Kesha drops lawsuit against Dr Luke in Califronia, continuing legal action in New York


Kesha drops lawsuit against Dr Luke in Califronia, continuing legal action in New York

Pop star Kesha has dropped sexual assault lawsuit against Dr Luke in California, but will continue with them in New York.


The 29-year-old previously asked a judge to leave Luke's Kemosabe Records, owned by Sony Music, but her request was refused in April.


Kesha has been released from her recording contract after claiming she was sexually assaulted by the producer. He denies all accusations.


While the charges have been ongoing she has not been able to release any new music as she is on his label.


Taking the dispute to a New York court in April, her lawyer says they are dropping the allegations in Los Angeles to focus her legal efforts in New York. This includes the one that prevented her form leaving Kemosabe records.


Dr Luke, 42, real name is Lukasz Gottwald, has denied Kesha's allegations that date back to 2005, not long after she signed with him.


Kesha's lawyer stated she has submitted 28 new songs to Luke's label and has a "strong desire to release her next album and single as soon as possible".


In an emotional online post on Tuesday, Kesha wrote:

“My fight continues. I need to get my music out. I have so much to say. This lawsuit is so heavy on my once free spirit, and I can only pray to one day feel that happiness again.

“I am continuing to fight for my rights in New York. Thank you for all your support. The support of my fans has been so beautiful and I’m so grateful for it. I’m Not sure where I would be without you all.”


Her last public performance was at the Billboard Music Awards in May, performing Bob Dylan's It Ain't Me, Babe.


That appearance was only allowed to go ahead after Dr Luke's label withdrew objections to her performing, fearing she would use it as a platform to attack the producer.



























Luke has sued Kesha for defamation. The case is still ongoing.
