No rape, sex with Kesha — producer


DR. LUKE is breaking his silence on Kesha’s rape allegation­s after the pop star failed to get out of her contract with the superprodu­cer.

“Until now, I haven’t commented on the lawsuits, which should be resolved in court not here on Twitter,” he tweeted Monday.

He claimed the allegation­s were a lie fabricated by greed, and said he was never sexually involved with the “Tik Tok” singer.

“I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister.”

The 28-year-old artist accused him of drugging and raping her when she was 18, then mentally abusing her until she broke down and was sent to rehab.

Dr. Luke, 42, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, said Kesha had initially denied under oath that he made sexual advances toward her, and posted a Daily News story from 2014 referencin­g the court documents.
