Something else has surfaced in the continuing patriarchal horror show that is the Dr. Luke/Kesha case….TMZ has obtained portions of a Kesha deposition taken in 2011, and she denies under oath that she was drugged and raped.
The background is: Kesha and Luke had both been sued by a manager, and she was asked under oath about comments her mom allegedly made against Luke. She seems very relaxed in the video, and flatly denying what she is now fighting the repercussions of.
The video surfaced via a Luke source who is using it against her in this case. It also includes some footage of Kesha’s mom, who denies being told about any gross conduct between Dr. Luke and her kid.
Now, obviously this doesn’t take into account all the pressure Kesha must have been under, and how five years later she’s probably had some clarity and more strength around the situation. MANY people deny abuse for one reason or another, but hardly anyone makes up abuse claims. Kesha is trying to get out of her contract with Sony, and I think they should let her out.
What do YOU think about this traumatic case?
