Kesha says she was proposed a deal to obtain her "freedom" in exchange for an apology and a recant of her account of sexual assault, as she continues her legal battle against Dr. Luke.
The 29-year-old pop singer had sued the music producer in 2014 for sexual assault and battery and is seeking to invalidate her recording contracts with him. Dr. Luke, 42, filed a countersuit and called her allegations "defamatory." He also said he "didn't rape Kesha" and "have never had sex with her."
"So. I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie," Kesha said on Instagram Sunday, alongside a selfie of her looking somber. "I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again."
She did not name anyone.
"The court repeatedly stated Kesha is already free to record without Dr. Luke, and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims. That's because all the evidence—including Kesha's own videotaped sworn testimony - show her allegations are false," Rolling Stone quoted Dr. Luke's rep as saying in response following Kesha's post. "The only thing Kesha is not free to do is to continue to lie about Dr. Luke through publicity stunts and outrageous smears, ignoring the fact that by her own free will she went to work and entered into new contracts with Dr. Luke years after this 'incident' supposedly happened."
"Her goal all along has been solely personal enrichment by seeking to break contracts that brought her success and millions so she can enter into more lucrative ones," the lawyer added. "We look forward to our day in court holding Kesha accountable for her lies."
