According to a lawsuit filed Tuesday October 14, Kesha is seeking freedom from her contract with producer Dr. Luke citing emotional abuse and an instance of alleged sexual assault.
Kesha’s camp gave this statement to Billboard.com
This lawsuit is a wholehearted effort by Kesha to regain control of her music career and her personal freedom after suffering for ten years as a victim of mental manipulation, emotional abuse and sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke. The facts presented in our lawsuit paint a picture of a man who is controlling and willing to commit horrible acts of abuse in an attempt to intimidate an impressionable, talented, young female artist into submission for his personal gain. Kesha is focused on moving her life and her career beyond this terrible time.
Kesha entered rehab back in January for an eating disorder.
UPDATE: Dr Luke is now reportedly countersuing Kesha for extortion.
Stay tuned as this battle heats up.
