Kesha sues Sony for putting female artists in
What started as a lawsuit filed by Kesha against producer Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, claiming he drugged, verbally abused, threatened and took advantage of her, causing her to have an eating disorder, has now been amended to also include Sony Music

Among the newly added claims obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Kesha says that "Dr. Luke's proclivity for abusive conduct was open and obvious to [Sony Music Entertainment] executives, who either knew of the conduct and turned a blind eye, failed to investigate Dr. Luke's conduct, failed to take any corrective action, or actively concealed Dr. Luke's abuse."
 
"SME's conduct placed Jane Doe female artists, including Ms. Sebert, in physical danger by giving Dr. Luke full creative and business control, with nearly limitless financial resources, over young female artists who necessarily were compelled to become dependent upon his good will."

Sony has declined to comment while Dr. Luke has gone as far as to file his own lawsuit alleging Kesha is falsely accusing him to cover up contract concers.
