Kesha Reluctantly Drops Lawsuit Against Dr. Luke

Published: Tuesday 2nd Aug 2016 by David

With hopes of restoring her career in music, the vocalist Kesha has dropped her sexual assault lawsuit against her former mentor Dr. Luke.

Full story below…

With the support of a number of her Pop peers, Kesha took on the producer after claiming he had drugged and raped her several times during their professional relationship.

Her decision to step forward with these allegations revealed that she was unable to release new music away from her alleged rapist.

This week, she decided to drop the lawsuit against he and the record label he signed her to and, to free herself from the contract, submitted 28 songs she hopes to release as soon as possible.

“Kesha is focused on getting back to work and has delivered 28 new songs to the record label,” Daniel Petrocelli, partner at O’Melveny & Myers (the firm she has hired to represent her), told Buzzfeed. “We have conveyed to Sony Music and the label Kesha’s strong desire to release the single and an album as soon as possible.”

There’s more.

If Dr. Luke does not release her new material, Kesha could use it as evidence that Luke and Sony Music Entertainment are intentionally stifling her progress as musician.

However, Luke could claim that ‘the music provided was not commercially satisfactory’ and use that as the basis for blocking its release.

His lawyer had this to say about his alleged victim’s new move:

If Kesha is voluntarily dismissing her claims in the California case, it is because she has no chance of winning them. Earlier this year, she lost her meritless counterclaims against Dr. Luke in the New York Action. Recently, the California Court invited Dr. Luke and the other defendants to move to dismiss Kesha’s claims in that action.

    Kesha, has been dragged by her label and dr. luke. Sad that she is a “VICTIM” and still a prisoner. Chris Stokes/Marques Houston who also molested/r**** Bow wow, Lil fizz, Omarion, and all those boys also is allowed to roam free with no jail time or judge time. Sad sad stuff

    It all comes down to her not having any proof to support her claims. I do believe her allegations but a contract is a contract.

    Sorry I don’t believe she’s a victim

    I predicted this!! When you lie, the lie comes to light

      Lie? Please stop. The only reason she did this is because she didn’t have tangible proof. By your standard OJ didn’t kill Nicole.

      • john bieber August 2, 2016

        WELP, he legally did not! We can’t assume

      • Bet on Bey August 2, 2016

        Legally he didn’t? But she and her lover are dead. Do you think they killed themselves ?

    Fight the good fight, Kesha! You’re braver than most people in the industry who have felt powerless in their careers.

    This happens all the time, the victims have to play the abuser’s game or their life stops.

    Why is that when any man is accused of r*** it is automatically assumed to be true? I’m not saying Dr.Luke is innocent but its annoying how everyone assumed he was guilty and condemned him before the trial even began. It could very well be that she is lying.

    Huh? I read that she was to drop it in LA and take it up in NY?

  14. Kitty Puurrzz August 2, 2016

    I knew she was lying

  15. ow Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely Ukuyikiji August 2, 2016

    Wow I read that she’ll take it to new York court
