Kesha Says She Would Be Granted "Freedom" If She Retracts Rape Claims Against Dr. Luke

“I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.”

Kesha shared earlier today via Instagram that she was offered her “freedom” (from her record label, Sony, presumably) if she issues a public apology and retracts all her rape allegations against Dr. Luke. Sharing on social media, the singer writes:

“so. I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie. I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.”

In response to this claim, Rolling Stone reported the following statement from Dr. Luke’s spokesperson:

“The Court repeatedly stated Kesha is already free to record without Dr. Luke, and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims. That’s because all the evidence – including Kesha’s own videotaped sworn testimony – show her allegations are false. The only thing Kesha is not free to do is to continue to lie about Dr. Luke through publicity stunts and outrageous smears, ignoring the fact that by her own free will she went to work and entered into new contracts with Dr. Luke years after this ‘incident’ supposedly happened. Her goal all along has been solely personal enrichment by seeking to break contracts that brought her success and millions so she can enter into more lucrative ones. We look forward to our day in court holding Kesha accountable for her lies.”

Kesha’s request for an injunction against Dr. Luke and Sony to be released from her current recording contract was denied earlier in February. The main argument for this decision was that the company’s reported $60 million loss would be too detrimental for the label. Although Kesha has returned to writing music, Dr. Luke’s ongoing crusade to bring the artist’s claims into disrepute have once again brought larger issues into the spotlight.
