The judge ruled in favor of Dr Luke, her music producer.
Kesha in 2014 accused Dr Luke of claiming sexual assault and battery, sexual harassment, gender violence, unfair business practices, and infliction of emotional distress..The singer accused Dr Luke of drugging and raping her a decade ago and was abusive both physically and emotionally. She went to court to get out of her contract with the producer. The contract obligates her to record six albums with him, two of which have already been released.
Kesha has not been making music for over 3 years.
But she’s allowed to sing other people’s songs. And she posted this cover of Amazing Grace before heading to court.
The hashtag #FreeKesha has been trending on Twitter. And thousands of fans gathered outside the Supereme Court for her hearing.
The judge apparently sided with Dr. Luke after hearing how the producer invested $60 million in Kesha’s career and that he allowed to make music without his involvement. The judge told Kesha and her council “that Decimates your argument. My instinct is to do the commercially reasonable thing..”
Kesha broke down in tears.
