Kesha Fans Express Outrage At Verdict
Kesha's fans express their outrage on Twitter when a judge ruled in favor of Dr. Luke.

Dr. Luke has become Public Enemy No. 1 in the wake of Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich’s decision not to grant an injunction that would allow Kesha to leave Sony/Kemosabe Records. The hashtag #FreeKesha has been trending globally since Friday and a long list of celebrities (Halsey, Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Iggy Azalea, Adam Lambert, Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson, for starters) have stepped forward to offer their support.

The outrage stems from the pop star being cuffed (for all intents and purposes) to her alleged rapist. However, the producer broke his silence this afternoon (February 22) — vehemently denying the allegations against him. “Until now I haven’t commented on the lawsuits, which should be resolved in court not here on Twitter,” the 42-year-old began a 25-tweet statement. “It’s a shame that there’s so much speculation out there basing itself on so little information.”

“I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her,” Lukasz Gottwald (his real name) insisted. “Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister.” He then proffered evidence to back up his assertions, including sworn testimony from the former K$. “Kesha has denied under oath the horrible allegations now being made against me,” the producer wrote. “Here is the testimony.” See his tweets below.
