Singer Kesha plans to appeal the decision by New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich to deny her motion to be released from her contract with Dr. Luke. The pop star has filed another court filing according to Us Magazine, “Plaintiff seeks reversal of the Order on the following grounds.First, the Court erred in basing its decision on its finding that Kesha could record without interference from Gottwald. Although it recognized that ‘slavery was done away with a long time ago’ and that ‘[y]ou can’t force someone to work … in a situation in which they don’t want to work,’ the Court’s ruling requiring Kesha to work for Gottwald’s companies, purportedly without his involvement, does just that.”
In a statement to E!News a Rep for Dr. Luke said, “The Court repeatedly stated Kesha was already free to record without Dr. Luke, and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims. That’s because all the evidence—including Kesha’s own sworn testimony—show her allegations are false. Her attorneys can continue manufacturing even more false and outrageous claims, but the fact remains that her time would be better spent in a studio than wasting time having her lawyer and mother spin lies in the media.”
Kesha is bound to Dr. Luke’s record company for a 6-album contract.
