Ke­sha pulls Dr Luke sex case claim

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

KE­SHA has dropped a law­suit in Cal­i­for­nia al­leg­ing that pro­ducer Dr Luke sex­u­ally and emo­tion­ally abused her, but a sim­i­lar case will re­main in New York.

The dis­missal of the Los An­ge­les case comes amid an ef­fort by the singer to get new sin­gles and an al­bum re­leased de­spite her high-pro­file fight with her for­mer men­tor.

Her lawyer said she can now fo­cus her le­gal ef­forts in New York, where she has also sued the pro­ducer al­leg­ing he ridiculed her for nearly a decade and at one point drugged and raped her.

Dr Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald, says Ke­sha is su­ing to try for a bet­ter record deal.

Ke­sha’s ca­reer has been in limbo since she first sued Dr Luke in Oc­to­ber 2014, al­leg­ing his abuse caused her to go into re­hab.

Dr Luke has never been charged with any crime and has de­nied he abused the singer.

He has pro­duced some of the big­gest hits of the past decade, with stars in­clud­ing Katy Perry, Mi­ley Cyrus, and Nicki Mi­naj. THE av­er­age per­son in the UK talks about the weather 44 times a month to 18 other peo­ple.
