Dr. Luke Denies He Had Sex With Kesha

Music producer Dr. Luke denies raping Kesha, while accusing the singer of lying under oath as she pursues a lawsuit against him.

The pair are currently embroiled in a high-profile legal battle, after the Tik Tok hitmaker filed a sexual assault case against him in October, 2014, claiming her one-time mentor and musical collaborator subjected her to years of sexual, physical, verbal and emotional abuse.

But Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, insists he is innocent, pleading his case on Twitter on Monday (22Feb16) – three days after Kesha lost her bid to walk away from a contract she claims ties her to the producer.

“I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister.”

Dr. Luke filed a countersuit against Kesha and her mum, Pebe Sebert, for defamation and extortion, alleging the mother-daughter duo threatened to go public with sexual assault claims unless he released her from the management contract the star, who is now 28 years old, signed with him when she was 18.

In his Twitter messages, the 42-year-old record producer shared several photos of tabloid stories, with one headline that reads ‘Kesha denied date rape by Dr. Luke in 2011 testimony, court records reveal’.

He used this article as he accused Kesha of perjury, adding, “Kesha has denied under oath the horrible allegations now being made against me.”

Dr. Luke maintained he is above reproach in this matter: “Imagine if you or somebody you loved was publicly accused of a rape you knew they didn’t do. Imagine that,” he tweeted. “I have 3 sisters, a daughter, and a son with my girlfriend, and a feminist mom who raised me right.

“Kesha and I made a lot of songs together and it was often good but there were creative differences at times.

“It’s sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue. But I feel confident when this is over the lies will be exposed and the truth will prevail.”

Meanwhile, Kesha is receiving the support of her peers after losing her contract case in court on Friday (19Feb16). Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 (£177,000) to help Kesha pay her legal fees and music producers Zedd and Jack Antonoff have offered to work with her. Demi Lovato, Lily Allen and Halsey have also offered the singer their support.
