“I don’t know what hap­pened,” she said of Ke­sha’s claims that he was sex­u­ally and ver­bally abu­sive. “But I know that, re­gard­less of whether or not Dr. Luke did that, this is his karma and he earned it be­cause he’s not a good per­son.”

“I have told him that to his face, and I do not work with him,” she added. “He doesn’t do good busi­ness, he’s not a kind per­son, he doesn’t do the right thing, and I don’t re­ally feel that bad for him.”

You wouldn’t mind if some­one walked up to Wil­low at the mall and grabbed her?” (She added Trump’s in­fa­mous vul­gar­ity.)
