Kesha is claiming that she told her doctors about the sexual abuse she suffered in the hands of her manager Dr Luke … and now the doctors’ records will be entered as evidence in court.
As ENTmania! previously reported, Kesha filed a lawsuit against Luke alleging that he physically and sexually abused her during their 10-year working relationship. But Dr Luke fired back with his own counter-suit, alleging that she and her mother Pebe Sebert are trying to extort him by fabricating the allegations in order to break free from her legally binding contract.
But to prove that she did not fabricate anything, TMZ reports that Kesha ‘spontaneously’ told her doctors about the sexual abuse during her time in rehab for an eating disorder this year. She also said that the doctors warned her to stay away from Luke for her own safety … and the only reason why she did not tell cops about it is that she was suffering from Stockholm Syndrome-like perspective (as in, she no longer had ‘free will’ because she had been working with him for a long time).
In response to the new claims, Dr Luke’s camp dismissed it as ‘preposterous’ with a rep telling the outlet, ‘Just because someone says something to a doctor doesn’t mean they weren’t fabricated or part of an overall pre-planned campaign. Her statements are false.’
‘It is important to note that these are just the latest in a series of bizarre public statements and actions by Kesha and her mother over the years, including Kesha’s claim her vagina is ‘haunted,’ her drinking her own urine on her reality show, and her mother dressing up as a penis on the television show,’ the rep added.
In a related development, TMZ also obtained an email Pebe supposedly sent to Dr Luke last year, where she accused him of screwing her out of the music publishing rights connected to her daughter – and threatened to publicly accuse him of sexual abuse if he does not ‘release Kesha from all legal contracts.’
Part of the email reads:
We, me and Kesha and her friends, like Lady Gaga, are going to make all of this Really PUBLIC, in the next few days.
Luke date raped Kesha when she was 18. Nicky Hilton’s birthday? Paris Hilton’s house? Luke gave Kesha pills. She ended up naked in his hotel room 2 days later. No longer a virgin?
Do we all want this to come out? Either Luke releases Kesha from all legal contracts, and gives me back all my publishing, or we, Kesha and I, tell the truth. And if I wind up dead, TRUST ME, IT’S IN WRITING TO CALL YOU AND LUKE.
Luke had earlier said in his counter-suit that Kesha and her mom had already admitted that they lied about the allegations in the email, but Kesha’s lawyer Mark Geragos responded by saying, ‘It is telling that Dr. Luke would twist an email from a horrified and justifiably angry mother threatening to tell the truth — the truth! — about the predator that sexually assaulted her daughter. It is offensive — but not surprising — that Dr. Luke would try and pervert the words of a concerned mother to try and keep Kesha under his unilateral control against her will.’
