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:

Ariana Grande Continues To Stand Up For Kesha During Her Legal Battle With Dr. Luke!

Ariana's got Kesha's back.

Ariana Grande is standing by Kesha.

The pint-sized pop princess previously voiced her support for the blonde after she lost her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with Dr. Luke, the producer who allegedly raped and abused the 29-year-old.

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."

Filed under: Legal MattersKesha

She how she's reacting to all the online love!

Kesha is still silent on social media after being denied the injunction in her Dr. Luke case. But that doesn't mean she's not grateful for all the love she's seen since.

As you already know, on Friday a judge denied the pop star's request to get out of her contract with the Sony music producer because she claimed he sexually assaulted her.

"She loves the support and has been blown away by it. This was a horrible blow but she is going to keep fighting and she is absolutely blown away by the support from other artists and her fans."

The insider also added that the hitmaker isn't going to give up because this motion didn't go her way, explaining:

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

no title

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:

Sorry, NJ-ers. GTL is a juggernaut!

Snooki & JWoww are going back to the beach this Summer to film another season of their eponymous MTV show, despite legal attempts from New Jersey locals to keep their hood controversy-free.

A request for an injunction made by residents of Pelican Island, the location for the house in Snooki & JWoww, was denied this week in the face of a lot of local support.

Guess judges love Jersey Shore, TOO!

Snooks seems especially excited to be back in business, tweeting this weekend:
