Dr. Luke Has Been Dropped By Sony!

Dr. Luke Has Been Dropped By Sony!

Several different news outlets are reporting that producer/songwriter DR. LUKE (LUKASZ GOTTWALD) is out at SONY MUSIC's KEMOSABE RECORDS label after a years-long dispute with KESHA in which the singer accused him of sexual assault.

Dr. Luke in response sued Kesha for defamation for the allegations of sexual abuse. But Dr. Luke's representatives have previously denied reports of an imminent split.

Although this may be seen in some respects as a victory for the "Free Kesha" movement, there are two potential problems for Kesha. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Luke is no longer the CEO of Kemosabe Records, and a page "devoted to Dr. Luke" on Sony Music's website has been removed.

Dr. Luke's relationship with Sony is over. "This is wrong, they are not cutting ties", the rep said without going into specifics as to what the relationship may entail. She claimed Dr. Luke forced her to take a date-rape drug and then took advantage of her in a hotel room.

Within hours of Kesha's filing, TMZ reported that Dr. Luke filed his own lawsuit for defamation and extortion. He also claimed that she threatened to release damaging information about the producer to a pro-Kesha blogger. Kesha has accused him of many bad things including rape, all of which he has denied. Surely that could only mean good things for Kesha, right?

In the suit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the singer alleged that years of abuse resulted in an eating disorder and a stint in rehab that sidelined her once white-hot career. Most recently she has appealed against a decision not to impose a law regarding the limit of seven years on personal services contract in the entertainment industry.

The clarification was made in a written request of the NY supreme court by Sony's legal team to dismiss a counterclaim by Kesha against the imprint as "misplaced".

This was the third pending appeal in the Kesha-Luke dispute before a NY appeals court.

However, a judge denied this request from Kesha in March.

In June 2015, a judge put Kesha's California case on hold after ruling that the NY case took precedent. Dr. Luke will have more hits. Are you excited for her new album?
