Kesha: Dr. Luke Forced Me To Lie Under Oath

Kesha says Dr. Luke threatened to ruin her career if she didn’t lie for him.

Dr. Luke recently posted a series of Tweets defending his case he did not rape or ever have sex with Kesha. He used a transcript from Kesha’s 2011 deposition from a separate suit by a manager where she denies ever having sex with Luke or getting roofed. It’s key evidence in Luke’s defense.



A source connected to the defamed producer sent TMZ video of Kesha’s 2011 deposition where she appears calm and relaxed as she answers the questions. It also includes bits of her mom Pebe Sebert commenting on the claims, denying any allegations of sexual abuse on her daughter from Luke.

Kesha: I Am Beyond Words In Gratitude

Kesha’s lawyers have responded, claiming Luke threatened beforehand if she admitted he laid a hand on her, he’d thrash her career. Kesha’s complaint filed in October 2014 read:

Dr. Luke repeatedly threatened that if she ever told anyone about these abusive incidents, he would destroy both Ms. Sebert and her entire family. Specifically, after he drugged and raped Ms. Sebert, Dr. Luke took her down to the beach alone to “have a talk” with her. He threatened that if she ever mentioned the rape to anyone, he would shut her career down, take away all her publishing and recording rights, and otherwise destroy not only her life but her entire family’s lives as well. He also threatened her and her family’s physical safety. Ms. Sebert wholly believed that Dr. Luke had the power and money to carry out his threats; she therefore never dared talk about, let alone report, what Dr. Luke had done to her.

Kesha’s lawyer Mark Geragos issued a statement upon the above’s declaration’s mysterious leak onto the Internet:

“Luke’s latest legal maneuver comes as no surprise; it’s a desperate Hail Mary and a pathetic attempt to once again blame his victim. He threatened to destroy Kesha’s life and the lives of her family if she didn’t cover up his sexual assaults in a 2011 deposition; Luke is now following through on his threats. Unfortunately protecting abusers out of fear happens all too often with battered women. This case is about Luke’s physical, emotional and psychological abuse of Kesha and her fight to get him out of her life. After being driven to the brink of death and into rehab, she’s no longer going to allow herself to wither away at the hands of her abuser as he tries to blame the victim.”

Geragos is defending his client’s mistake for lying under oath, saying “if she didn’t cover up his sexual assault,” he’d threaten her physical safety.

“He’s pathetic vermin,” Geragos added. “This guy is nothing more than his generation’s Bill Cosby. Interestingly, they both impersonate doctors.”
