Lady GaGa SNAPPED On Dr. Luke's Lawyer In Heated Unsealed Deposition Over Kesha's Alleged Rape

Lady GaGa has made no secret about the ongoing trauma she suffers as a sexual assault survivor, so it’s no shock to hear she went off on one of Dr. Luke’s lawyers while being deposed as part of the legal battle between the music producer and Kesha (full name Kesha Rose Serbert).
According to court docs recently obtained by The Blast, GaGa was experiencing PTSD reactions from her own sexual assault before the September 2017 hearing.

Her lawyer said ahead of the unsealed deposition:

“I just want everyone to understand that, as she has publicly stated in other contexts, as a sex abuse survivor, and I know this from my own personal experience with family members, there are trigger events, and this deposition has proved to be a trigger event for Ms. Germanotta. And she has experienced in the past few hours some PTSD reactions which is causing some trauma and emotional reactivity. So she is crying now, the record will reflect.”

After the hearing began, the A Star Is Born star told the court that she had first met Kesha at Luke’s home studio, where the Tik Tok singer was allegedly in a back room wearing only underwear. She recalled:

“What we discussed was, what I recall was her immense sadness and depression and fear. She was visibly very different than when I had seen her before, and – but I can’t say specifically what we spoke about. I just recall it was emotional and I wanted to be there for her.”

When the producer’s lawyer asked GaGa whether she believes the rape accusations have damaged Luke’s reputation, she replied:

“I don’t feel at liberty to speak for the entire world. So if you are asking what my view is of his reputation, I made my view of him and his reputation when I saw her in that back room. That was an image that – of something that happened to me, and I felt and knew in my heart that she was telling the truth, and I believe her.”

Luke’s lawyer then asked if the Oscar nominee had “absolutely no personal knowledge or information as to any interaction between him and Ms. Sebert, correct, physical or otherwise,” to which she responded:

“Yes, I do have knowledge. She told me he assaulted her.”

The lawyer then asked if GaGa had any other evidence beyond Kesha’s claims. She hit back:

“Well, you know – when men assault women, they don’t invite people over to watch. And when this happens in this industry, it is kept extremely secret, and it is compounded by contracts and manipulative power scenarios that actually include this very situation that we are all in right now.”

Dang. GaGa came to play!
But so did Luke’s attorney. She then asked the songstress:

“But, again, there are people that are falsely accused of rape, aren’t there? You think there has never been a false accusation of rape?”

At that point, GaGa snapped:

“You – how about all of the women that are accused of being liars and how she was slut shamed in front of the world, how about that? I have factual knowledge of her depression. I have factual knowledge of her need for support and love. I have factual knowledge of the spiral that I watched that girl go down. I have factual knowledge of trauma. I am informed and intelligent about this issue. That girl has experienced serious trauma and she is in the middle of the right now. And you are all a party to it.”

Later on, GaGa once again claimed to know the truth about Luke’s treatment of Kesha — promoting the lawyer to ask, “You weren’t there, correct?”
To which the 32-year-old songstress responded angrily:

“Why on earth would this girl tell the entire world this happened? Why on earth? Do you know what it’s like for survivors? Do you know what it’s like to tell people? Don’t you roll your eyes at me. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

Again, wow.
Clearly, GaGa was not afraid to make an enemy out of the music producer. For that, she should get all the awards.
Kesha and Dr. Luke’s legal battle is ongoing.
