Kelly Clarkson Says She Was Blackmailed Into Working with Dr. Luke

Kelly Clarkson is opening up about her experience working with producer Dr. Luke and she doesn’t really have good things to say about him.

“He’s not a good person to me. We’ve clashed, but I can’t really say anything other than that,” the 33-year-old singer said on Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O radio show.

Some of Kesha‘s fans have criticized Kelly for not sticking up for the singer during her legal battle with the producer.

“Her fans are like, ‘Oh, why don’t you stand up for her?’ I wasn’t there. I don’t know what happened specifically in their situation. Obviously I wasn’t in the room. But I can remark on his character,” Kelly said. “Unfortunately when you have that poor of character, like so many artists don’t like you and don’t like working with you. You know, that’s not normal. I get along with everybody I work with. He’s just not a good guy for me.”

“Obviously he’s a talented dude, but he’s lied a lot. I’ve run into a couple of really bad situations, musically. It’s really hard for me because he’ll just lie to people, and it makes the artist look bad,” Kelly continued. “He’s kind of difficult to work with and kind of demeaning. It’s just kind of unfortunate.”

Some of the songs that Kelly has worked on with Luke include “Since U Been Gone,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” and most recently, “My Life Would Suck Without You” in 2009.

“The last time I worked with him, I only worked with him because literally I got blackmailed by my label,” Kelly said. “They were like, ‘We will not put your album out if you don’t do this.’ It was a really hard time for me. And I tried to make the best of the situation.”

Kelly Clarkson Performs 'Piece by Piece' on 'Ellen' - Watch Now!

Kelly Clarkson performs her emotional song “Piece By Piece” on The Ellen Show, airing later today.

The 33-year-old pregnant entertainer performed the song last week on American Idol and had everyone in tears!

“The song is incredibly sad…It’s just incredibly…it’s sad, but hopeful.. cause a lot of us we didn’t have a bar to set as far as finding love and relationships. Or friendships in any form. So my sister and I had a conversation afterwards I ended up writing this song about how lucky we are because we both found incredible fathers and just lovers and men and just partners. I feel really lucky because I feel like a lot of girls with daddy issues don’t end up that way, we end up going the same,” Kelly told Ellen.
