MUSIC- Singer Kesha had accused her former collaborator Dr Luke of raping Katy Perry in a text message she sent to Lady Gaga on February 26, 2016.
A legal battle is currently ongoing between Kesha and Dr Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald. Kesha accuses Dr Luke of sexual assault and emotional abuse. The revelation about the test regarding Katy Perry was made in court documents which have become public.
“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,” the documents read.
Dr Luke’s team said after the documents became public that Kesha’s accusations were false and Perry herself confirmed that he did not rape her.
