Kesha's Amended Lawsuit Rejected in Case Against Dr. Luke

Adjust Comment Print

We reported last year that the 30-year-old singer made a decision to drop her sexual assault case against Dr.Luke so that she can focus on making music. She also struck down Kesha's attempt to invoke California's "seven-year" rule - which states that a court can't enforce a personal service contract after seven calendar years from when the deal began - because her contracts were subject to NY law.

Kesha lost another round of legal actions against music producer Dr. Luke.

"They were like, "Oh, my gosh, you're free", and I was like, "No, sweetheart, I love you, but no, I am not, and I don't know where you got that information", she said, remembering a conversation she had with a fan".

The latest development in Kesha's ongoing legal battle with Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald is no more promising for her than any of the previous rulings. The same opportunity - to be liberated from the physical, emotional, and financial bondage of a destructive relationship - should be available to a recording artist, " Kesha said in her proposed countersuit in January, according to court documents obtained by E!

This time, she attempted to amend her countersuit against the producer, trying two new tactics to argue her case.

Her week got off to a tough start, after a NY judge once again dismissed her attempt to free herself from a recording contract with Dr. Luke and Sony. She sought the injunction to allow her to end her contract with Dr. Luke and Kemosabe and find either a new producer with Sony or to leave the label altogether.

Somehow, the judge also suggested that Kesha should have been aware that working with Dr. Luke would result in the kind of abuse she's alleging. "Thus, Kesha may not assert a counterclaim for breach" of law.

The "abuse" named in Kesha's argument was actually breach of contract due to failure to pay her royalties.

Kesha is yet to speak up on this new devastating development.

'Kesha asks for something far more basic: the freedom to make music without being bound indefinitely to the very producer who subjected her to years of abuse and continues that abuse to this day, ' her lawyers wrote, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
