no title

Kesha's case against Dr. Luke, AKA Lukasz Gottwald, has been dealt one of the most savage legal blows since it began, certainly since she was denied an injunction last year.

The Timber singer is trying to get out of her contract legally after claiming her former producer raped her. But so far all she's gotten is sued by Gottwald for trying to ruin his name with the allegations.

Kesha previously tried to get out of her contract by describing her alleged rape as a hate crime on the part of Dr. Luke — but that was rebuffed.

This time, she attempted to amend her countersuit against the producer, trying two new tactics to argue her case.

In the first, she argued recording artists should have a legal backdoor available to them, like divorce for married couples. Her argument went:

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

Stephen Dorff better pay up!

Stephen Dorff is in a pretty big debt hole!

According to TMZ, the Blade actor has reached his full line of credit AKA $800K on his and his production company's City National Bank card! Yikes!!

Stephen was supposed to pay it all off by the end of 2016, but it seems like he still has yet to cut them a check.

So, what's a bank to do?? File a lawsuit!

They filed the docs on Wednesday for the 43-year-old to pay back all $800K and then an additional amount for interest, with the total at $805,953.23. Oh, and $10 in late fees.

That's no small amount.

We hope Dorff pays up soon or he'll be facing even more interest!

Paul Walker's Daughter Claims Porsche Employees Laugh Over Car Crashes — And She Has PROOF!

no title

Paul Walker's tragic death could have been prevented, and his daughter isn't going to rest until she proves it.

Meadow Walker's latest legal filing in her wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche accuses the car company of hiding key information by heavily redacting what they were legally forced to send to her legal team.

Apparently one of Meadow's lawyers was able to see through the blacked out sections on a more advanced computer. And what Meadow and the team saw sickened them.

In a series of emails, employees actually joked about the high number of crashes of the Carrera GT, the car in which Paul and his friend Roger Rodas died.

In an excerpt, one employee writes:

Beyoncé's Lawyers Better Get In Formation To Figure Out This $20 Million Lawsuit!

Beyonce's lawyers might want to get in Formation...

The last thing Beyoncé needs right now while pregnant with twins is a lawsuit…

Then again, there really is no good time to be sued for over $20 million!!

TMZ reports the Lemonade artist has been hit with another lawsuit over her latest album. This time, the songstress is being sued by Anthony Barré AKA Messy Mya's estate for sampling the late New Orleans rapper/Internet personality's voice on her hit track Formation.

According to the docs, Bey apparently never got their permission, and even tried to reach out to her team about it to no avail.

Messy Mya's estate is requesting over $20,000,000 in back royalties and "other damages."

Yikes! And if you've seen the momma of one's Formation video, you would see she paid tribute to the Louisiana city, so it's especially inneresting she would let this slip.

Anyway, you can listen to Mya's voice at the beginning and middle of it by pressing PLAY (below):

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:

Filed under: Legal MattersLady GaGaKeshaSony

Dr. Luke is going after Kesha!

The legal drama between Kesha and Dr. Luke AKA Lukasz Gottwald is far from over!!

In fact, the music producer has added a defamation claim in his lawsuit against the songstress on Monday over a text message she sent to Lady GaGa. As we previously reported, the message was added into evidence for the case earlier this month.

According to court docs, the text was sent to the Million Reasons singer on February 26, 2016, and Luke's legal team alleges it was part of a "malicious campaign to destroy Gottwald's reputation and career."

Yikes!

Ciara Drops $15 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Ex Future!

Filed under: Legal MattersCiaraBreakups

Ciara and Future

With a new husband and another baby on the way, it sounds like Ciara is officially ready to move on.

On Friday, Russell Wilson's love filed court documents in Fulton Country, Georgia to drop her $15 million defamation lawsuit against baby daddy, Future.

TMZ reports the 31-year-old did not receive any money from the rapper in exchange for dropping the suit, as it appears they've reached an agreement on the custody of their two-year-old son, Future Zahir.

The case has been dismissed "with prejudice," which means the R&B songstress can't refile at a later time.

This all stems, of course, from when the 33-year-old blasted CiCi for being a control freak and a bad mom — which she claimed hurt her career.

Seems like she's in a better place now!
