Kesha Sues Dr. Luke, Alleges Sexual Assault & Forced Drug/Alcohol Use

Kesha Sues Dr. Luke, Alleges Sexual Assault & Forced Drug/Alcohol Use

Kesha is suing her music producer of 10 years Dr. Luke, saying he was very abusive towards her and led her into a horrible spiral.

The 27-year-old entertainer alleges that Dr Luke forced himself on her sexually on multiple occasions, and often forced her to use drugs and alcohol.

“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 an instance of sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke,” Kesha‘s lawyer Mark Geragos told TMZ. “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 ultimately wants a judge to let her out of her contract with Dr. Luke.

Earlier this year, Kesha entered a rehab program and is doing much better.

    Stand tall and Proud and SPEAK OUT. Don’t let the abuser get away with his crimes. It takes courage to speak out ..good for her!

  • john

    This washed up talentless hick will say and do anything for publicity, I didn’t for one minute believe she had an eating disorder, more like she went away to have plastic surgery and now this, I have a hard time believing it, the drugs have screwed up her reality.

  • sweetness

    @john: oh

    really what kind of publicity does being sexually assaulted do for one? how in your mind does saying she’s been assaulted and plied with drugs going to be a boon to her career?

  • guest

    If anything I bet she was the aggressor. I don’t see this girl as being anybody victim.

  • Greg


    I don’t think someone would make up a story about going to rehab to get plastic surgery. If she wanted to get plastic surgery (which she didn’t) she could have easily spent time recovering at her home. This is a serious issue and I don’t think she would lie about something of this nature.

    @john: she did seem genuinely f*cked up and confused and I don’t think it’s because of the need of attention. Her life drama didn’t generate that much attention as well (not as much as say Miley’s makeover). The fact that an older man controlling her career and taking advantage of her seems more credible to me and I think if she did wanted attention there would have been better ways (i.e: the trend of claiming the be a feminist, doing something racy or even trying tv reality)

    She so fake, I can’t stand liars for fame.
    Look what happens to kids when they have no care in the world but got plenty of beer.

  • Luke team

    “impressionable, talented, young female artist”

    luke is only talented here.

    lets see the truth — she worth absolutely nothing. her poor alcoholic mother is manipulate her trying get a little bit of fame.

    kesha is so hypocrite

    @guest: Kesha has a reputation for being a really nice and sweet girl. She’s not tough at all. Definitely not someone who would be an aggressor. She was bullied and ostracized when she was in school because she struggled with her weight. That obviously left her with serious self confidence issues. She’s exactly the kind of person who would be easy to take advantage of.

  • JC

    @Luke team: Luke is talented no doubt. But Kesha is far more talented. Listen to songs like Past Lives and Sunday Morning that Kesha did without Luke and then listen to stuff like Die Young that she did do with him. Her non-Dr. Luke stuff is far superior. It’s deeper and more diverse than the stuff he was forcing her to do.

  • TheTruth

    What a ungrateful bit*h. Without him she wouldn’t have a career to even speak of and her clam to fame would be in the background of that Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie TV show. Its more like she looking someone to blame for her own problems. Very sad and kinda of pathetic. From the start she was already a complete mess.

  • amy

    This is not the first story like that. I heard that egomaniac fashion designer Marc Jacobs cruelly tortures a talented young girl. He’s been stalking her since she was 16. Jacobs stole her ideas and harassed her. Jacobs controls Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Kate Upton and more. Read the details at : styleangelique blog spot co uk

    Go Kesha! so glad to see her fighting so hard to get back control of her life and music. One of the few artists who is fighting back . Lots of people are not aware of the industry and how dark and dirty it is. Lots of these artists “sell” their soul to the devil. A rise to fame in exchange for control of what the artists get to release, their image, sexual exchanges. Basically manipulated like a puppet. The artists that have a “breakdown” are the ones who are trying to get out, the ones that have managed to have a form of consciousness despite all the abuse they have taken.

  • come on now!

    I dont know her well but dont you think someone with his reputation, if needed to get laid could find someone else?
    She definitely does not come from a decent background.
    I doubt he actually assaulted her. I think she is trying to make herself look better than she is bc she is of control by gross standards

  • stop

    Good for her!! I really hope everything works out .

  • Newcomer

    I read her lawsuit — it’s all about money and copyright money. “He rape me — I want new record deal”.
