Kesha Asks Judge To Record Music Without Dr. Luke
November 10, 2015 at 4:58 PM (PT)
KESHA has filed a preliminary injunction that would allow her to record an album with someone other than producer DR. LUKE, who she claims sexually abused her, BUZZFEED reports. The move is the latest action in a year-long battle that she claims has left her career at a standstill.
SONY MUSIC doesn’t want her recording with anyone besides DR. LUKE or one of his companies while her contract dispute is pending in court. However, KESHA’s lawsuit states she faces “a grave risk of irreparable harm if she continues to be prevented from working.”
“KESHA ROSE SEBERT wants nothing more than to be able to record an album,” her court papers state. “Her only condition is that she be allowed to record with a record label that is not affiliated with someone who has emotionally and sexually abused her.”
Days after KESHA filed her lawsuit, DR. LUKE fired back, suing her for breach of contract and defamation in NEW YORK. In JULY, a CALIFORNIA judge ultimately ruled that her dispute be resolved in a NEW YORK court. A hearing is set for KESHA’s request in JANUARY.
