Ke$ha Accuses Producer Dr. Luke Of Sexual And Emotional Abuse In Lawsuit, Dr. Luke Countersues
The abuse began when she was just 18, the singer claims.
Kesha was sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abused for 10 years by her producer, Dr. Luke, to the point where she nearly died.
According to a new lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Kesha claims Dr. Luke was abusive towards her almost from the get-go -- when she signed on with him at 18 -- and made repeated sexual advances toward her. She claims he would force her to use drugs and alcohol to remove her defenses.
In one instance, Kesha claims he forced her to snort something before getting on a plane … and during the trip he forced himself on her while she was drugged.
On another occasion, Kesha claims after forcing her to drink with him, Dr. Luke gave her what he called "sober pills." Kesha claims she woke up the following afternoon, naked in Dr. Luke's bed, sore, sick … and with no memory of how she got there.
According to TMZ, Luke has responded to Kesha’s allegations with a lawsuit of his own, claiming the singer is lying and tried to extort him. TMZ reports that Luke filed suit just hours after Kesha, claiming that she and her mother made up the abuse allegations against him in an attempt to get her out of her recording contract.
