The fall out from the Kesha court case continued last night and this morning.
Dr Luke, the music producer who is accused by Kesha of rape, assault and a myriad of other offences, took to Twitter to deny the claims against himself.
In the tweets, Dr Luke took issue with the media speculation around the case and restated his innocence.
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.— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
Imagine if you or somebody you loved was publicly accused of a rape you knew they didn't do. Imagine that.— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
Kesha and I made a lot of songs together and it was often good but there were creative differences at times.— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
But I feel confident when this is over the lies will be exposed and the truth will prevail..— Dr. Luke Doctor Luke (@TheDoctorLuke) February 22, 2016
You can read the full list of tweets here. There has been no response to these tweets yet from Kesha. However, more musicians have come out in support of the singer. Most interestingly, two high-profile music producers have offered their help to Kesha to make new music.
Jack Antonoff, who co-wrote a number of songs of Taylor Swift's 1989, offered his assistance.
hey @kesharose -- don't know what the legal specifics are, but if you want to make something together & then leak it for everyone I'm around— jackantonoff (@jackantonoff) February 22, 2016
Music producer Zedd, who's worked with Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez and others, also offered his support.
@KeshaRose very very sorry to hear about the whole situation. I'll be happy to produce a song for you if you want my help.— Zedd (@Zedd) February 22, 2016
It's great that male musicians are showing their solidarity with Kesha (as they should tbh). We hope more musicians will put themselves forward. We're also (rather selfishly) imagining if her comeback album could be as amazing as 1989. With the mounting pressure on Sony to #FreeKesha, we wonder if this might become a reality.
We're rooting for you, Kesha!
