Kesha's ongoing battle with Lukasz Gottwald, most commonly known as Dr. Luke, just took an unexpected twist.
Lastly, Dr. Luke released a specific email in which he sounds extremely praiseworthy and supportive of Kesha's work. It was, according to the site, sent in 2010 and reads: "“I know you said you looked like a lesbo but I disagree ― you looked radiant and beautiful. You’re doing exactly what you’re meant to be doing right now. You’re actualizing your dreams. I’m proud of you and love you very much. xo L."
It doesn't come as a surprise that Luke's legal team has released emails as they have maintained since the beginning that many of the things Kesha's team has said about the producer have been taken out of context. On February 15, his legal team released a statement saying that "Kesha and her attorneys continue to mislead by refusing to disclose the larger record of evidence showing the bad faith of Kesha Sebert and her representatives which is greatly damaging to them." It continues: "Rather than agree to a thorough disclosure, Kesha and her representatives improperly publicized, without Court permission, three out-of-context emails which do not present the full picture regarding the events they concern."
These HuffPo documents are just a handful of what were likely daily email exchanges between Kesha and her team through Sony. A response from Kesha regarding the email is expected, as her and Dr. Luke have been in a very public court battle since 2014, when the singer claimed the well-known producer had mentally, physically, and emotionally abused her for years. Of course, there are two sides to every story, and this one email dump is not meant to correct the dozens of upsetting claims Kesha has made or tearfully referenced in interviews and public speeches. She also still has yet to release new music, being locked into her contract at the studio.
