We all heard about what happened to dear Kesha in her lawsuit; her injunction that would have allowed to record music with labels other than her label ie. Sony Music, was denied last Friday by New York JudgeJustice Shirley Kornreich. Since then we have seen artists publically and otherwise supporting her; high profile pop stars like Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, and Kelly Clarkson have tweeted their support to Kesha. Lorde, Grimes and Lily Allen too voiced for the pop star, while Taylor Swift silently showed her support by agreeing to donate $250,000 to Kesha’s legal fund. Much recently British singer, Adele took a ‘moment to publicly support Kesha’ at the 2016 Brit Awards on Wednesday.

While Kesha has a huge list of celeb artists in this battle, I’m surprised at how little we got to hear Dr Luke’s part on this front. He’s accused of “sexually, physically, verbally, and emotionally abused Ms.Sebert(Kesha) to the point where Ms.Sebert nearly lost her life”, he must have something to say on this.
Here’s Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald aka Dr. Luke’s part of the story:
Dr. Luke signed a five-year contract with Sony, launching his imprint Kemosabe Records and mandating that Luke produce exclusively for Sony artists in 2011. In October 2014, he was accused of drugging, raping and verbally and emotionally abusing Kesha in a sexual abuse lawsuit, after which he countersued Kesha for defamation and breach of contract and claimed that these accusations are “false and shocking”. Music producer and American guitarist responded to the allegations on twitter saying, “I understand why people without all the information are speaking out. I can appreciate their compassion.”
He added later: “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.”
Imagine if you or somebody you loved was publicly accused of a rape you knew they didn't do. Imagine that.

Now with fans going on streets with ‘Free Kesha’ boards while court ruled against her AND no proofs, we leave it to you, Dear Readers, to decide who’s telling the truth.
