    Did Kesha Accuse Dr. Luke of Raping Katy Perry?

    Lady Gaga, Kesha and Katy Perry.jpg

    It's hard to believe that it's been four years since Kesha launched a lawsuit against her onetime producer and continued manager Dr. Luke, and that even now in 2018 the full extent of that lawsuit is only just becoming apparent. Because while Kesha's lawsuit against Luke was dropped several years ago, Luke himself was quick to launch a counter-suit against Kesha which alleged that she intentionally defamed his name to the tune of ten million dollars.

    Luke's suit is based on three alleged falsities that Kesha stated about him in various outlets. One is that he raped her, and another is that he gave her drugs against her will. But up until now the third falsity has gone unknown. With it's reveal today, Luke has made the whole suit even messier by  dragging two other A-list popstars into the suit.

    We learnt a while ago that Luke's team had asked Lady Gaga to turn over her text messages with Kesha to the court as evidence, and now we know why. According to Luke, Kesha told Gaga in a series of text messages that Luke had raped not only herself, but Katy Perry as well.

    The allegation is an interesting twist in the tale of deceit. If Luke's claim is correct - which still isn't a sure thing, as context could account for a lot in this case - then the truth of the matter between him and Kesha comes down to this very text. If she was telling the truth about Katy, it's likely that she was telling the truth about her own experience; if she was lying, her credibility is entirely wasted and there's no reason she couldn't have lied about her own abuse.

    Of course, the only person other than Luke who knows about the alleged Katy Perry abuse is Katy herself. For the record, Katy has never said anything about Luke raping her, or said anything negative about Luke at all for that matter. When it was noted that she hadn't worked with him for her Witness album, she simply stated "I had to leave the nest".

    Katy has apparently been deposed for the case, but it's so far unknown what she's said. We do at least know why Luke chose the figure of $10 million for the lawsuit, however; according to him, that's the amount that he lost out on when he wasn't able to produce Katy's albums due to the lawsuit.

    So tell us: what are your thoughts on this absolute mess?

    Maybe Dr. Luke DID rape or assault Katy, and for whatever reason she wasn't wanting to come forward. Maybe he's betting on Katy to continue to stay quiet and deny it in an effort to portray Kesha as a liar. Clearly Katy and Kesha were friends back in the day, as Kesha was in Katy's video for "I Kissed a Girl," and they've talked about being friends before they were famous while they were struggling to make it in the industry. To me, it seems perfectly logical that they could have both been around him and would have confided in each other about their shared experiences. For all we know Kesha could have even asked Katy to come forward before. Immediately trying to tear down Kesha without even hearing Katy's response seems like you're looking for a reason to believe Dr. Luke. ?

    Excuse me but it's not Dr Luke who send this SMS to Gaga, it's Kesha.

    What Kesha didn't expect, it's that Gaga speaks about that to Katy. After we don't know what's happen but i guess Katy speaks about that to Dr Luke and that's why Dr Luke asks to Gaga and Katy to go to the court.

    And even it's Dr Luke is the one who leak this, the facts are real and Kesha told lies to Gaga about Katy.

    Well, they both had known about this and Kesha wasn’t the one who told Gaga, it was a label CEO who told both of them. Girl you don’t even know the story. The bolded part is your false speculation, search about it before speaking. These were private texts and nobody told nobody about them, Luke was the one who leaked private texts between Kesha and Gaga. Gaga didn’t tell it to Katy or anyone either.

    It's not entirely unreasonable, especially when you remember that Kesha has lied under oath at one point: either about Luke raping her or not raping her. It almost seems like a long shot at this point but I do hope you're right...I can't consolidate buying someone's music and seeing them on tour with them lying about being raped and putting someone else through hell.

    They make a pretty fair point tbh. :orly:

    Quote

    "With respect to the recent story regarding Katy Perry, the statement that Dr. Luke assaulted her came from the CEO of a major record label, and was told by that executive at the same time to Kesha and Lady Gaga. The startling statement was subsequently discussed in a private, one-on-one text message between Kesha and Lady Gaga. It was neither published nor further distributed. It would have remained completely private, except that Dr. Luke and his team took an email obtained only in discovery and decided to publish it to millions of people in his amended complaint against Kesha, and then claim reputational harm from his own widespread publication."
