Gaga en­ters Ke­sha’s le­gal bog

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Ran­dall Roberts

The on­go­ing off­stage drama be­tween pop singer Ke­sha and her for­mer pro­ducer, Dr. Luke, has en­tan­gled another plat­inum su­per­star: Lady Gaga.

On Satur­day, at­tor­neys for Dr. Luke is­sued a state­ment re­gard­ing their at­tempt to de­pose Lady Gaga about rel­e­vant con­ver­sa­tions she may have had with Ke­sha.

Ke­sha is the sub­ject of a defama­tion suit filed in New York by Dr. Luke stem­ming from al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct, which the pro­ducer vig­or­ously de­nies.

“Dr. Luke’s coun­sel served a sub­poena on Lady Gaga be­cause she has rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing, among other things, false state­ments about Dr. Luke made to her by Ke­sha,” his state­ment read.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives for Gaga re­sponded to the sub­poena in a state­ment pro­vided Mon­day to The Times.

“Dr. Luke’s team is at­tempt­ing to ma­nip­u­late the truth and draw press at­ten­tion to their case by ex­ag­ger­at­ing Lady Gaga’s role and falsely ac­cus­ing her of dodg­ing rea­son­able re­quests,” it read.
