Lady GaGa has officially been subpoenaed.
As we’ve reported, Dr. Luke has filed documents demanding the Bad Romance singer — one of Kesha‘s good friends who apparently knew of her allegations against Dr. Luke very early on — sit down for a three-hour deposition with Luke’s legal team.
GaGa has been dodging Dr. Luke because she doesn’t want to be deposed in the Kesha case — but now it’s looking like she doesn’t have a choice.
A spokesperson for the music producer said on Saturday:
“In connection with Dr. Luke’s defamation claims against Kesha, various third parties are being deposed by both sides, including celebrities. Dr. Luke’s counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha … His motion has become necessary because Dr. Luke’s counsel has not been able to obtain, despite repeated request, a deposition date from Lady Gaga.”
The deposition will reportedly focus on a text exchange between GaGa and the Rainbow songstress, who allegedly “asserted that Kesha and another (unidentified) female recording artist├óΓé¼┬ª had both been raped by Gottwald” during the conversation. Luke’s team argues this led to GaGa joining “Kesha’s smear campaign against Gottwald and spread negative messages about Gottwald in the press and over social media.”
