Sony Breaks Silence on Kesha & Dr. Luke Case for First Time

Sony Music is speaking out for the first time about the Kesha and Dr. Luke case.

The 28-year-old singer is currently trying to get out of her record contract with her alleged abuser’s label Kemosabe Records, which is a subsidiary of Sony.

“Sony has made it possible for Kesha to record without any connection, involvement or interaction with Luke whatsoever, but Sony is not in a position to terminate the contractual relationship between Luke and Kesha,” the company’s attorney, Scott A. Edelman, told The New York Times. “Sony is doing everything it can to support the artist in these circumstances, but is legally unable to terminate the contract to which it is not a party.”

When Kesha signed her record contract with Dr. Luke in 2005, it was between her and his company Kasz Money. He later formed a distribution deal with Sony’s subsidiary RCA/Jive in 2009, which brought Kesha to the label.

When RCA/Jive dissolved two years later, Kesha‘s contract transferred over to Kemosabe Records, according to Billboard.

    He never raped her, read lawsuit — it described clearly.

  • Gina

    I don’t have to read anything. I believe he raped her. And if it was described clearly, then this wouldn’t be up for discussion in the first place.

    If I told people you raped me, would that make you a rapist?
