Sony Addresses Kesha Vs Dr. Luke Legal Battle

February 26, 2016


The Sony Corporation has finally addressed the high-publicity legal battle between pop singer Kesha and producer Dr. Luke. Scott A. Edelman, one of the company’s attorneys, spoke to The New York Times, and revealed Sony’s standpoint and thoughts on this controversial subject.

Edelman said that “Sony has made it possible for Kesha to record without any connection, involvement or interaction with Luke whatsoever, but Sony is not in a position to terminate the contractual relationship between Luke and Kesha.”

He added that the company is “doing everything it can to support the artist in these circumstances, but is legally unable to terminate the contract to which is not a party.”

In other words, Kesha has a contract with Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records, which is under Dr. Luke’s Kasz Money production company. Therefore, Sony is not involved even though Kemosabe is Sony’s subsidiary.

Kesha is bound to a six-album deal in her contract.

In the legal documents she issued against the veteran music producer and guitarist, the “Tik Tok” songstress alleged that the producer was abusive toward her, both mentally and physically, and that he even raped her at one point.

They have been working together for 10 years.
