Kesha has been fighting with producer Dr. Luke in court for years. Seriously, our former colleague Ally Sabatina wrote “Let’s hope today is the beginning of the end of Kesha’s horrendous year and a half legal battle,” in February 2016. And oh boy was it not.
And today, nearly four years later, Kesha had a pretty big legal setback, as reported by E!.
According to court documents obtained by E! News, her countersuit against Dr. Luke was denied on the court’s assertion that the appeal was “palpably insufficient and devoid of merit.” Furthermore, the court ruled the singer’s counterclaims were partly “speculative, contradicted by her own allegations that she had continued performing under the agreements.”
Basically what happened here is that she sued Dr. Luke for sexual assault, he countersued her defamation and while she dropped her case against him, he didn’t drop his case against her.
And she’s losing the legal battle. This is the third countersuit she’s had thrown out. Dr. Luke seems pretty dead-set on destroying her. And I just don’t think this is going to end well for her. Maybe Katy Perry is right here and Kesha is full of it, or maybe Dr. Luke is the monster Kesha makes him out to be, but either way it looks like everything is going his way.
