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.’”

Kesha has accused Dr. Luke of sexual assault during their years of collaboration, and a judge recently ruled that she could not get out of her contract.

Lady Gaga Defends Kesha: She's Being 'Very Publicly Shamed'

Lady Gaga has opened up in detail about why she is supporting her friend Kesha in her fight to rid her connection from Dr. Luke after allegations of sexual assault.

“Well, I think that people should just know that there’s so much more, you know, than what meets the eye in a case like that. And it’s so kind of deceiving when you read about contracts and you read about what people owe each other in terms of power and records. The truth is, I feel like she’s being very publicly shamed for something that happens in the music industry all the time, to women and men. I just want to stand by her side because I can’t watch another woman that went through what I’ve been through suffer, you know?” the 29-year-old entertainer told Carson Daly on his 97.1 AMP Radio radio show.

“And have everyone have a go at her as if, you know, she’s lying. I mean, I have to say. I talk to her every day. I’m friends with her personally and what I’m watching her go through is not only something I’ve been through, but something that’s really devastating to witness. Somebody that has such a beautiful light within them, so much talent to give. Just to see that light burn out because they feel that no one’s listening to them, I feel that it’s my responsibility to stand up for her when there’s a lot of people that are not listening to her plea for love, for people to have compassion and empathy,” Gaga continued.
