Kelly Clarkson Says She Lost 'Millions' By Refusing a Writing Credit with Dr Luke

Kelly Clarkson is speaking out about Dr Luke again after saying she was blackmailed into working with him last year.

This time, Kelly is saying that she lost millions of dollars because of a writing credit she never received on the 2009 song “My Life Would Suck Without You.”

“There’s a lot of times in my career where you don’t see my name on a song,” Kelly told Z100. “Sometimes I don’t write them, but a lot of times I do change the song in a way that probably you should ask for credit, but I don’t because the song was already great. I just made it more me and I think a lot of artists steal credit a lot from writers, which I think is super crappy because that’s their livelihood.”

“I did deserve it on that song just because I changed it a bit, but I really just didn’t—especially at that time, I was so frustrated that I was forced to work…basically, they were going to sit on my record unless I did what they wanted and I was so frustrated because I literally said, ‘Anyone in the world but this one person. I will work with anyone you want to put in my path. I just had a negative experience. The guy is super talented. I’m not negating that. That’s a fact, obviously,” Kelly continued, referencing Dr Luke. “And I asked not to work with Dr. Luke… just because I had not a good experience with him. It was one thing and they wouldn’t even give it to me.”

“I don’t want my name near his,” Kelly continued. “I don’t even want—I want to pretend this didn’t happen in my life and I want to forget it. There’s hundreds of thousands of dollars gone because of that…or millions actually. That song was huge,” she said. “I was making a point to the people working with me going, ‘This is how much I didn’t want to do this.’ I don’t care about the money. I don’t care about, ‘Oh, you’re going to be the most famous person ever if you do this.’ That’s not what holds weight in my life.”

Lady Gaga Responds to Dr. Luke's Subpoena: He Is 'Attempting to Manipulate the Truth'

Lady Gaga has issued a response after Dr Luke presented her with a subpoena to turn over some text messages between her and Kesha about his alleged sexual assault of her back in 2013.

“As Lady Gaga‘s legal team will present to the court, she has provided all of the relevant information in her possession and is at most an ancillary witness in this process. Dr. Luke’s team is attempting to manipulate the truth and draw press attention to their case by exaggerating Lady Gaga‘s role and falsely accusing her of dodging reasonable requests,” a representative for Lady Gaga told Just Jared.

Dr. Luke's Lawyer Explains Subpoena Served to Lady Gaga

A lawyer for Dr. Luke is speaking out after reports that Lady Gaga is being dragged into his legal battle with Kesha.

The singer reportedly talked with Gaga about Dr. Luke‘s alleged sexual assault against her in 2013 and now his legal team wants the text messages to be turned over.

Gaga reportedly sent in a “heavily-redacted four page spreadsheet of the text messages,” a lawyer for Luke told Page Six.

Now, they want to order Gaga to sit for a deposition about the text messages.

“In connection with Dr. Luke’s defamation claims against Kesha, various third parties are being deposed by both sides, including celebrities,” the lawyer told JustJared.com in a statement. “Dr. Luke’s counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha. This motion has become necessary because Dr. Luke’s counsel has not been able to obtain, despite repeated request, a deposition date from Lady Gaga.”

Dr. Luke & Kesha's Mom Release Joint Statement on Ending Tennessee Case

Kesha‘s mom Pebe Sebert has released a joint statement with Dr. Luke about why they are dismissing the Tennessee litigation between them.

Dr. Luke was suing Pebe for defamation and tortuous interference in Tennessee, claiming that she schemed with her daughter to smear his reputation by accusing him of rape.

Pebe filed a counter-suit with claims of intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress based on the abuse being alleged.

Dr. Luke vigorously disputes and denies that he ever raped Kesha Sebert, and he is asserting claims of defamation in a New York court against Kesha Sebert for making statements to the contrary, which statements Dr. Luke adamantly maintains are false,” the new statement reads.

Pebe admits she has no firsthand personal knowledge of the events occurring on the night of the alleged rape. Pebe was not present that night,” the statement continues. “At that time, Pebe was in Nashville, and Kesha was in Los Angeles. The dispute between Kesha and Dr. Luke about the events of that night is the subject of the New York case, and will be decided in that case. Accordingly, all parties believe it is appropriate to dismiss this Tennessee case and focus their attention on the New York case.”

Sony Cuts Reportedly Ties With Controversial Producer Dr. Luke

Sony Music has reportedly cut ties with Dr. Luke amid his continuing legal battle with Kesha.

The 43-year-old producer is no longer the CEO of Kemosabe Records and has no authority to act on its behalf, according to THR.

A page devoted to Dr. Luke on Sony Music’s website has also been removed.

Dr. Luke and Kesha have now been battling each other in court for several years, after Kesha accused the producer of sexual assault.

Most recently, Kesha‘s amended lawsuit was rejected by a judge and it is unclear how the Sony news will impact the trial.

Kesha's Amended Lawsuit Rejected in Case Against Dr. Luke

Kesha has faced a major setback in her fight against Dr. Luke.

The 30-year-old singer filed an amended lawsuit in her attempt to leave her contract with the music producer. She initially accused Dr. Luke of sexual abuse and tried to leave the contract by claiming a hate crime, but the judge rejected those claims last year, according to THR.

Kesha filed a proposed counter-suit in January in which she claimed Dr. Luke‘s company breached contract and she alleged that she tried to leave her penniless. His team responded by claiming she actually owed $1.3 million in addition to failing to provide notice and the judge sided with him.

“Here, Kesha made no showing that it would have been futile to send an appropriate notice or that she was prevented from doing so,” the judge said. “Thus, Kesha may not assert a counterclaim for breach of the Prescription Agreement.”

Dr. Luke Responds to Alleged Kesha Body-Shaming Emails

Dr. Luke‘s legal team has responded to alleged emails released by Kesha‘s team, in which he criticized her efforts to lose weight.

The emails filed with the court this week include a June 2012 exchange between Dr. Luke and Kesha‘s manager Monica Cornia, in which he allegedly wrote, “We were having a discussion on how she can be more disciplined with her diet. There have been many times we have all witnessed her breaking her diet plan,” according to the New York Post.

Dr. Luke‘s Lawyer, Christine Lepera, responded in a statement, “Kesha and her attorneys continue to mislead by refusing to disclose the larger record of evidence showing the bad faith of Kesha Sebert and her representatives which is greatly damaging to them. It also shows the tremendous support that Dr. Luke provided Kesha regarding artistic and personal issues, including Kesha‘s own concerns over her weight.”

The statement continues, “Rather than agree to a thorough disclosure, Kesha and her representatives improperly publicized, without Court permission, three out-of-context emails which do not present the full picture regarding the events they concern. For example, these emails do not show that the lyrics of ‘Crazy Kids’ were, in fact, rewritten at Kesha‘s request. Any claim by Kesha to the contrary is deceiving the public-just like her other meritless claims of wrongdoing by Dr. Luke.
