Kesha may be returning to music, but Dr. Luke isn’t done with her in the courtroom just yet. As part of his ongoing defamation case against the singer who accused him of sexual misconduct and abuse, Dr. Luke is trying to subpoena Lady Gaga for an intensive, three-hour deposition. Dr. Luke wants his lawyers to have a chance to grill Gaga after she responded to his request for her transcripts of text messages with Kesha by giving him heavily redacted version.
“Dr. Luke’s counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha,” Dr. Luke’s legal team said Saturday. “This motion has become necessary because Dr. Luke’s counsel has not been able to obtain, despite repeated request, a deposition date from Lady Gaga.”
Apparently, Gaga’s been ducking Dr. Luke and his lawyers about the deposition, and they’ve had enough. They want the judge in the case to mandate that Gaga show up for the questioning regarding her relationship with Kesha through the scandal. But Gaga claims to see right through the legal tactic from Dr. Luke.
