Kesha accused producer of raping Katy Perry, court papers claim in defamation case

Kesha slimed her producer in a text message to Lady Gaga, claiming he sexually assaulted Katy Perry, new documents in a defamation case against her claim.

Producer Dr. Luke is suing the “Tik Tok” singer, whose real name is Kesha RoseSebert, for her allegations that he drugged and raped her.

Dr. Luke, whose name is Lukasz Gottwald, says in recent court papers that Kesha sent Lady Gaga a text message on Feb. 26. 2016, that “repeated Defendant’s false claim that Gottwald had raped her” and “falsely asserted that Gottwald had also raped Kathryn Hudson p/k/a Katy Perry.”

After the exchange between Kesha and Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, the “Bad Romance” singer “spread negative messages about Gottwald in the press and on social media,” Gottwald alleges.

The filing also says Perry sat for a deposition in Gottwald’s Manhattan Supreme Court case. No details of what she was asked or answered were included in the court papers.

Neither Gottwald’s nor Kesha’s lawyers immediately responded to requests for comment.

Representatives for Gaga and Perry also didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

A New York appeals court recently decided Kesha can’t try to get out of her recording contract with Gottwald, calling her proposed counterclaims against him “palpably insufficient and devoid of merit."
