“Tik Tok” star Kesha broke into tears Friday when a Manhattan Supreme Court judge refused to let her walk away from a six-album deal with Sony — and the man she claims raped her.
The singer had sought to nullify her recording contract because it brought her into contact with super-producer Dr. Luke, whose real name is Luke Gottwald.
KESHA’S ALLEGED RAPE HAPPENED WHEN SHE WAS 18-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN
The 28-year-old, whose real name is Kesha Rose Sebert, claims that Dr. Luke (inset) drugged her with a pill that made her black out and raped her shortly after her 18th birthday in California. He was never criminally charged.
Sony has offered to let her work with another producer, but Kesha said she fears the company won’t promote her music as heavily if she’s not working with Gottwald, their biggest hitmaker.
