Ben Folds Opens Up About Kesha's Dr. Luke Drama & Says Their Performance At The Billboard Music Awards Was Her 'Declaration Of Independence!'

See what Ben has to say about the Dr. Luke drama!

Kesha really is taking her life back.

On Sunday, the pop princess earned a standing ovation after slaying a powerful performance of Bob Dylan's It Ain't Me Babe alongside Ben Folds and violinist Rob Moose.

Everyone was eagerly awaiting the 29-year-old's time on the T-Mobile Arena stage, considering Dr. Luke had almost banned her from singing during the show.

On Monday, the former Ben Folds Five frontman opened up to Billboard about their emotional collaboration, explaining that the Sony producer screwed up their original plan by pulling the plug:

"We were slated to do it for weeks, and [last week] she was heading over to my house and we were getting ready to practice and I got the word that it was in fact canceled. Rob Moose [of yMusic], who played violin [at the BBMAs], and I had arranged it for a small chamber ensemble. And [during the Orpheum performance last week], it went over really well. But then we got the call: 'Actually, you're on [for the BBMAs], bring the ensemble.' 'Oh, we can't because they're all on airplanes now,' so Rob and I just pared it down."

But the 49-year-old admitted that the TiK ToK artist didn't have any intention of calling out her alleged abuser at the ceremony.

He explained why the singer kept her promise to leave the Kemosabe Records label head out of her TV time, saying:

Kesha's Mom GOES OFF On NY Judge Who Denied Her Daughter's Injunction After Dr. Luke Cancels The Singer's Billboard Music Awards Performance!

See what she has to say!

Kesha has already reacted to her cancelled Billboard Music Awards performance, but now it's her mom's turn to sound off on the controversial call.

And to say she's not happy is a HUGE understatement.

On Wednesday, Pebe Sebert took to Twitter to call out the people responsible for pulling the plug on her daughter's upcoming performance. And believe it or not, she's not taking aim at Dr. Luke — well, not directly.

The 60-year-old went on social media to completely slam the American legal system, firing shots at the New York judge who denied the pop star her injunction bid to get out of a contract with her alleged abuser.

And while the Kemosabe label head was the one who decided to yank Kesha from the show, the momma-of-three decided to place blame on the woman who allowed the Sony producer to continue controlling her daughter's career, writing:

Demi is open and honest about overcoming her demons.

The brunette beauty opened up about how substance abuse affected her attitude, saying:

"Prior to getting sober, I was one of those people who was like, I don't give a f*ck, whatever. And I used that as an excuse to do whatever I wanted. I was a nightmare to work with."

The 23-year-old even went on to use some pretty harsh words to describe her old behavior, admitting she was:

California Judge Keeps Kesha's Sexual Assault Case Against Dr. Luke On Hold! Find Out Why!

Filed under: Legal MattersKeshaSex

Get the details on the decision!

Kesha may be taking her life back right now, but she still needs to wait to take on Dr. Luke in California court!

On Monday, Los Angeles Country Superior Judge Barbara Scheper decided to keep the pop star's sexual abuse case against the Sony producer on hold, at least for now.

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.

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.
