Private messages shared between Kesha and GaGa were obtained by the courts as part of the legal battle the former is engaged in with Luke after she told the world that he had drugged and raped her.
Much to Luke’s horror, one of these messages saw a heartbroken Kesha tell GaGa that Luke had also assaulted Katy. This, prompting an infuriated GaGa to join Kesha’s fight against sexual abuse.
On February 26, 2016, Defendant [Kesha] sent a text message to Stefani Germanotta p/k/a/ Lady Gaga which repeated Defendant’s false claim that Gottwald raped her,” the documents read. “In this text message, Defendant also falsely asserted that Gottwald had also raped Kathryn Hudson p/k/a/ Katy Perry.
“Following this text message conversation, and with Defendant’s encouragement, Ms. Germanotta spread negative messages about Gottwald in the press and on social media,” it continues. “For example, in February 2016, Ms. Germanotta posted multiple articles discussing Defendant’s defamatory statements on her Twitter page.
“Subsequently, in March 2016, Defendant and Ms. Germanotta coordinated to post graphics on their Twitter and Instagram pages (which were created by Ms. Germanotta) that referred to Defendant’s claims of sexual assault by Gottwald.
Katy is yet to respond.
