Though Kesha has lastly began producing new music once more—along with her first album in years, Rainbow, due out August 11—that doesn’t imply the continuing authorized struggle between her and Dr. Luke, the producer she has repeatedly stated sexually assaulted her, has ended. Luke (whose actual title is Lukasz Gottwald) remains to be suing Kesha for defamation, and he’s now pulling different big-name music celebrities into the struggle. Particularly, Girl Gaga, who’s been subpoenaed in the present day to testify within the swimsuit.
Gaga’s really been concerned with the case for a bit, having already been compelled to supply a written assertion on feedback Kesha might have made to her about Gottwald. However that assertion “redacted an excessive amount of of the content material to show helpful,” so she’s now been ordered in for a three-hour interview. (She won’t be the final, both; Gottwald’s legal professionals have stated they’re calling in quite a few third-parties, together with “celebrities,” to testify.)
Girl Gaga has been a long-time supporter of Kesha, all through her authorized battles with Gottwald. In 2014, she revealed that she’d additionally been raped by a producer when she was a younger artist. (That being stated, when one in all Kesha’s attorneys tried to recommend that the producer in that incident may also have been Gottwald, a rep for Gaga smacked the thought down.)
