Dr. Luke speaks out on Twitter: 'I didn’t rape Kesha'

Dr. Luke has protested his innocence in a series of Twitter messages.

The producer has been embroiled in a court case with singer Kesha, who he has worked with for around ten years.

Last week the US star failed in a bid to be removed from a contract with the producer, who she claims drugged and raped her.

Speaking on Twitter on Monday (February 22), Dr. Luke again maintained his innocence and denied ever having sex with Kesha.

He added that her "lies will be exposed" over time as she apparently makes up "untruths" to escape her record deal.

Dr. Luke wrote: "It’s a shame that there’s so much speculation out there basing itself on so little information.

"The only truly objective person who knows the facts is the judge. The judge did not rule in Kesha's favor on Friday.

"I understand why people without all the information are speaking out. I can appreciate their compassion. But lives can get ruined when there’s a rush to judgment before all the facts come out. Look what happened at UVA, Duke etc.

"Of course any sane person is against rape and sexual assault but everybody who is commenting is doing so without knowledge or facts.




"They are getting behind an allegation only - motivated by money. I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister."

Dr. Luke also pointed to a news article that stated Kesha said under oath in 2011 that the producer never made "sexual advances" towards her.

He concluded: "I have 3 sisters, a daughter, and a son with my girlfriend, and a feminist mom who raised me right.

"Kesha and I made a lot of songs together and it was often good but there were creative differences at times. It’s sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue.

"But I feel confident when this is over the lies will be exposed and the truth will prevail...I want to thank all my friends and family who have supported me throughout this.

"This is an ongoing legal case so I won't be responding / talking much about this. This should be tried in a court of law."

On Sunday (February 21) Taylor Swift gave Kesha $250,000 (£175,000) to assist her legal campaign.
