Although Sony Music claimed that they couldn’t #FreeKesha last year, it appears that the record label wants to be free from Dr. Luke (Lukasz Gottwald).
After a long working relationship together, The Hollywood Reported announced that the company is cutting ties with the hit-making producer and that he is no longer the CEO of Kemosabe Records.
Neither one of the parties have released an official statement, but Dr. Luke’s profile has been taken down from Sony’s website. Page Six claims that even though Dr. Luke’s contract with Sony expired at the end of March, there are still several ongoing projects down the pipeline.
How will this outcome affect Kesha, you ask? The Hollywood Reported pointed out that this could potentially be bad news for the 30-year-old singer. Once the music giant is no longer the middle-man between Kesha and Dr. Luke, this might support the music producer’s defamation lawsuit that suggest Kesha’s sexual assault accusations have caused irreparable damage to his career.
