Sony Music Ends Relationship With Dr. Luke Amid Kesha Controversy: Report
Sony Music is reportedly in negotiations with super producer Dr. Luke to part ways, in the wake of sexual assault allegations by Kesha.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, court documents reveal that Dr. Luke is no longer CEO of Kemosabe Records – which he formed with Sony in 2011 – and the label "asserts he no longer has authority to act on its behalf."
Sony Music's web page devoted to Dr. Luke has also been removed.
Neither side has commented on the report.
Since coming forward with her claims in October 2015, Kesha has shed major insight on her lengthy working relationship with the producer. She alleged Dr. Luke forced her to take a date-rape drug and took advantage of her in a hotel room and also claimed that the producer exerted "suffocating control" over her career.
Dr. Luke fired back with a defamation suit, which is pending.
