Kesha’s ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke has reached a new low, as the music producer refuses to keep the singer’s medical records private.
Kesha says Dr. Luke’s refusal to keep her medical history private is part of his ongoing legal strategy to give her “extreme embarrassment and harassment, ” reports Buzzfeed. As a result, the singer is asking a judge to issue a protective order over her records.
Meanwhile, Dr. Luke’s team refuses to keep her gynecological, psychiatric and rehabilitation medical records confidential, citing her previous accusations of their client as the cause.
“Because Kesha made public accusations and in the case that she was allegedly harmed by Dr. Luke, the Court ordered her to produce her medical records,” said his lawyer Christine Lepera in a statement. “Now, Kesha wants to hide her records, while continuing to make self-serving, selective and misleading statements to hurt my clients publicly.”
“Our position is that that the Court — and not Kesha’s lawyers — should decide whether Kesha’s medical information remains confidential given her public disclosures,” Lepera continues. “We in fact offered to keep the records confidential pending the Court’s decision as to them. Kesha’s attorneys refused that offer, and instead filed their misleading motion for more press attacks on my clients.”
The hearing for a protective order of Kesha’s medical history is scheduled for October 26.
