Kesha Disputes Defamation Ruling With Appeal Filing

In February, the ‘Tik Tok’ hitmaker has been found liable of defaming her former music producer, Dr. Luke by accusing him of raping Katy Perry in a series of tweets sent to Lady GaGa.

AceShowbizKe$ha has filed an appeal after losing a defamation battle with her former music producer, Dr. Luke.

The pop star is refusing to pay the $374,000 (£291,000) she was ordered to pay the hitmaker and in new court documents, obtained by The Blast, she is asking lawmakers at a higher court to look at the case and reverse the order.

She was found liable of defaming Dr. Luke last month, in a series of tweets sent to Lady GaGa, in which she accused the music mogul of raping Katy Perry. Perry testified under oath and made it clear the story was not true.

Kesha’s battle with Dr. Luke began in 2014, when she accused him of infliction of emotional distress, gender-based hate crimes and discrimination. She also alleged the producer was “sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally” abusive towards her.

She previously lost a court battle with the producer over a contract she signed with him at the beginning of her career.
