Kesha's Mom Details Years of Abuse By Dr. Luke: He 'Almost Destroyed Us'

Kesha‘s mother Rosemary Patricia “Pebe” Sebert has given a tell-all interview about her daughter and the years of abuse she allegedly endured working with producer Dr. Luke.

“She was a prisoner. It was like someone who beats you every day and hangs you from a chain and then comes in and gives you a piece of bread. Luke would say, ‘You look nice today,’ and send her into ­hysterics of happiness because she was programmed to expect nothing but abuse,” Pebe told Billboard about her 29-year-old daughter. “Kesha‘s allowed to work with another producer. But Luke gets to approve them. He gets to approve of anyone she works with. He has final say over everything….Luke almost destroyed us. And he has done it intentionally.”

“I wanted Kesha to come forward a long time ago and end this relationship with Dr. Luke immediately after the [alleged] rape. But if she wanted to have a shot at the music business, she had no choice but [to work with him],” Pebe stated about why Kesha continued to work with Dr. Luke. “He saw her as a cash cow and started manipulating her all the time. She thought all her dreams were finally coming true, but this was just a f–ing trip to hell.”

“Bulimia is a control issue,” Pebe continued about Kesha‘s downward spiral. “I really believe that the further this thing got with Dr. Luke, the less control she had and the worse her bulimia got, because it was the only thing [that gave her] control.” Pebe details one incident where Dr. Luke called Kesha a “fat f–ing ­refrigerator.”

Kesha is so much better now,” Pebe reported. “She wasn’t comfortable with having to do this, but I think she realized as this thing progressed that she can advocate for sexual abuse or other things. The fact that she is at peace with that has really been healing.”

Adding about Taylor Swift‘s $250,000 donation, Pebe said, “It was really random. Kesha was like, ‘Are you sure it’s not some scammer?’ And then she said, ‘I would be honored if she wants to do that.’”

    What? He gets to approve of anyone she works with? Unbelievable abuse!

    First off what’s his real name? You know the one his moms named him? This referring to a grown man as Dr.Luke when he has no doctorate in anything seems so strange.

    Second I couldn’t agree more he is scum… to just continually torture another human being just because you can is horrifying to think about.

    The arrogant abuser thought he’d won with the outcome of the court ruling but now Karma is biting him in the ass. With high profile artists like Adele and Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson plus Taylor Swift on Kesha’s side this dirt bag Dr. Luke..has no where to go but down. He’s being exposed for the pig he is. Sony know having this rapist in control of artist on their payroll looks bad. He’s not worth tarnishing their relationship with Adele. If that pig wasn’t so arrogant he’d have cut Kesha loose and be free to keep his connection to Sony. Now his name is just dirt. What new talent wants to work with him?
