And even though police are investigating the show over the alleged incident, Dr. Robert Huizenga is firing back.

The former NFL physician is coming after the season 7 alum for ruining his reputation, by suing her for making false accusations.

The medical professional claims he has never put any of the reality show's contestants in harm's way.

And that's not all! He's also slapping the New York Post with a suit for publishing Joelle's story in the first place.

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.
