If you’re gonna abuse the shit out of someone and then try to claim you didn’t and that they are just crazy, you might not want to leave a paper trail, music producer and grade A asshole Dr. Luke.
Kesha has spent over a year trying to break her exclusive contract with Dr. Luke on the grounds that he sexually and emotionally abused her, and tortured her about her eating disorder. The emails, between Dr. Luke and Kesha’s manager, Monica Cornia, pretty much back all of that up.
From Page Six:
“Nobody was calling anybody out,” Dr. Luke writes to Cornia at 2:11 a.m. on June 28, 2012, according to a copy of the email.
“We were having a discussion on how she can be more disciplined with her diet. there have been many times we have all witnessed her breaking her diet plan. this perticular [sic] time — it happened to be diet coke and turkey while on an all juice fast,” the producer gripes.
A discussion, huh? Sure. Just a friendly discussion where you try and control what she eats. Sure.
Cornia asks him to be more supportive because she’s “a human and not a machine,” then adds, “if she were a machine that would be way cool and we could do whatever we want.”
Man, all these people are straight up evil. The emails reveal that fixating on Kesha’s weight was Dr. Luke’s main hobby. In another email he said:
“A list songwriters and producers are reluctant to give Kesha their songs because of her weight.”
According to Cornia, during a spat about lyrics in the Kesha hit “Crazy Kids,” Dr. Luke took some cheap shots at Kesha and made her feel like she was unable to talk to him about it. He then proved it by refusing to come downstairs and screaming instead of talking to her about it.
He also said this to her face.
“I don’t give a s–t what you want. If you were smart you would go in and sing it.”
Shout out to that New York judge who decided that Kesha has to keep working with Dr. Luke forever.
