And the legal drama between Kesha and Dr. Luke continues…
As we previously reported, the Tik Tok artist asked a NYC judge on Monday for a protective order on her medical records so that they could not be made public amid her legal battle with the music producer and Sony Music. Unsurprisingly, the industry vet’s legal team was quick to respond to the blonde beauty’s most recent courtroom strategy.
Dr. Luke’s attorney Christine Lepra dished to People:
“Because Kesha made public accusations and in the case that she was allegedly harmed by Dr. Luke, the Court ordered her to produce her medical records. Now, Kesha wants to hide her records, while continuing to make self-serving, selective and misleading statements to hurt my clients publicly.”
Oof. In case you forgot, the hitmaker has previously accused Luke of sexually, physically, and emotionally abusing her. While the 43-year-old has vehemently denied the allegations, the songstress has stood by her lawsuit — which was originally filed in October 2014.
Dr. Luke (AKA Lukasz Gottwald)’s lawyer added:
“Our position is that that the Court├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and not Kesha’s lawyers ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ should decide whether Kesha’s medical information remains confidential given her public disclosures. We in fact offered to keep the records confidential pending the Court’s decision as to them. Kesha’s attorneys refused that offer, and instead filed their misleading motion for more press attacks on my clients.”
Huh. Although the twosome have battled it out quite a bit in the press, we do feel badly if such personal information belonging to Kesha becomes public domain. Talk about an intense situation!
What do YOU think? Does Luke’s camp have a point?
