Kesha’s Medical Records Won’t Go Public In Ongoing Legal Battle Against Dr. Luke
Score one for Kesha. Earlier this week, she turned in her most sensitive medical records to Dr. Luke‘s legal team — the latest phase in her ongoing legal battle against the music producer. But the pop singer also filed a motion to prevent those same records from going public. Fortunately for her, yesterday (October 14) a Manhattan judge ruled to keep those records sealed.
“To protect the privacy of defendant Kesha Rose Sebert, to insulate her from unnecessary embarrassment and to protect her medical providers from the press and the media … the records of her treatment … shall not be disclosed to anyone except the parties to this action, their attorneys, and experts retained by the parties who signed a confidentiality agreement,” the ruling reads, according to PEOPLE.
Kesha had turned over “gynecological, psychiatric and rehabilitation records going back more than 10 years,” according to the motion.
Dr. Luke’s lawyer Christine Lepera argues that Kesha made a fuss over nothing. A statement recommended that “the Court—and not Kesha’s lawyers—should decide” whether those records get released. At the same time, though, Lepera said, “We in fact offered to keep the records confidential pending the Court’s decision as to them. Kesha’s attorneys refused that offer, and instead filed their misleading motion for more press attacks on my clients.”
