Kesha Is Appealing Her Injunction Ruling Against Dr. Luke

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaControversy

See the argument HERE!

Kesha isn't done fighting.

On Monday, the pop powerhouse filed legal papers to take her battle with Dr. Luke — AKA Lukasz Gottwald — to an appeals court.

Last month, the blonde was denied her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with the Sony producer, who she claims sexually assaulted and abused her.

The 29-year-old's lawyer, Mark Geragos, wrote in the docs that keeping his client in her contract is similar to slavery:

"First, the Court erred in basing its decision on its finding that Kesha could record without interference from Gottwald. Although it recognized that 'slavery was done away with a long time ago' and that '[y]ou can't force someone to work . . . in a situation in which they don't want to work,' the Court's ruling requiring Kesha to work for Gottwald's companies, purportedly without his involvement, does just that."

The attorney also explained that, if let out of her contract with her alleged abuser, Kesha could compensate Sony Music Entertainment for breaking her deal.

He argued that the judge didn't consider that alternative option would allow the singer to be free while also giving the music giant the ability to still get their money back, saying:

The soulful singer told Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio's The Daily Download that she's still strongly supporting the TiK ToK performer, saying:

"I love Kesha. I worked with her when I was a lot younger. I support her, regardless of what's going on."

She continued to say that the backlash that the star has received amid her ongoing legal battle with the Sony songsmith raises some serious concerns about the way women are treated, adding:

The incredible double standards that we [women] face on a daily basis, in the industry and just in the world, it's shocking. I would be so amused, and pardon me if this comes across as sexist, but I don't think a male artist would be in this position right now. Sorry."

But the Dangerous Woman remains unapologetic about that potentially controversial comment, confessing:

"If I'm speaking out about something I'm passionate about, I'm willing to take the brunt for fighting for what I believe in. And my fellow women are definitely something that I will always be one of the first to speak up about."

Wait, one more thing…

On Monday, Kelly Clarkson said Dr. Luke was "not a good person" in a radio interview, revealing she was "blackmailed" by her label to work with him! Later, a spokesman for the Kemosabe Records founder hit back at the Piece By Piece songstress saying she just "didn't like" to take direction in the studio.

This is all happening amid Kesha's allegations that the record producer sexually assaulted and held her music hostage throughout their working relationship together.

Sony's Lawyer Says Dr. Luke Is The Only One Who Can Terminate Kesha's Contract!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersBusiness BlitzKeshaSony

Get the deets HERE!

This isn't great news for Kesha.

After the 28-year-old was denied her injunction bid to get out of her contract with Dr. Luke, she took to Facebook to pen a lengthy statement about the controversial case.

In her post, she explained that she is still willing to work with Sony, who owns the producer's Kemosabe Records label, as long as the company is able to break the bond between her and the music maker.

However, an attorney for the corporation told the New York Times that while they aren't requiring the pop princess to work with her alleged abuser, they aren't able to eradicate her contract with him, saying:

"Sony has made it possible for Kesha to record without any connection, involvement or interaction with Luke whatsoever, but Sony is not in a position to terminate the contractual relationship between Luke and Kesha."

In fact, the legal rep admitted that only her supposed assailant can be the one to free her from her binding agreement, because she's signed to a separate deal with Luke's production company, Kasz Money.

The lawyer added:

Lady GaGa Calls Out Victim-Shamers While She Continues To Defend Kesha

Filed under: InspirationLady GaGaKeshaInstagramGirl Power

Lady Gaga is shutting victim-shamers down!

Lady GaGa is not here for victim-shamers.

The blonde has been an avid supporter of Kesha after she was denied her injunction bid against alleged abuser Dr. Luke. However, not everyone has been on the singer's side.

While the Sony producer claims the TiK ToK artist is lying about the allegations, others seem to feel that — if she was sexually assaulted — the blame still falls on her shoulders.

Wendy Williams even said that pop princess should have been responsible for catching her assailant on camera.

So, the American Horror Story alum is coming to her defense. On Thursday, the musical gal took to Instagram to share a comment discussing rape culture and call out those who fault the victims of these sad scenarios.

She shared a sentimental snap (above) of herself holding hands with the TiK ToK performer, in a clear symbol of solidarity.

We aren't surprised that the soulful songbird is taking a strong stance in the controversial case, since she's been very open about her own sexual assault, and her song on the tender topic is even up for an Oscar this year.

The powerful pop star kept the IG caption simple, echoing the popular hashtag:

On Wednesday, the blonde beauty took to Facebook to share her sentiments on the scandal, but first she wanted to once again express her gratitude to everyone who stood by her side, writing:

"I'm so, so beyond humbled and thankful for all of the support I've received from everyone. Words cannot really express the emotions I've gone through reading and seeing how amazing everyone has been to me. I can't believe that so many people all over the world took the time to show me support and love. Other entertainers who knowingly put their own careers at stake by supporting me, I will be forever grateful."
