Katy Perry: I Was Never Raped By Dr. Luke; Kesha and Gaga Lied

Back in 2016, Kesha alleged that she was raped by her longtime producer and mentor, Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, known professionally as Dr. Luke.

The ensuing court case became a subject of intense media scrutiny, as some of the biggest names in music found themselves embroiled in one of the most shocking industry scandals in recent history.

Katy Perry-Dr. Luke

While famous friends of Kesha’s, such as Lady Gaga, came to the singer’s support, others were surprised to find themselves caught up in the proceedings.

One such unwitting participant was Katy Perry.

Back in June, allegations that Perry had been raped by Gottwald began to spread on social media after The Blast obtained documents from the producer’s counter-suit against Kesha.

Lawyers for Gottwald alleged that Kesha “falsely asserted that Gottwald had also raped Kathryn Hudson p/k/a Katy Perry.”

In newly-released transcripts from a July 2017 deposition, Perry insists that she was never assaulted by Luke and has no idea how that rumor came about.

Asked by an attorney for Gottwald is she had ever been raped by the producer, Perry replied simply, “No.”

“Absolutely not,” she added when asked if he had “sexually assaulted her.”

Lawyers for Luke stated that the rumors began when Kesha texted Lady Gaga alleging that Gottwald had raped Perry.

They claim that Gaga then spread the false information on social media in an attempt to defame Gottwald.

“Following this text message conversation, and with [Kesha’s] encouragement, Ms. Germanotta spread negative messages about Gottwald in the press and on social media,” attorneys alleged.

“For example, in February 2016, Ms. Germanotta posted multiple articles discussing defendant defamatory statements on her Twitter page.”

Gaga previously stated that she had heard rumors about Gottwald raping Perry from Interscope Records Chief John Janick.

“I saw information about Kesha that was related to her having difficulty getting away from a record producer that had allegedly raped her,” Gaga told the court.

“Yes, and I don’t know that he used  the word ‘rumor.’ I don’t recall exactly the way he said it. I just recall that it was brought up,” she added.

”He said something like I heard he raped Katy, too.”

Luke’s legal team released a statement yesterday summarizing the case thusly:

“In 2014, Kesha filed a bogus Complaint against Dr. Luke — which she has voluntarily dismissed — falsely claiming that he drugged and raped her in 2005.

Now, after four years of litigation, it is Dr. Luke’s defamation claim that remains. Evidence is now publicly available to show that Kesha’s Complaint was filed pursuant to a ‘Press Plan’ and PR media blitz, designed to create the maximum negative public pressure on Dr. Luke in order to get him to give in to her contract demands.

Having done all of the damage publicizing her false claim of rape for years, Kesha now has asked Dr. Luke to not speak publicly about the evidence just being revealed… even though this is the first time Dr. Luke has the opportunity to do so with some of the actual facts. Ironic, indeed.”

We’ll have further information on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Kesha Accuses Dr. Luke of Raping Katy Perry

A new and very disturbing allegation has been leveled against music producer Dr. Luke.

To be more accurate, the allegation itself is not new.

But it has only just now been made public, and it has the music industry reeling in many different directions.

Allow us to explain…

The Blast has obtained legal documents that allege Kesha told Lady Gaga via text message in 2016 that Dr. Luke had raped both herself… and Katy Perry.

The first accusation listed above has been documented several times in the past.

Kesha claimed back in 2014 that Dr. Luke assaulted her and harassed her throughout their professional relationship and she has since filed a lawsuit against the infamous producer.

On May 31, however, Luke’s attorney filed papers that include the following sections:

On Feb. 26, 2016, [Kesha] sent a text message to Stefani Germanotta p/k/a Lady Gaga which repeated [Kesha’s] false claim that Gottwald had raped her.

In this text message, [Kesha] also falsely asserted that Gottwald had also raped Kathryn Hudson p/k/a Katy Perry.

Following this text message conversation, and with [Kesha’s] encouragement, Ms. Germanotta spread negative messages about Gottwald in the press and on social media.

For example, in February 2016, Ms. Germanotta posted multiple articles discussing defendant defamatory statements on her Twitter page.

To be clear, as mentioned above, it is Dr. Luke’s own attorney who included these text message excerpts in his court filing.

He is claiming that Kesha has defamed his client and is denying her accusations about both her rape and the rape of Perry by Dr. Luke.

We reported last August that Lady Gaga had agreed to submit unedited text exchanges she had with Kesha to the court in an attempt to assist Kesha with her lawsuit against Dr. Luke.

In addition to co-producing Kesha’s breakout hits “TiK ToK” and “We R Who We R,” the producer also worked on a number of Perry singles, including “I Kissed a Girl,” “Teenage Dream” and “Roar.”

There’s no debate here that he knows Perry well.

But there’s obviously a very big difference between knowing her well and assaulting her in the manner Kesha has reportedly described to her friends.

No one from Kesha, Lady Gaga or Katy Perry’s camps have commented on this story.

In a New York Times feature published a year ago, Perry simply said “I had to leave the nest” when asked why she stopped working with Dr. Luke.

Dr. Luke alleges he lost out on over $ 10 million that he would have made for working on various Perry’s albums… and thinks Kesha’s allegations damaged his reputation and led to his split from the American Idol judge.

The documents published by The Blast also reveal that Perry has been deposed as part of Kesha’s lawsuit, but they do not give details to what was said.

Luke, meanwhile, has strongly denied all allegations of assault and abuse by Kesha.

He has countersued the singer for breach of contract and defamation.

In February of 2016, Dr. Luke tweeted:

“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.”

Two years after he made this statement, Kesha stole the show at the 2018 Grammy Awards when she performed her empowerment anthem “Praying” in support of the Time’s Up movement with a choir comprised of Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels, Andra Day and Bebe Rexha.
