Kesha’s Legal Team Seeking To Stop Dr. Luke From Sealing Court Records

Kesha’s legal team is asking a judge to deny Dr. Luke’s request to seal parts of the 2014 lawsuit in which he claims she falsely accused him of drugging and raping her. 

The "Tik Tok" singer’s lawyer, Leah Godesky, wrote in legal papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court Thursday (Oct. 14th) that Dr. Luke and Sony “may be concerned that it won’t look good when the public learns how little money they’ve been paying a Grammy-nominated artist, but that concern is not a justification for sealing.“

Godeskey argued that the pop star’s pay is relevant to Luke’s claims that she breached her contract with his production company and to any calculation of damages she could face. 

According to Page Six, the record producer’s legal team responded in a statement, calling Kesha’s filing “more false nonsense.” 

The statement said, “Dr. Luke isn’t trying to keep secret how much money Kesha made — and she made a lot. We invite Kesha to give the public all of her royalty statements. They will show the multi-millions of dollars Kesha has been paid.

“In truth, Dr. Luke moved to seal parts of contracts — they are mostly technical legal terms, and they don’t show the multi-millions of dollars Kesha made. The court already sealed them before. Dr. Luke has a duty to other people and companies to keep them confidential.”
