Kesha On Dr. Luke-Sony Lawsuit: “I Find Out The Fate Of My Career Tuesday”
UPDATE: Today (January 25), Kesha gave fans a Twitter update stating her court case will now be pushed back to February 19 due to “travel problems with the weather.” View her tweet below.
Back in November, Kesha filed a request to a judge for permission to record music with anyone besides Dr. Luke. The hearing for that request is next Tuesday, January 26, as Kesha has announced on Instagram.
“the universe is speaking to me today,” she says. “I am filled with so much anxiety and hope and nerves and doubt and all my emotions are going crazy. if u pray, I could use one this week. I find out the fate of my career Tuesday….”
Kesha is still under contract at Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records, a Sony imprint. This is after the singer-songwriter accused him of sexual abuse, then claimed that Sony “failed to investigate Dr. Luke’s conduct, failed to take any corrective action, or actively concealed Dr. Luke’s abuse.”
So far, her legal battle with both has taken up more than a year; last fall, her attorneys argued in court filings that, if more time passes, “her window” of opportunity to maintain a music career “will forever close.”
