Seems like Kesha can’t get out of her contract, but her abuser can?
Sony Music is expected to end its working relationship with controversial producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald a year ahead of his contract’s expiration, TheWrap reports. While Dr. Luke’s people are deny deny denying this is true, I’m not sure what to believe.
A legal representative for Gottwald issued this statement:
“This is not true. Luke has an excellent relationship with Sony. His representatives are in regular contact with executives at the highest levels at Sony and this has never come up.”
Since Kesha’s sexual abuse allegations against Gottwald have resulted in a nasty court battle people like Adele, Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson have had Kesha’s back, which I guess intimidated Sony into doing SOMETHING, though Sony’s been famously mum on the matter.
We’re pretty sure Dr. Luke is getting fired, but nothing official yet.
