Finally some good news for the singer.
Dr. Luke’s lawsuit against Kesha’s mom Pebe Sebert has been dismissed in court.
For those unaware, last year Kesha filed a lawsuit against the mega-producer claiming her longtime manager had sexually abused her since signing her onto his record label in 2005.
At the time, her lawyer said the lawsuit is a “wholehearted effort to regain control of her music career and her personal freedom after suffering for ten years as a victim of mental manipulation, emotional abuse and an instance of sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke.” He then responded with a counter lawsuit, denying the abuse allegations, and claimed that both Kesha and her mother Pebe Sebert had pursued their lawsuit to “extort Dr. Luke into releasing Kesha from her exclusive recording agreement with [him].”
Dr. Luke also filed suit against Sebert who he claimed orchestrated a smear campaign of sexual lies against him and extorted him, according to TMZ. Just yesterday, Sebert accused the producer of blackmail, saying that he was attempting to remove her from the writing credits of her and Pitbull’s massive hit single “Timber.”
However, she has since revealed that a judge has dismissed his counter lawsuit in court today.

This is a huge step of progression for Kesha’s freedom, which has already been sacrificed for way too long.
Until a judge make a ruling on Kesha’s lawsuit she cannot record or release new music, threatening her power and relevance in the music industry.
Her next hearing takes place on February 19, after being postponed last month, so let’s hope this comes to an end before it gets any worse. God knows pop music needs her back, and she’ll be even better working on her own terms and with her happiness intact.
Retweet the tweet below and lets get more people talking about Kesha’s freedom.
