QUOTE
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.

Kesha says the alleged abuse led to her eating disorder -- a story TMZ broke earlier this year. She claims Dr. Luke said, among other things, "You are not that pretty, you are not that talented, you are just lucky to have me." As we reported, she claims he called her "a fat f***ing refrigerator."

Kesha also says there was physical abuse ... once she says he attacked her at his Malibu house where he was "violently thrashing his arms at her." She says she escaped and ran barefoot down PCH and hid in the mountains.

Kesha is asking a judge to let her out of her contract with Luke.

Kesha's lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ ... "This lawsuit is a wholehearted effort by Kesha to regain control of her music career and her personal freedom after suffering for ten years as a victim of mental manipulation, emotional abuse and an instance of sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke."

Can't quite believe it. Absolutely devastated for her if this is true.

Gah.

I felt sick to my stomach reading this tbh, for 10 goddamn years.
If this is true (and I highly doubt Kesha would lie about it) I hope he ends up in jail and paying her a massive amount of money.

But I dn't think they can prove anything so sad.gif

(Change the $ B. She is no longer known like that)

I'm gutted for her too, I admire her for being so strong about this until now as well. What a horrible man.

I hope above all she can get justice and that everything works out well for her from here on in, lord knows she deserves it.

Why would you not go to the police and seek prison time if such a terrible crime had been committed? Stop such a heinous character possibly praying on other innocent people. It seems the key thing she wants here is to get out of her contract with him. It doesn't quite add up and as always there are two sides to every story and I find it interesting this has so easily leaked out to tmz...

I can't for a second see this being made up or fabricated, but obviously the media have to stress "allegedly" until he is proven guilty.

Such a vivacious, talented and beautiful woman. Shows this sort of nightmare can happen to anyone, even the ones that are the most confident and happy on the outside.

As said, speechless.

Well i think it's easier said than done, as onlookers not knowing the situation. So many other cases like this go undetected for years too, so those in the limelight aren't immune to it or they don't have extra willpower to fight back.

Of course it's related to her career too. Just like it would be for any person that has been abused by their boss in the working world, so it shouldn't be any different for a popstar as that is her livelihood at the end of the day and how she makes her money.

I had a feeling we'd be hearing more about this story when I saw her mum on Twitter post these tweets months ago:

Kesha is a liar who is making up stories just so she can get out of her legally binding contract with Dr. Luke ... and she tried extorting him to boot ... this according to a new lawsuit.

But in Luke's lawsuit ... he says the pack of lies is being engineered by Kesha's mother, Pebe and Kesha's new management firm. Luke claims Kesha tried to extort him by threatening to spread lies about him to a blogger who started a "Free Kesha" website unless he released her from her recording contract.

And Luke's says in his lawsuit he's had a copy of a draft of Kesha's new abuse lawsuit for months, and she was threatening to file it if he didn't release her. In other words, he's alleging more extortion.

Lepera says Kesha and her mom have already admitted the statements are false.

Can I just say, what Jake says is probably likely to be true. While this may or may not be true, it definitely is JUST allegations at the moment.

The US is just so different with their lawsuits for them to be able to go to the courts. If this has been true then why no police? Why a vicious lawsuit? Just to be right now, it really does seem like an extreme way to get out of a contract.

Really? In a society where sexual assault and rape are so prevalent, where convictions are so low, where the police are notorious for not taking accusations seriously or for victim blaming, it's more than understandable that somebody wouldn't act totally rationally in going straight to the police on something like this. Not least because it involves exposing yourself to the excoriation and judgements of the media and millions of armchair commentators who take it upon themselves to decide what counts as sexual assault and what doesn't and who victim blame and $l*t shame viciously any woman who has to go through a case like this.

I'm actually a bit disappointed that this is your immediate reaction.

This is truly horrible. Feel so bad for her sad.gif Read through the entire document Tim posted and it just seems so brutal and inhumane that she was held against her will under the threat that if she had said anything her career could've also been driven into the water

i'm not suggesting she should have gone straight to the police rather it's how she is dealing with it NOW. when you feel you have the strength to go public you do it by means of suing someone (with what seems to be with the central intention of getting oneself removed from their contract) and leaking the document to tmz.

perhaps i am not clear in how the judiciary works in the states but i'm assuming there will be a judge (or three) deciding whether all these crimes occurred? what is to stop her going to the police now if this man is everything she says he is? it just doesn't add up to me. there may of course and probably is some truth to the situation but to be so high profile and set such a precedent in dealing with serious issues like this, is something i don't agree with.

This was being discussed at work and one girl said, "ugh her music is going to suck now." Sad that, that is the immediate reaction from some "fans".
