Dr. Luke is seeking $50 million in damages from Kesha because he alleges the sexual assault lawsuit caused him to lose out on making money.

 

 

Well don’t be a piece of s–t then.

According to a new report from The Blast, Dr. Luke wants Kesha to fork over $50 million because he believes their ongoing legal scandal inspired music makers to look elsewhere for work.

Namely, Katy Perry. He believes in light of the controversy, the pop star decided to collaborate with other producers, forcing him to lose out on a huge chunk of change. Potentially, of course.

 

 



The site says Luke broke down what he feels he *would* have made over a 10-year period had Kesha not accused him of sexual assault. “He said he would have made $29.9 million in producer and publishing royalties, $8.7 million from co-writing tracks with songwriters on his label, and $10.2 million for work that would have been done on Katy Perry’s 4th, 5th and 6th albums.” These figures were created based on his past hits.

It’s worth mentioning Kesha’s legal team responded by doubting Luke’s claims. They’re not convinced he could secure top performers like he had back in his prime.

This is just desperate. Is he not exhausted?

UPDATE: Representatives for Dr. Luke (via his legal team) emailed us the following statement:

“Kesha’s false accusations have caused tremendous damage to Dr. Luke, his family and his businesses.  Kesha’s recent court filing misstates and misrepresents an expert accountant’s calculations of certain revenue that Mr. Gottwald has lost as a result of Kesha’s false accusations.  The ultimate amount of Dr. Luke’s damages is for a jury to decide.”
