Dr. Luke is out at Sony Music, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
He’s the man behind smash hits from Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne, and Kesha.
But it was his relationship with Kesha that brought the biggest headlines, after she accused him of rape, among other charges in October of 2014. She wanted out of her contract with Sony immediately.
Unfortunately she lost her case, and was told to finish her deal, but didn’t have to work with Dr. Luke going forward.(She is filing appeals in other courts to get it overturned) But the #FreeKesha movement was born out of it.
He decided to file a defamation suit against her in retaliation(which is still pending)
Dr. Luke created Kemosabe Records, but apparently isn’t even in charge of it anymore, and his profile has been taken down from the website.
Neither Dr. Luke, or Ke$ha reps have commented as of writing this.
