Lady Gaga and Katy Perry have not let em­bar­rass­ing text mes­sages cause a rift be­tween them.

Last week, Gaga re­sponded to the re­lease of his­toric texts be­tween her­self and Ke­sha, in which she called Perry “mean.”

Gaga tweeted: “@katype­rry & I have grown up in the in­dus­try to­gether. We’ve gone through both cel­e­bra­tions & dif­fer­ences w/ each other. These are old texts. We’ve ma­tured, got­ten over the past, love each other & share deep re­spect. Katy is my friend and is truly a kind soul. End of story.”

A few min­utes later, Perry replied: “Love you too friend. On­ward and up­ward.”

The text mes­sages were dis­closed as part of court doc­u­ments for the le­gal bat­tle be­tween Ke­sha and Dr Luke that started in 2014.

Ke­sha be­lieved that Dr Luke had also sex­u­ally as­saulted Katy Perry and that Perry was choos­ing not to speak about it.

“I was cry­ing a lot to­day and needed my mom. I’m re­ally upset with Katy Perry,” a text to Gaga ob­tained by Us Weekly read. “She could bring the whole thing to a head but she won’t.” “She is prob­a­bly re­ally afraid to lose ev­ery­thing,” Gaga re­sponded. “U are re­ally strong stand­ing up to him, she’s not as strong as u yet.”

“Your right. I need to ind sym­pa­thy and em­pa­thy for her. she’s so mean. it’s hard,” Ke­sha replied. Gaga: “Do u want me to see if I can talk to her. I know she’s mean. … She makes me an­gry about sh*t (but) I just try to have em­pa­thy for her.”

Ke­sha de­clined Gaga’s of­fer, say­ing, “it’s not my bat­tle.”

A spokesper­son for Gaga com­mented: “These text mes­sages paint a pic­ture of one friend try­ing to help an­other through an ex­tra­or­di­nary di­fi­cult time. They are sev­eral years old and in no way relect Lady Gaga’s re­la­tion­ship with Katy Perry.

“These are pri­vate texts that — along with per­sonal in­for­ma­tion from other high-proile in­di­vid­u­als — have been pub­licly iled to gen­er­ate me­dia at­ten­tion for this case.”
