As the likes of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande show their support using #FreeKesha on Twitter, the lawsuit between Dr. Luke and Kesha continues - as the music manager takes to Twitter to defend himself and slam claims he ever had sexual relations with her.
Following Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Shirley Korenreich's ruling that Kesha must remain under contract with Sony Music and her alleged sexual abuser Dr. Luke - real name Luckas Gottwald, the manager has taken to twitter to deny allegations he abused the singer.
"Until now I haven't commented on the lawsuits, which should be resolved in court not here on Twitter. It's a shame that there's so much speculation out there basing itself on so little information. The only truly objective person who knows the facts is the judge. The judge did not rule in Kesha's favor on Friday I understand why people without all the information are speaking out. I can appreciate their compassion. But lives can get ruined when there's a rush to judgment before all the facts come out. Look what happened at UVA, Duke etc. of course any sane person is against rape and sexual assault but everybody who is commenting is doing so without knowledge or facts. They are getting behind an allegation only - motivated by money. I didn't rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister. Kesha has denied under oath the horrible allegations now being made against me. Here is the testimony. Kesha's lawyer Mark Geragos made another false rape claim against me that was denied by publiscly Lady GagaMark Geragos (kesha's attorney) represented Scott Peterson and Chris Brown. How can he pretend he cares about women's rights? Imagine if you or somebody you loved was publicly accused of a rape you knew they didn't do. Imagine that.I have 3 sisters, a daughter, and a son with my girlfriend, and a feminist mom who raised me right. Kesha and I made a lot of songs together and it was often good but there were creative differences at times. It's sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue. But I feel confident when this is over the lies will be exposed and the truth will prevail.. I want to thank all my friends and family who have supported me throughout this. This is an ongoing legal case so I won't be responding / talking much about this. This should be tried in a court of law."
All this comes as Kesha fans aim to make a damning comment made by the male producer back in 2010 go viral, Taylor Swift donates $250k to the cause and Demi Lovato discusses how we must 'start a dialogue' on her Instagram.
