Kesha Drops Lawsuit Against Dr. Luke, Posts Emotional Message To Fans Regarding The Decision
Kesha's ongoing lawsuit against Dr. Luke in California came to a close today.
According to a statement from her lawyer Daniel Petrocelli to Rolling Stone, "Kesha has dismissed her California action without prejudice while she pursues her appeal and other legal claims in the New York courts."
The legal battle surrounded her contract with Sony, which she appealed to terminate due to being forced to continue work with the producer who allegedly sexually assaulted her.
Petrocelli added, "Kesha is focused on getting back to work and has delivered 28 new songs to the record label. We have conveyed to Sony and the label Kesha's strong desire to release her next album and single as soon as possible."
Dr. Luke's lawyer Christine Lepara responded to the dismissal with this statement: "If Kesha is voluntarily dismissing her claims in the California case, it is because she has no chance of winning them...Kesha never should have brought her false and meritless claims against Dr. Luke in any court."
However Kesha is DONE with negativity and took to Instagram to inform her fans that the fight will continue in New York courts and to thank them for their support:
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.
