The latest news in the Kesha and Dr Luke case is that she has been offered ‘freedom’ in exchange for retracting the lawsuit.
In a recent Instagram post, Kesha says ”I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie. I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped.”
”THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.”
It seems as though she isn’t backing down from the battle and is prepared to fight it all the way. She is even willing to let her career go down the drain until the ‘truth’ is uncovered.
But there is wide-spread skepticism on both sides. Many are on the fence and are finding it hard to believe what the ‘truth’ actually is. Throughout the case, Dr. Luke has flatly denied raping Kesha, or even having any sexual contact. The producer alleges that that Kesha manufactured lies to get out of her recording contract with Sony Music Entertainment.
For its part, Sony has offered a workaround, without offering a contract release. Manhattan Supreme Court judge Shirley Kornreich also denied a preliminary injunction put forward by Kesha that would have allowed her to escape the contract with the label, on the basis that she refused the offer of working with other producers.
The denial of the injunction sparked intensified efforts by Kesha and her lawyers. An appeal is reportedly underway.
The case continues…
