Yesterday, anyone whose hair stands on the back of their neck when they hear about Dr. Luke was given yet another reason to dislike him. There was a new development in his defamation suit against Kesha and her mom Pebe Sebert. Dr. Luke claimed that Kesha said in 2016 text messages to Lady Gaga that he had raped both herself and Katy Perry. Dr. Luke has always been quick to deny any allegation made against him by Kesha, and this latest situation is no different.
He was probably hoping that sort of allegation would remain within the walls of the courtroom, but it got out, which means he had to put his legal team to work on a public statement on his behalf. Of course, his denial involves calling Kesha a liar.
“Katy Perry herself confirmed that Dr. Luke did not rape her. Kesha’s accusation to the contrary – just like her other outrageous lies about Dr. Luke – is baseless and irresponsible, and it is disrespectful to both Katy Perry and Dr. Luke. In his defamation lawsuit against Kesha, Dr. Luke seeks damages for the harm caused by these malicious falsehoods.”
Dr. Luke had worked with Katy Perry numerous times on three different albums, some around the same time he was working with Kesha. People reached out to Kesha for a comment, which she declined. E! News reached out to Katy Perry for her thoughts, and she also declined. Katy has never commented publicly on this messy situation.
Dr. Luke has denied the rape allegations since the beginning many years ago. I just can’t help but wonder why he hasn’t offered to take a lie detector test. Or maybe he tried, but the polygraph examiner determined any results would be inconclusive once they realized they were dealing with a guy who has built his career around identifying as a fake doctor.
Kesha has been battling her former producer and alleged abuser Dr. Luke for four years. She’s still contractually bound to him, and as of right now he’s suing her and her mother Pebe Sebert for defamation. Lady Gaga was dragged into Dr. Luke’s defamation suit about a year ago, and now Katy Perry is involved.
Katy Perry is on tour in Europe and brought her pupper Nugget with her. Nugget is a teenie tiny “micro teacup poodle”. Sadly, these teenie tiny dogs that are so popular with celebrities (I’m looking at you, Wonky) are about as robust as a wet Kleenex. So little Nugget fell off the bed in the hotel and had to be resuscitated with CPR! Thank goodness Katie’s assistant Tamra was on the scene. She saved Nugget’s life with a CPR technique she learned from watching a guy save a squirrel on the ani-pals website The Dodo.
Either because she realized the grudge game was blowing up in her face, or maybe she just had a great afternoon with her cats and was feeling selfless, but Taylor Swift took one look at the olive branch Katy Perry sent her on the opening night of her tour and happily accepted it. No, really.
When one feud closes, another opens! Katy Perry must have realized her American Idol check is a one-and-done kind of deal and is eventually going to have to do a duets album to get back on the Top 40 because she sent a literal olive branch to Taylor Swift, and the Butterscotch Don seemed to bite and accept the peace offering. But someone who is not thrilled to be in the presence of Katy is Rihanna, as one report would have us believe those two have been sparring since around the time Katy was canoodling with Orlando Bloom.

Taylor Swift And Katy Perry Made Up, But She’s Still Crying Over Getting “Bullied” By Kim Kartrashian And Kanye West
The stupid feud that started over a stolen back-up dancer (or John Mayer, or Taylor Swift telling Katy Perry she has cankles in front of the entire homeroom, or Katy Perry telling Taylor Swift her split ends are gross in front of the entire homeroom, or Taylor Swift stealing Katy Perry’s panties and freezing them at Becca Moyer’s slumber party) has finally come to an end. Katy Perry said publicly said before that she wants to be done with the junior high school cafeteria tussle with Taylor Swift. Taylor hasn’t said anything, but yesterday was the first night of her Reputation tour and she has empty seats to fill, so she posted an Instagram story of her opening up an olive branch from Katy. Are we sure that the olive branch wasn’t covered with laxative fumes that caused Taylor Swift to get the violent shits during her show? I mean, I did see some clips from her show in Glendale, AZ last night and she was dancing in a stiff “clenching my ass cheeks” sort of way. But then again, doesn’t she always?
