"Kesha now faces an abysmal decision: work with her alleged abuser...or idly and passively wait as her career tick-tocks away," writes her attorney. "She is precluded from working in perpetuity because the term of her contract can only be satisfied if she records three more albums. Kesha needs the Court’s assistance."
Spin is reporting that Kesha has pushed for a preliminary injunction in the ongoing legal battle against her alleged sexual abuser Dr. Luke.
Until this Court rules on the declaratory judgment claim, Kesha is at an impasse. She cannot work with music producers, publishers, or record labels to release new music. With no new music to perform, Kesha cannot tour. Off the radio and stage and out of the spotlight, Kesha cannot sell merchandise, receive sponsorships, or get media attention. Her brand value has fallen, and unless the Court issues this injunction, Kesha will suffer irreparable harm, plummeting her career past the point of no return.
On Monday in a New York court, Gottwald and his attorneys filed suit against Geragos for the "horrific, outrageous and maliciously false assertion that [Gottwald] raped the world famous musical artist Lady Gaga."

It also blasts Geragos for keeping his comments online after Gaga publicly refuted the alleged rape accusation.

In one instance, Kesha claims he forced her to snort something before getting on a plane … and during the trip he forced himself on her while she was drugged.

Kesha claims she woke up the following afternoon, naked in Dr. Luke's bed, sore, sick … and with no memory of how she got there.
