Kesha Prepares for Court Hearing in Dr. Luke Lawsuit: 'I Have Nothing Left to Hide'

Kesha is ready to face the music.
The day before her Friday court hearing in her ongoing lawsuit against longtime producer Dr. Luke, the singer tweeted that she had “nothing left to hide.”
“I did this because the truth was eating away my soul and killing me from the inside,” she wrote, adding: “This is not just for me. this is for every woman, every human who has ever been abused.”
The lengthy caption accompanied a picture of the sun shining across a beach and the star summed up that she had “zero control” left in her fate.
In 2014, the “Die Young” singer, 28, filed a lawsuit against the music producer, alleging he sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abused her for a decade.
Dr. Luke, 42, then filed a countersuit, claiming Kesha and her mother, Pebe Sebert, planned to extort him, alleging that the mother and daughter threatened to go public with the assault allegations if he refused to release Kesha from her long-term recording contract and give her publishing rights to her music.
At the same time, Dr. Luke also claimed Kesha’s manager, Jack Rovner, and her mother convinced Kesha to question their recording contract’s validity.
Earlier this month, New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich granted a motion by Pebe to dismiss Luke’s claims against her after determining there was no jurisdiction over her; however, Dr. Luke filed a similar suit against Pebe in Tennessee, which is still in play.
Additionally, the judge dismissed Dr. Luke’s claim that Kesha’s manager Rovner wrongfully interfered in their business relationship, determining that Rovner’s moves were in the scope of his authority as her manager.
