Kesha has withdrawn some of her charges against the former producer Dr. Luke. The singer does not want to bring him to justice for sexual violence, but still intends to fight for the rights to her own songs.
My fight continues. I need to get my music out. I have so much to say. This lawsuit is so heavy on my once free spirit, and I can only pray to one day feel that happiness again. I am continuing to fight for my rights in New York. Thank you for all your support. The support of my fans has been so beautiful and I'm so grateful for it. I'm Not sure where I would be without you all.
The case between Dr. Luke and Kesha, as well as his Kemosabe Records label, has been going on for four years. All this time the performer is trying to break a contract with the record company and does not release new tracks, although the court allowed her to work with other producers. She was indeed able to release a song with another producer earlier this year, and has made live appearances, but has yet to fully restart her music career, which was functionally put on hold in 2014 with the filing of the sexual abuse case.
“Kesha is focused on getting back to work. We have conveyed to Sony Music and the label Kesha’s strong desire to release the single and an album as soon as possible”, – the lawyer said.
Kesha made her frustrations at not being able to produce new songs clear, saying last month that she thrives from making music, and “much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don’t get to create and perform.”
The singer’s lawyer declared that Kesha had withdrawn her claim of sexual abuse on August 1, 2016, but she is still waiting for the complaint of the music rights, filed in New York.
