Kesha won’t be able to try getting out of a recording contract with Dr. Luke, the super-producer whom she claims raped her, a state appeals court decided Tuesday.

The “Praying” singer, whose legal name is Kesha Rose Sebert, is being sued by Dr. Luke for defamation over her claims that he drugged and assaulted her.




Sebert in February 2017 asked Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich for permission to file new counter-claims, in the hopes of ending her contract with the producer, whose legal name is Lukasz Gottwald.

Kornreich rejected Sebert’s request in a ruling Sebert appealed.

But a panel of state Appellate Division judges sided with Kornreich, calling Sebert’s proposed counter-claims “palpably insufficient and devoid of merit.”

Kesha in February 2016 had also unsuccessfully asked Judge Kornreich to let her out of the contract with Sony, which had her working with Gottwald.

“Her counterclaim seeking declaratory relief terminating the agreements on the ground of impossibility and impracticability of performance was speculative, contradicted by her own allegations that she had continued performing under the agreements …” the appeals court said.
