Ke$ha’s Entire Dr. Luke Case Dismissed By Judge

Published: Wednesday 6th Apr 2016 by Sam

Ke$ha was dealt a devastating blow in a New York courtroom moments ago.

The Pop star’s entire case against Dr. Luke and Sony Music has been thrown out after a judge disagreed with her claims that she is a “slave” to the hitmaker.

Prior to now, the singer tried to get an emergency order giving her the right to get out of her Sony contract on grounds Dr. Luke allegedly raped her and that the label was tormenting her by holding her to the deal.

As widely reported, that argument was rejected in February.

Find out what the other components of the fuller case were and why it was not upheld below…

Via TMZ:

Kesha lost [the earlier] bid but pressed on to have her day in court, but Sony aggressively moved to get the entire case thrown out. The judge has now squarely sided with Sony, rejecting all of Kesha’s claims.

The judge didn’t buy Kesha’s “slavery” argument because Sony wasn’t pushing for her to work only with Dr. Luke … they would have made other producers available. By rejecting that offer, the judge felt Kesha was unreasonable.

Kesha had also argued she was the victim of a hate crime, claiming Dr. Luke’s alleged abuse was covered under that law. The judge said, “Although [Luke’s] alleged actions were directed to Kesha, who is female, [her claims] do no allege that [Luke] harbored animus toward women or was motivated by gender animus when he allegedly behaved violently toward Kesha.”

The judge ended with this … “Every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime.”


Whichever side of the debate one sits on, the reality is that the end result never  was going to produce an outright “winner.”

    Thats horrible.. We love you Kesha! You actually have #1s this decade unlike a certain Roach Queen.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 April 6, 2016

      Beyoncé has free will this decade unlike that meth head you feeling sorry for!

        Are you sure? Because she’s on the same label. #Slave #NoMasters

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 April 6, 2016


      You Stan for Rihanna, you should be last to talk anybody being a slave to their label. More importantly B6 is the last album Beyoncé owes Columbia before its time for renogoation. Beyoncé has made a lot happen for herself and company since being her own manager so it wouldn’t surprise me if she goes indepent eventually!

    Either way the damage is done, dr Luke’s image is tarnished.

  6. 2bad2bme April 6, 2016

    I don’t get this judges rule and none of what I read shows that he even acknowledged the fact that it is a possibility that this could have happened. She is a female signed to a huge popular label and company that can manipulate a struggling artist. They basically said she cried r*** because he is male and she is female.

  7. RihBobbleHead April 6, 2016

    Kii!!! Serves her lying ass right! Bxtches always cry r*** when n***** don’t return their calls

    • SlayLover April 6, 2016

      How messed up is your life that you think like that? You should be ashamed! What if that was your sister or mother?
      Sending light your way, hope your sad life gets better

      You’re disgusting.

    The courts keep ruling against her. Maybe the judge knows something that we don’t. She could possibly be lying

    • what? April 7, 2016

      Right, because most r*** cases see justice??? LOL

      The judge knows that their bank balance is about to increase, not sure about anything else.

      Not to mention if the judge knew anything then the defendant does and would have released it to help clear luke’s name. Luke still look’s guilty as sin.

  10. Reality April 6, 2016

    From my understanding she wasn’t suing luke for r***, she was suing Sony to get out of her contract and her reason for wanting to get out of it is because he allegedly r**** her. But if that’s the case then why didn’t she file a separate lawsuit against dr luke for r***?

    • what? April 7, 2016

      Yeah she did. In February she tried to get out of her contract this is the separate trial against fraudulent luke which has now been thrown out. They’re two separate cases.

  11. MsYonce April 6, 2016

    This is a mess

  12. IG : @mixedboy April 6, 2016

    If Sony indeed offered other producers outside of Dr. Luke then she was unreasonable. Work with others and press on Gurl.

  13. flawda April 6, 2016

    Dr. Luke gonna hit her with a slander law suit, watch!

  14. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? April 6, 2016

    Kesha girl let it go after this, if it is true then karma will pay Dr Luke a visit, but part of me feels like she’s dragging this on for attention.

    • #JACKIE April 6, 2016

      B**** shut your ugly ass up

      • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? April 7, 2016

        F***** your still alive, I just knew that dragging ended you. Sis drink a cup of rat poison?

  15. Kitty Puurrzz April 6, 2016

    I don’t buy for 1 second this girl was r**** & i don’t think the judge buys it either…

    I hope he hits her with a counter lawsuit of deformation of character & ruin her career too. Something just ain’t right about this story at all. I can’t put my finger on it. Anyways, she’s a grown ass woman. She should’ve known what kinda contract she was signing. And, if Dr. Luke was raping her … Her GROWN ASS should’ve been reported it to the police or had that n**** jumped. Shoot, I wish a n**** would walk around her f****** me up the ass & I’m not even in prison! I would have a gang of n****’s kill his b**** ass! Y’all r*** victims gotta stop playing the victim, even tho you are & start playing the SURVIVOR! Toughen up & start fighting back. You can’t walk around here crying like a lil weak baby b****! You gotta stay strong & fight that b**** back! All that “Oh r*** victims don’t tell” … Well, they asses needs to start telling a motha fucka! How in the hell is someone suppose to know your ass is getting b***-f***** on the daily-basis & if you ain’t telling someDAMNbody?!?! Shiiiiiit! I’ve noticed that these r***** sure do knows who the pick. You f*** around & pick the wrong woman and your head might get blown completely off.
    Now, Kesha’s music (noise) ain’t worth a damn. She was cute in 2010 but that’s as far as that goes. Her ass needs to woman up & follow thru with her contract, period. As a grown ass woman she should’ve known the contract she was signing before hand. And, if that n**** tries some funny r*** s*** again, baaabbyyyy it’s time to FIGHT! All that crying s*** goes out the window. The struggle is REAL out here on these streets. Life ain’t easy boo, bad things will happen to you, period. But, it’s about getting back on your feet & continue living to fight another day, until you drop dead! Millions of people around the world get r****/killed/beat up etc.. every single day. That’s just the world we live in. As the victims, it’s time to start fighting back… Instead of crying & complaining to the courts. Because obviously the courts don’t give a damn about you unless you got million upon millions of dollars.

    • what? April 7, 2016

      To any victims of r*** who just read through all this b******* please understand that this p**** knows nothing about this subject. They know nothing about what you went through or how ‘STRONG’ you are. Some people are ignorant pricks, hopefully they won’t die this way.

    • what? April 7, 2016

      Pretty sure that Kesha was about 18 when she signed her contract so you can stop with all this ‘grown ass woman’ s***.

      I don’t even know where to begin with all your b******* comments about what someone should do when they are r**** but you actually need to shut the f*** up. 1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted – I really hope you don’t say these things out loud. Guaranteed you would be traumatising at least one person who you hold dear to your heart.

      It’s so ridiculous and disheartening that you can speak this brazenly about a subject that you obviously know so little about. Most people who report r*** get told they are lying, or if it gets to court you tend to never see justice. You say kesha should have reported it like there was no kind of imbalance of power in her relationship with Dr Luke. Like there isn’t a significant age gap between them, like there’s nothing scary about reporting a r***, let alone when you know the person. If you can’t even slightly grasp why Kesha would have been scared to report this you really need to stop talking about these subjects! It’s dangerous what you’re saying right now.

      At what point do you hold the r***** accountable and stop blaming the person who was actually r****? That whole paragraph up there is literally in defence of a r*****. You almost sound guilty.

      Again, anyone who has been sexually assaulted please don’t listen to what this dickhead is saying.

    After the court dismissed it the first time I know Kesha wants to be free, but Michael couldn’t even get free, Mariah abusive husband was her manager or something and she divorced him and he still abused her and she was still stuck wit the contract! Kesha fulfill your contract, dr luke career is over just put out all albums at once to fulfill

  19. madbrax April 7, 2016

    Bye Felicia, guess all her lies and attempts at extortion blew up in her face

  20. Qing Dunk April 7, 2016

    Love and light to Kesha. It must be awful to have your freedom taken away by your abuser. #LandOfTheFree?

  21. Tran anti no honey love time but it okay girl April 7, 2016
