Dr. Luke Goes on Twitter Rant Denying Kesha Rape Allegations

KeshaMusic producer Dr. Luke took to Twitter on Monday, going on a lengthy address regarding the civil suit brought by recording artist Kesha that alleges he sexually abused her over the course of several years. The suit, which seeks an injunction to release Kesha from her contract as well as monetary damages, would allow her to continue her recording career without him.

Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, began by stating that the matter “should be resolved in court not here on Twitter.” He then posted an additional 20 tweets about it, saying he never had sex with the singer, claiming that people don’t know the truth, and tweeting excerpts from articles saying that Kesha stated at a deposition in 2011 that Gottwald never touched her. Kesha claims that she lied under oath after Gottwald threatened her with violence, according to CNN.

Gottwald then took the offensive, saying that he and Kesha had creative differences, the lawsuit was the result of contract negotiations, and that her supporters don’t understand that Kesha is just after money.

After over half an hour of steady posts, he finally concluded by saying that he won’t be commenting on the case much, since it’s an ongoing matter that should be kept in the courtroom.
