Music producer Dr. Luke opened up about the nasty legal battle he’s in with singer Kesha and let it be known that he denies accusations that he harmed her.
He took to Twitter today to defend himself, writing: “I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister.”
He also wrote: “It’s a shame that there’s so much speculation out there basing itself on so little information. The only truly objective person who knows the facts is the judge. The judge did not rule in Kesha’s favor on Friday.”
The judge denied Kesha’s request to be released from her contract with Dr. Luke, as we reported previously. Taylor Swift was among those coming to Kesha’s aid.
E! News notes: “As soon as the decision was made, #FreeKesha began to trend on social media for several hours as Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson and other stars showed their support for the pop star online.”
In today’s Twitter posts, Dr. Luke said: “I understand why people without all the information are speaking out. I can appreciate their compassion. But lives can get ruined when there’s a rush to judgment before all the facts come out. Look what happened at UVA, Duke etc.”
