Singer Kesha Ordered To Keep Her Contract With Producer Who She Says Raped Her

Singer Kesha was inconsolable at the Manhattan civil court on Friday when a judge ruled that she couldn’t break her exclusive recording contract with Sony and music producer Dr. Luke. The pop star says the producer raped her and called her a “fat f***ing refrigerator.”

Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich said that Kesha would not have to work directly with Dr. Luke, whose real name is Luke Gottwald.
“She’s being given the opportunity to record, she can record,” Judge Kornreich said. “She does not have to have any interface at all with Mr. Gottwald in recording or producing.”

Kesha’s lawyer, whose full name is Kesha Rose Sebert, has argued that the singer’s “been on ice for two years” because she’s been unable to break a contract that she has with Dr. Luke.
“She doesn’t want to work with him,” Kesha’s lawyer Mark Geragos told the judge.

Kesha, 28, is suing Dr. Luke, 42, saying he raped her in an aeroplane and drove her to eating disorders.
He even allegedly called her a “fat f***ing refrigerator,” at one point. Dr. Luke has denied the allegations saying the claims are “blatant extortion.” He countersued the singer in New York saying she fabricated the allegations to get out of her contract.

Dr. Luke credits himself with the success of Kesha and wants to keep her.
“When Kesha was discovered by my client she was no one,” Dr. Luke’s lawyer, Christine Lepera, said. “He made her famous.”

Kesha’s fans and fellow singers in the industry have thrown their support behind the devastated star and have started an online campaign called #FreeKesha.
