Kesha Denied Release from Her Contract with Dr. Luke

Kesha Denied Release from Her Contract with Dr. Luke

Kesha looks solemn while leaving the New York Supreme Court following her defeat on Friday (February 19) in New York City.

The 28-year-old singer tried to get released from her Sony recording contract with producer Dr. Luke as she alleges that he has sexually abused her over the years.

Judge Shirley Kornreich denied the request.

“You’re asking the court to decimate a contract that was heavily negotiated and typical for the industry,” the judge said. She stated that Dr. Luke has invested $60 million into Kesha‘s career so it is “the commercially reasonable thing” to keep the contract going.

Kesha‘s fans were outside the courthouse for the #FreeKesha protest.

    As someone tweeted, Chris brown can be extremely violent towards many women and still have a career, yet kesha has the courage to come forward about rape and is denied her freedom. Sad world we live in #freekesha

    hmmm can you state who you refer to when you said many women? It was well documented there were no many women only claims that were dismissed because there were no foundations.

    That doesn’t sound fair. It reminds me of when Britney Spears was conserved by her family and had to keep working to keep the money coming in despite the fact that she was effectively stripped of her rights (to determine her own living situation for example). Is Dr. Luke demanding an album out of Kesha even though she no longer wants to work with him? Injustice. Contract or no contract, artists need freedom to create.

    Chris Brown’s history gets mentioned any time he performs/does an interview/makes an appearance, etc. His career has not recovered. A better comparison would be John Lennon or Sean Penn, who are still well respected and/or given awards despite their pasts.

    This is so damn wrong!

    She did so much harm for real rape victims with her lies. #shamekesha

    I can’t see Chris Brown’s career. Don’t repeat everything you read. Use your brain.

    Don’t be a child. She signed it.

    It’s was the best contract she was offered when she was nothing. He invest his money and time in her popularity.
