The Kesha vs. Dr. Luke case has taken another turn…
The case started with Kesha filing a lawsuit against the producer, accusing him of raping her.
Kesha’s mother Pebe Sebert was very vocal about Dr. Luke’s “negative influence” on Kesha last year. A lawsuit wasn’t filed until a few months ago, after Kesha told doctors in rehab that his abuse had driven her there. Buzzfeed also found letters written by Kesha nine months earlier that describe the alleged abuse.
Dr. Luke responded to Kesha’s lawsuit by suing Kesha and her mother for defamation.
Now, Pebe Sebert has sued the producer for emotional stress and PTSD, reports TMZ.
Sebert says Dr. Luke’s abuse of her daughter made her to have a breakdown and made her blood pressure hit 265/180.
Sebert also claims that Dr. Luke bragged about getting girls drunk on first dates so he could “f*** them in the ass”. She also says that he dealt drugs while he played guitar on SNL, a job he held for 10 years. She says this is why people called him “Dr”.
Lady Gaga recently said a producer in the industy raped her when she was younger. Kesha’s lawyer, Mark Gergaros, claims it was Dr. Luke that raped Gaga. Reps for Dr. Luke and Lady Gaga say it wasn’t him, but Gergaros claims to have evidence. He plans to depose Lady Gaga and three other women who have made allegations against the producer.
