Is ‘Swine’ singer Lady GaGa planning to help ‘Backstabber’ star Kesha prove that she was sexually assaulted by producer Dr. Luke? Well, if an email sent by Kesha’s mother to Luke is anything to go by, it would appear that she is…and isn’t the only one.
I experienced a lot . . . I had really awful experiences with men in the studio. Made me very uncomfortable. I didn’t feel like I was being cherished for my vocal talents, but [was] seen more as someone to take advantage of.
GaGa had that so say when quizzed on sexual abuse within the music industry recently, baring all for UK’s ‘The Times’ in a bid to raise awareness for the issue.
Quite interestingly, hours after the quote above was made public, an email sent by Ke$ha’s mother, Pebe Sebert, was published by Entertainment website ‘TMZ.’ Its original recipient? Dr. Luke, the hit making producer the ‘Die Young’ star claims drugged and raped her on numerous occasions throughout their working relationship.
The email reads:
We, me and Kesha and her friends, like Lady Gaga, are going to make all of this Really PUBLIC, in the next few days. Luke date raped Kesha when she was 18. Nicky Hilton‘s birthday? Paris Hilton‘s house? Luke gave Kesha pills. She ended up naked in his hotel room 2 days later. No longer a virgin?” Do we all want this to come out? Either Luke releases Kesha from all legal contracts, and gives me back all my publishing, or we, Kesha and I, tell the truth.And if I wind up dead, TRUST ME, IT’S IN WRITING TO CALL YOU AND LUKE.”
Released to support Luke’s argument that the mother and daughter were trying to extort him, the message confirms that Ke$ha did believe she would be supported by GaGa in her bid to expose Luke and the horrific acts she claims he carried out.
Her lawyer , Mark Geragos, explains:
It is telling that Dr. Luke would twist an email from a horrified and justifiably angry mother threatening to tell the truth — the truth! — about the predator that sexually assaulted her daughter. It is offensive — but not surprising — that Dr. Luke would try and pervert the words of a concerned mother to try and keep Kesha under his unilateral control against her will.
