Sony Music finally drop Dr. Luke, three years after Kesha’s allegations

Sony Music have finally cut ties with Dr. Luke almost three years after Kesha claimed the producer sexually assaulted her in a hotel room.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dr. Luke, or Lukasz Gottwald, is currently still involved in a legal battle with singer, Kesha over the allegations.

He has been removed from his position as head of Sony’s Kemosabe Records, with the company suggesting that it wants to distance themselves from the accused amid the controversy.

The legal dispute has been ongoing since 2014, when Dr. Like sued Kesha for defamation and she in turn, countersued, claiming the producer forced her to take a date-rape drug before proceeding to sexually assault her.

The singer also claimed that he maintained ‘’suffocating control’’ over her life for a decade, and would constantly insult her looks and musical ability.

A court document, filed last Friday stated that Kemosabe Records was "wholly-owned by Sony Music Entertainment. Lukasz Gottwald is no longer the CEO… and does not have authority to act on its behalf."

It’s not all good news though. Many people are suggesting that Dr. Luke could use his dismissal to back-up his claims that Kesha’s accusation has had a damaging effect on his career.
