A single text message has been at the center of the huge Kesha versus Dr. Luke scandal and it has apparently involved both fellow pop stars Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. Kasha has accused the producer of sexual abuse and it seems that now, the content of that text message has been revealed. According to the court documents which Dr. Luke filed refuting Kesha’s accusations also claim that the singer also accused the producer of raping Katy Perry.
It seems that Kesha texted Lady Gaga and told her this back in February 2016. She also told Lady Gaga that Dr. Luke raped her too, in the same text message. The filing then says that following this text message, Lady Gaga also began spreading negative messages about the producer all over social media and in the press, with Kesha’s encouragement. It’s interesting that before the contents of the message were revealed, it was only known that the text contained a reference to another big artist that Dr. Luke allegedly raped. Kesha herself submitted the text to the judge who kept it sealed.
The contents of the text that Kesha sent to Lady Gaga, revealed
In July last year, Dr. Luke asked Gaga to turn over the texts and testify in this case, which she did. It seems that the same thing happened to Katy Perry, but her testimony is still undisclosed. The producer also denied ever giving Kesha drugs without her consent and raping her.
It’s interesting that according to Dr. Luke’s legal team, Katy Perry confirmed that he never raped her. They called Kesha’s accusations “irresponsible and baseless” and disrespectful for both Katy Perry and Dr. Luke. In his defamation suit, the music producer seeks damages for all the harm that these false and absurd accusations have caused him.
