Singer Kesha says she was offered the opportunity to record new music outside her contract if she were to recant allegations she made against the producer, Dr. Luke–real name Lukasz Gottwald–saying he sexually and mentally abused her.
Dr. Luke has denied the allegations and says he never even had sex with Kesha.
But Kesha paints a different picture.
“THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.”
Gottwald signed the singer to a contract in 2005, and she first made her accusation of abuse in 2014. In February, a New York judge denied a preliminary injunction that would have allowed Kesha to record outside Dr. Luke’s influence.
Kesha is a Sony recording artist and has accused the label of throwing her under the bus to save Dr. Luke’s reputation.
A number of other artists and many of Kesha’s fans have expressed support for her on social media.
