The Kesha-Dr-Luke saga is far from being over, last time I heard about it, Kesha was claiming that Sony was keeping her under slavery because she was still under contract with Dr. Luke, the producer who allegedly abused her, whereas Dr Luke was claiming she was free…
On Sunday, Kesha wrote something disturbing on her Instagram account, saying she was offered her freedom (so I guess she was offered to get out of her contract with Dr. Luke) in exchange of public apologies to Dr, Luke:
‘so. I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie. I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.’
Rolling Stone confirms that the option toward terminating her contract was given to the singer a few months ago, but the conditions are unclear.
A spokesperson for Dr. Luke made a statement to Rolling Stone, in response to Kesha’s Instagram post:
‘The Court repeatedly stated Kesha is already free to record without Dr. Luke, and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims. That’s because all the evidence – including Kesha’s own videotaped sworn testimony – show her allegations are false. The only thing Kesha is not free to do is to continue to lie about Dr. Luke through publicity stunts and outrageous smears, ignoring the fact that by her own free will she went to work and entered into new contracts with Dr. Luke years after this ‘incident’ supposedly happened. Her goal all along has been solely personal enrichment by seeking to break contracts that brought her success and millions so she can enter into more lucrative ones. We look forward to our day in court holding Kesha accountable for her lies.’
Who should we believe? The thousands of comments on her Instagram are very supportive, whereas the comments elsewhere are very aggressive… is Kesha a victim or is she the pop singer bimbo who is trying to get some cash? After all she started her career with a $ sign in the middle of her name!
The problem is that she was filmed denying under oath that Dr. Luke raped her, but she also said Dr. Luke threatened to destroy her career if she told the truth… so she was fine with lying at the time, and now she says she would not lie to gain her freedom? Everything is possible but this story is so convoluted it’s impossible to know the truth.
Kesha’s post was accompanied by a very vulnerable close-up of her, make-up free, her cheek laying on her arm, it’s a very different view of the colorful Kesha we all were used to, and I don’t think it was innocent, she looks very young and she is looking for your compassion and pity.
On the other hand, The Wrap pretends that Sony wants to end its working relationship with Luke a year ahead of his contract’s expiration… a rumor also denied by Luke’s representative as expected. Will we ever know who is lying? Will Kesha ever make new music? Because at the end this is all we want to know!
