Kesha worried Dr. Luke will expose her medical records in court case
An already extremely public and exceedingly personal trial may be about to get even more invasive into the life of Kesha Rose Sebert.
The New York Post's Page Six and BuzzFeed report that recent filings in the singer-songwriter's New York legal imbroglio with producer Dr. Luke have asked a Manhattan judge not to let the "over 913 pages of gynecological, psychiatric, and rehabilitation medical records that go back 10 year" be made public. The attorneys of the producer (real name: Lukasz Gottwald), however, are allegedly attempting to deny their confidentiality.
"Ms. Sebert now fears that Gottwald will seek to disclose and disseminate her personal medical records in an attempt to embarrass and harass her," Page Six quotes attorney James Pearl writing in a motion to Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Shirley Werner Kornreich. The lawyer also writes that Sebert "has disclosed highly sensitive personal medical records as part of this litigation, and her position as a world-renowned recording artist in whom there is great public interest renders any potential disclosure of those records potentially harmful to her personal and economic interests."
Meanwhile, BuzzFeed reports that the producer's legal team "maintains that Kesha waived any privacy rights she might have had over her private medical information by 'publicly disclosing details of her alleged medical diagnoses and treatments and putting them at issue in this case, all in an effort to bolster her baseless claims against our clients,' according to court documents."
The case is scheduled to return to court on Oct. 16.
Dr. Luke's camp had yet to respond to a request for comment by time of publishing.
