Kesha filed a lawsuit in 2014 against Dr. Luke (Lukasz Gottwald),whom she alleges sexually, physically and emotionally abused her for the past 10 years. The legal battle is still ongoing and Kesha’s fans are sticking by her.
Kesha states that the sexual abuse started when she was 18 but she is under contract to work with Dr. Luke. She recently filed new court papers asking the courts to grant her permission to work with other producers. Her lawyers stated “Kesha now faces an abysmal decision: Work with her alleged abuser… or idly and passively wait as her career tick-tocks away.”
Kesha’s fans have started a petition aimed at Sony CEO Doug Morris, but there’s more to it. They have also promised to protest outside the courthouse on the day of Kesha’s trial in January, the petition already has over 81,000 supporters. Sony has the power to cancel her contract and release her. Until that happens #FreeKesha is trending on Social Media in support of the artist.
