Things are not looking too good for Sony or Dr. Luke.
Sony offered Kesha out of her contract over her rape allegations but under one condition, she retract her statements against Dr. Luke and apologize publicly. Kesha wasn’t going for it and posted the following message via her Instagram page:
“so. I got offered my freedom IF I were to lie. I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.”
Kesha is still trapped in her Sony deal after a judge refused to terminate the contract and let her record her music independently. She and Dr.Luke are still battling over her mental and sexual abuse allegations and it is unclear as to if a settlement was reached or if an offer was made.
Sony’s PR team is going to have to put in overtime at work today. Trying to bribe an alleged rape victim by offering her out only if she retracts her allegations? That’s low. That shows that they have absolutely no real reason to hold her, they just want her to go via their terms. It’s all about power and it’s clear Kesha already felt powerless when she was being sexually abused and now they are exercising that again by dangling musical freedom in her face but only if she retracts her statements and restores Dr. Luke’s halo. Madness.
