Celebrities Rally Around Kesha as Dr. Luke Denies Rape Allegations: 'She Was Like My Little Sister'
The music producer complains he's been subjected to a "trial by Twitter."
The music producer that pop star Kesha claims raped her is breaking his silence.
In a lengthy series of tweets, Dr. Luke said:
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.— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
I have 3 sisters, a daughter, and a son with my girlfriend, and a feminist mom who raised me right.— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
Kesha and I made a lot of songs together and it was often good but there were creative differences at times.— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
It’s sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue.— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
But I feel confident when this is over the lies will be exposed and the truth will prevail..— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
Kesha has been getting big name support including Taylor Swift who donated $250,000 to help the singer with her legal bills.
After Swift’s donation was revealed, Lovato tweeted:
Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) February 22, 2016
Lovato took the “Bad Blood" singer to task on a Swift fan site where she wrote: “At least I'm talking about it. Not everyone has 250k to just give to people. Would love to but I didn't grow up with money and def haven't made as much as her. At least I speak up about sh** that's uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7."
But Lovato says there's "no rivalry" between the two. The "Skyscraper" singer also posted:
As for Dr. Luke, he's refusing to get involved in a "trial by Twitter" after some of music's biggest names have come out in support of the 28-year-old singer.
Writing on the website Lenny Letter, Lena Dunham penned an essay called “Why Kesha’s Case is About More Than Kesha,” the actress said: “When I saw the outcome of Kesha’s court case last Friday, I felt sick.”
Lady Gaga tweeted:
There are people all over the world who love you @KeshaRose. And I can say truly I am in awe of your bravery.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 19, 2016
Miley Cyrus posted on Instagram:
It's a rich display of girl power at a time when one embattled pop star could use it.
