During an emotional anti-cyberbullying conversation with Refinery29’s Amy Emmerich Tuesday afternoon at Austin’s South by Southwest conference, embattled pop star Kesha broke down while discussing the eating disorder and body dysmorphia issues that landed her in rehab in 2014 and seriously jeopardized her life. Ironically, even though Kesha was suffering physically as well as emotionally at the time, she says she received nothing but praise from music industry insiders regarding her dramatic weight loss. Speaking to her many adoring fans, or “Animals,” in a 1,500-capacity Austin Convention Center ballroom, Kesha said, “I just want people to know that they’re not alone.
The legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke has entangled one of her most vocal supporters. Court documents obtained by Pitchfork show that Dr. Luke’s lawyers have taken steps to subpoena Michael Eisele, a fan and “#FreeKesha” protest organizer, for allegedly "closely coordinating" with Kesha's camp to spread "defamatory statements and tarnish [Dr. Luke]’s reputation." Dr. Luke (Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald) and Kesha (Kesha Rose Sebert) have been fighting in New York court since 2014, when the producer sued the singer for defamation and she countersued based on her assertions of rape and other abuse.
Kesha released a series of emails between producer Dr. Luke and her manager, including alleged exchanges concerning the singer's weight.
Kesha’s counterclaim, obtained by EW, goes on to say that though Kesha has been recording music, “not one song has been approved, no release date has been set, and there has been no agreement on the critical issue of whether the album will be promoted commensurate with an artist of Kesha’s stature and historical success.” It also alleges that it wasn’t until this past December that Luke “released certain funds owed to Kesha” after her legal team “threatened further legal action” and that he still owes her money. “To be clear, Kesha does not seek the renegotiation of contractual terms,” the suit reads.
Kesha broke down in tears while talking to Viceland about her music career. In the interview with the music show Noisey, the 29-year-old singer opened up about her ongoing legal battles. In 2014, Kesha sued her longtime producer, Dr. Luke, for alleged sexual and emotional abuse.
Kesha and her backing band the Creepies wrapped up their independent tour this past Saturday, with a relatively low-key, late-afternoon, 40-minute slot at Los Angeles’s Mad Decent Block Party (a touring festival masterminded by EDM guru Diplo’s record label). Last Thursday, Kesha took to Instagram to defend former Miss Universe Alicia Machado (who was fat-shamed by Trump in the late ‘90s), writing: “I want to give my support and respect to you, Alicia.
On Feb. 19, Kesha Rose Sebert sat in Manhattan’s New York State Supreme Court building, tears streaming down her cheeks. Judge Shirley Werner Kornreich had just denied a preliminary injunction that would have allowed Kesha to record music outside her six-album contract with producer Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, better-known as Dr. Luke – and, according to a lawsuit she brought against him in October 2014, her alleged rapist. It also claimed that Luke controlled and psychologically abused the singer from the time she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her career in 2005 through her breakthrough in 2010 and beyond.
