Kelly Clarkson Denies That Dr. Luke Brought Her to Tears

Kelly Clarkson is denying that music producer Dr. Luke brought her to tears while working on their song “Since U Been Gone,” which a Kesha fan account tried to claim.

Kesha is currently in the middle of an ongoing legal battle against Dr. Luke as she says he sexually, physically, mentally, and emotionally abused her for nearly a decade and he won’t release her from her recording contract with him.

The fan account took quotes from Clive Davis‘ memoir, which Kelly has already blasted as inaccurate in the past, to say that “working with Dr. Luke brought @kelly_clarkson to tears. She isn’t forced to work with him like Kesha. Set Kesha Free.”

Here is how Kelly responded to the account: “I don’t know where this info came from but yeah this never happened ha! Why people just make shit up is amazing 2 me.”

Just this past week, Kesha got a small victory in her case against Dr. Luke.
