Reportedly, Dr. Luke is being dropped from Sony due to his ongoing legal battle with Kesha. Kesha is signed to Kemasobe records and which Sony is the parent label. Recently, Sony has been receiving criticism for refusing to release Kesha from her contract with Kemasobe. Although Luke has a year left in his contract Sony maybe forced to let him go.
Last month a judge denied Kesha’s request for a preliminary injuction to be released from Kemasobe Records. Sony released a statement that they have made arrangements for Kesha to record and have no interaction with Luke at all. However the label also states that they do not have the authority to terminate the contract between Luke and Kesha.
Dr. Luke’s attorney stated that, Luke has an excellent relationship with Sony.” “His representatives are in regular contact with executives at the highest levels at Sony and this has never come up.” According to US Weekly, nothing is set stone but the alternative is being discussed.
