Kesha's Fashion Week Message For Dr. Luke
Kesha turned heads at a New York Fashion Week event by rocking a dress with a message.

Kesha’s legal bill just doubled. The much-missed pop diva has amended her lawsuit against Dr. Luke to include Sony Music Entertainment (SME). She alleges that they knew about her mistreatment and did nothing to stop it. According to her new complaint: “Dr. Luke’s proclivity for abusive conduct was open and obvious to… executives, who either knew of the conduct and turned a blind eye, failed to investigate Dr. Luke’s conduct, failed to take any corrective action, or actively concealed Dr. Luke’s abuse.”

“SME’s conduct placed Jane Doe female artists, including Ms. Sebert, in physical danger by giving Dr. Luke full creative and business control, with nearly limitless financial resources, over young female artists who necessarily were compelled to become dependent upon his good will,” the document continues. “Based on SME’s conduct, SME has forced an abusive relationship between Dr. Luke and Ms. Sebert to this day.” Sony Music has declined to comment, while Dr. Luke’s legal team called the amended complaint “a desperate effort.”

However the court case plays out, it looks increasingly unlikely that we’ll hear new music from Kesha in 2015. Which is the real tragedy because no one does irreverent, balls-to-the-wall pop music better than her. Let us know how you feel about the latest turn of events in the comments below.
