Kesha has been doing pretty damn awesome since going to rehab and regaining control of her body, music career, and her life. But today, new reports detailed how difficult it actually could’ve been for her to get to this point.
The singer is suing her former producer, Dr. Luke, for emotional, physical, verbal, and sexual abuse she’s been suffering from since she signed with him at 18-years-old.
According to a brand new lawsuit, Kesha is claiming that Dr. Luke would force her to use drugs and alcohol and then make repeated sexual advances upon her, sometimes forcing himself on her.
There are numerous examples of abuse, including one story detailing how he forced her to snort something before getting on a plane and then he forced himself on her while she was drugged.
On another occasion, Kesha alleges that he had her drink with him one night, then gave her ‘sober pills’ which caused her to wake up the FOLLOWING afternoon, alone, naked in his bed while feeling sore and sick…
With no recollection of anything that happened after taking the pills.
She’s also saying that he is the reason behind her eating disorder, which she got treatment for earlier in the year.
The abuse, however, wasn’t purely sexual, as Kesha claims that he attacked her at his home in Malibu where she ran barefoot down the Pacific Coast Highway and hid from him the mountains.
Her lawsuit is asking that she be let go from her extremely intense and lengthy contract she has with Dr. Luke.
Kesha’s Lawyer, Mark Geragos made a statement to TMZ in regards to the lawsuit.
‘This lawsuit is a wholehearted effort by Kesha to regain control of her music career and her personal freedom after suffering for ten years as a victim of mental manipulation, emotional abuse and an instance of sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke.
The facts presented in our lawsuit paint a picture of a man who is controlling and willing to commit horrible acts of abuse in an attempt to intimidate an impressionable, talented, young female artist into submission for his personal gain. Kesha is focused on moving her life and her career beyond this terrible time.’
Holy effing shiz. This is serious.
These are truly some horrific crimes she’s saying were committed against her.
For now, we can only watch to see how this unfolds.
