The legal feud between KESHA and DR. LUKE continues. When Kesha went to rehab in January for an eating disorder, her people say she revealed to doctors about how Dr. Luke drugged her, sexually abused her and physically assaulted her. They say the doctors told her she needed to stay as far away from him as possible and one suggested she might die if she didn't heed their warning. They also say the doctors kept notes that will become evidence in her lawsuit. However, Dr. Luke's rep fired back that just because she told that to doctors doesn't mean it's true. They also point out other bizarre statements and actions by Kesha over the years, including Kesha's claim her vagina is 'haunted' and drinking her own urine on her reality show. Luke also supposedly has an e-mail from Kesha's mother threatening to go public with the allegations unless he releases her from his contract and gives all of her publishing rights back.

California's record-setting drought is expected to intensify in Northern California, while Southern California is forecast to have a wetter than average winter, as is most of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Florida. The interior Northwest and the Great Lakes should be drier than normal, while New England and Alaska are also forecast to be warmer than average. However, The Weather Channel and AccuWeather beg to differ somewhat as they say cold and snow will seize the Northeast, especially in January and February.
