Lena Dunham Pens Powerful Essay In Support of Kesha

Lena Dunham has penned a powerful essay in support of Kesha and in her fight to end her contract with Dr. Luke after the alleged abuse he inflicted on her.

Kesha says that for ten years [Dr Luke] drugged, raped, and emotionally abused her and controlled her creatively and emotionally through threats and manipulations. She explained that her dealings with Gottwald ultimately exacerbated a life-threatening eating disorder, which required rehab. When she concluded that continuing to work with [Dr Luke] would kill her, she came forward and asserted herself,” Lena wrote in an essay in Lenny Letter, her newsletter. “Now Kesha has requested an immediate injunction that would allow her to begin to record without Dr. Luke. I think this seems like a pretty reasonable request. While the allegations of sexual assault and emotional abuse cannot be proven definitively, I think Kesha‘s words speak for themselves: ‘I know I cannot work with Dr. Luke. I physically cannot. I don’t feel safe in any way.’”
