Dr Luke’s Lawyer Denies Sony Are Dropping Producer Over Kesha Legal Dispute

“His representatives are in regular contact with executives at the highest levels at Sony and this has never come up."

Dr Luke’s lawyer has been forced to deny reports that the producer is set to be dropped by his music label.

Following a court ruling that decided Kesha could not be freed from her contract with Dr Luke and Sony, thousands of fans spoke out in favour of the ‘Tik Tok’ singer, who previously sued Luke for sexual assault and emotional abuse. He has vehemently denied her claims.

Nevertheless, public support for Kesha has gained momentum in recent months, and despite the fact the court ruled in Sony and Dr Luke’s favour, The Wrap have claimed that Sony are preparing to terminate Luke’s contract a year early.

His lawyer Christine Lepera has denied the reports, telling Billboard: "Luke has an excellent relationship with Sony.

Stars who have supported Kesha include Lady Gaga and Adele, who used her first speech at last month’s Brit Awards to support the star, a move that was commended by fans, especially given the fact she’s also signed to Sony in the US.

“My message today is don't be afraid to speak up against any injustice you experience,” she said. “Don't let people scare or shame you into changing the things about you that make you unique.

"We all have to fight for what is right, even if the cards are stacked against us. That's the only way that progress happens."
