Kesha Rumored To Be Almost Free From Dr. Luke, But There’s A Catch

Colbie Caillat at The Songs of Hope X Event in LADr. Luke’s future with Sony may be coming to an end. The Wrap is reporting that the music company is planning to cut all ties with the music producer after a nasty court battle with Kesha.

“There is no contest. Kesha has no case in regards to her contract but they can’t afford the Adeles of the world out in the streets calling the label unsupportive,” a source told The Wrap. 

Since the ruling, Kesha has received tons of support from artists like Lady Gaga, Sony’s own Adele and Kelly Clarkson. Kelly claimed she was blackmailed into working with the producer.

Sony ending its working relationship with Dr. Luke is not set in stone yet because any move could be a breach of contract. “No court has convicted this person, so there may not be any legal basis to terminate an agreement. It would have to be mutual.”

Do you think public scrutiny is the main reason Sony is looking to let Dr. Luke go?

    If i was kesha I would do anything to get out of sony and this dr luke so i would never have to get back there again, i mean continuing working here even if this dude gets fired still that place would be a reminder of what happened and it’s really horrifying if it’s true. Can you imagine working at a place where you got raped?! I would want to get away and move on with my life as far away as possible from these people!

    As a corporation money is their only drive so yeah public scrutiny is probably the reason. If all the people who are working with this man are coming out and attacking him than regardless of the Kesha case they have to look into it. This is hurting them too. They have to fall into damage control. Hopefully this makes them rethink their business practices though I doubt it.

    Has anyone ever thought that she may be lying?
    She has no case.
    This has been suddenly brought to the attention to the feds, but why not when it first happened? Doesn’t matter if I had things to lose, if I was “hurt” or whatever, I would not hesitate to bring it up to someones attention as soon as I can, not “later”.
    Especially when evidence will be needed, best to go immediately to someone to be examined. It does not take a rocket scientist to know this.

    If I was traumatized like Kesha claims, I would not be going on trips, I would not be putting myself out in public.

    I feel like yeah, women empowerment is great and all but don’t make it blind you and make you stupid. Men are human too. What if your dad/brother/uncle or whoever was being falsely accused because “this happens a lot in the industry”, well if it did why aren’t these women stepping up.

    I’ve read the case, she has not supportive evidence. So its “crying wolf”..Should someone lose their career and be shamed because “A woman said she was abused so yes, shes right”. There have been many cases of men being falsely accused.

    Sony has made it clear that she wouldn’t work with him, but still be in contract with them. But what? Not enough? Was the cry wolf in need of money? hate? jealousy? If you were that upset of being violated, waiting obviously was stupid.

    I just don’t buy it. Personally. I’ll probably get hate on here for saying this.

      If you don’t know what you’re talking about maybe you should consider not talking. You know fear, humiliation, and blackmail are all things right? That abuse is psychological? That you need to prove your case without reasonable doubt which if she’s drugged there automatically is? That rape is private automatically making it his word against hers and SHE GOES BACK TO HIM IF SHE LOSES. That presents a small problem don’t you think? You just called her “cry wolf” and a liar. Yeah that’s just what every abuse victim wants the public to call them. It takes an incredible amount of bravery to come forward. You obviously don’t understand how much abusers fuck with you. It’s a game to them and they’re good at it. Its all psychology and guess what? It works. You can say “what if” until your lips fall off but the case stays the same. You’re literally saying that anyone that doesn’t pull themselves together the same week their most traumatic moment happens they’re a liar. You don’t know what you’d do because it didn’t happen to you it happened to her. It’s a little different when you’re no longer the spectator.

        You do know that this producer guy asked the judge to have her present ALL these medical claims that he “caused” (so she says) BUT she is asking the judge to refuse his lawyers proposal. If you have “evidence” to absolutely prove he’s guilty than why not show it? Makes no sense, right?
        I don’t just talk out of my ass, I do my own research and not just side with all the posts on facebook/instagram like the majority of people. If you also did your research, the reason I say shes crying wolf is because she denied he had done anything to her and now suddenly its the complete opposite. I’m pretty sure you ruin your own creditability when lying under oath. The chance & chances she has been given to make a case & shes not taking it? If all she has to do is show whatever evidence you have to get out of her contract then why not do it? The guy will be thrown in prison if she’s telling the truth so what fear will she have after that? She has all the public support, right? Then why not actually do something about it yourself instead of having people pity you. Clearly she has already made the first “brave” move to take it to court, but refuses to prove it? It baffles me. How is someone going to accuse a person and not prove it? And the accused is trying to bring to light they are innocent asking for the so called evidence, and yet shes taking the “No, take my word for it, you don’t need evidence” route. Imagine if you were accused of something you didn’t do and the whole world is shaming you AND YOU ARE ASKING “please, show the records that you say you have that I did something” and they won’t, how do you NOT think “they’re lying”. Oh and by the way, he has also asked the judge for all emails, texts, and form of communication between them to be shown in court along with the medical records BUT as mentioned before, shes begging the judge to refuse the proposal. Hmmm, WHY!? Because maybe she has nothing?

          I need to read more on this case obviously.

          Facts trump Heart/Emotions in the legal system. But the truth is a lot of artists are ruled and abused physically, mentally and emotionally by the men who own the labels they are signed to.

      You have a lot of points! :)

    They are just going to give him a fat pay check to ‘resign’ and move on to shut people up.
