It looks like Kesha and Dr. Luke’s legal tussle is not going to end very soon. The legal battle that began in 2014 is still waiting to come to a close. As evidence in their favor, Kesha’s attorney has submitted new documents stating the ill treatment that the singer faced from her producer.
New emails submitted in the New York Court may help Kesha prove her claims that Lukasz Gottwald aka Dr. Luke ill-treated her. The emails contain an exchange of statements between Kesha’s manager, Monica Cornia and Dr. Luke. Some of the content in the email talk about the producer pointing out the singer’s weight issues.
Kesha And Dr. Luke Legal Battle Intensifies
Kesha and her attorneys are trying to have the court invalidate two record contracts with Dr. Luke. They are asking the court to “free (Kesha) from her abuser and rebuild her physical, emotional, and mental health.”
Her music career has come to a complete halt due to the legal battle. The singer once claimed that the music producer “sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally” abused her since the beginning of their professional relationship. She claims that she was not given creative freedom and that he called her out for her weight constantly.

Email Exchanges Produced In Court
One of the emails exchanged between Kesha’s manager Monica Cornia and Dr. Luke hints upon the producer being harsh about the singer’s weight. “Nobody was calling anybody out” said Lukasz in an email, “We were having a discussion on how she can be more disciplined with her diet. There have been many times we have all witnessed her breaking her diet plan. This perticular [sic] time — it happened to be diet coke and turkey while on an all juice fast.”

Cornia pleads to the producer to be “more human’ with Kesha. Luke says that “A-list songwriters and producers are reluctant to give Kesha their songs because of her weight”, reports Page Six.
Another email exchange in May 2012 brings to fore the lack of creative freedom that Kesha had in choosing her songs. The song in question is “Crazy Kids” where Luke wanted the phrase “You see us in the club sip sippin bub,” while Kesha wanted, “You see us in the streets we da we da freaks.” Upon suggesting changes, Dr. Luke replies, “I don’t give a s–t what you want. If you were smart you would go in and sing it.”
With the new evidence in light, the next hearing may bring some relief to the singer. Kesha and Dr. Luke are scheduled for a telephone conference with the judge next week.
