:

Filed under: Legal MattersKeshaHealthSony

More drama between Kesha and Dr. Luke!

Kesha is not backing down!

As the songstress is currently battling Dr. Luke and Sony Music over sexual assault allegations, she's making sure her private medical records don't ever see the light of day.

On Monday, the 29-year-old filed legal papers to ensure "personal medical records, any diagnoses, or the names of any of her medical providers" can't be made public, as it's previously been revealed she's been ordered by court to hand them over to the music producer.

The over 900 pages of information "including gynecological, psychiatric, and rehabilitation records going back more than ten years" are at risk of being released, according to her lawyer James Pearl. In case you didn't know, Dr. Luke, AKA Lukasz Gottwald, actually rejected the "protective order of confidentiality", and claims he can use her info "without condition."


According to E!, the legal docs cite her reasoning to keep her info confidential:

The battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke marches forward.

On Tuesday, attorneys for the feuding celebs met in New York to hash out a conflict of interest for the judge presiding over their ongoing legal issues.

For those who missed it, in April New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Werner Kornreich ruled that Kesha could NOT record outside of her contract with Sony Music. Shirley made the decision even in light of the singer's claims of sexual assault against Luke.

Following the ruling, it was revealed Kornreich is married to a lawyer who works at a firm with ties to Sony. Obviously, lawyers for the 29-year-old were not pleased with the coincidence.

At the time of the questionable reveal, a rep for the judge explained to E! News:

Judge Who Threw Out Kesha's Case Against Sony Is MARRIED To A Lawyer With Ties To The Company — WHAT??

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaSony

Something smells fishy here…

On Tuesday, it was reported that Kesha may've never stood a chance in her case against Dr. Luke last April as the New York Supreme Court Justice who presided over the legal matter had ties to Sony and RCA. Wait, WHAT??

According to Page Six, judge Shirley Kornreich is married to a lawyer named Ed Kornreich — who just happens to be a partner at Proskauer Rose, a firm who has the record label as a client. Whoa.

Are Katy Perry & Fifth Harmony STILL Working With Dr. Luke Despite His Sexual Assault Case With Kesha?!

no title

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??

Kesha Takes On Dr. Luke & Gun Control At The Democratic National Convention — Read Her Remarks About 'Pain' HERE!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikSad SadKeshaSocial Issues

no title

You have to admire Kesha for her outspokenness and her dedication to social issues!

At the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia Tuesday night, Kesha spoke out on her ongoing lawsuit with Dr. Luke AND gun control issues. The emotional event was hosted by Gabrielle Giffords, a former member of Congress who was shot in the head in 2011.

While the singer mostly discussed the importance of stricter gun control laws, she also compared the pain of her issues with Luke to those affected by tragedy and hardships.

Speaking on the trials all "human beings" go through, the performer stated:

"I know we came here to boogie, but I have a few things to say. I'd like to thank Gabby Giffords for having me. I've been thinking about it because I feel like if you're a human being, you go through things, and you go through hurt. And every single one of us knows that emotion. I don't know if you guys know what I'm going through, I'm going through a lawsuit."

Well, the 29-year-old really tapped into a major truth here — EVERYONE goes through difficulties and "hurt" at some point or another!

The gay rights advocate then went on to use her experience as a platform for better gun control laws:

"We as a nation, we can't control who feels hurt. We can't control who feels pain and we can't control what you do with the hurt, and the pain and the anger. You can't control every single person and know how they're going to deal with things or if they're going to pick up a weapon—you don't know that. What we can control is who we give the f–king weapons to. I think the universe is screaming at us that there needs to be a change and we have to f–king listen."

Preach, girl! Given all the violence happening in America lately, it's hard to ignore Kesha's plea for peace and common sense.

Summing up her message, the beauty expressed:

"I do think love is something as humans we all have and I hope heals us. I really believe that love and empathy, it can heal us."

What a perfect way to end the evening. There's no better healing power than love!

So, what do YOU think of Kesha's speech?
