SPOTIFY NEWS – Fans of the pop star Kesha are calling on Sony to cut ties with the producer she has accused of raping her according to Consequence of Sound.
About 35 Kesha fans gathered outside Sony’s Manhattan headquarters Friday (March 11). They said they were there to deliver petitions with over 411,000 signatures demanding that Sony releases Kesha from her contract and drop the producer, Dr. Luke.
The group chanted “Free Kesha now!”
The hitmaking producer is not charged with a crime. He says Kesha fabricated her story about being drugged and raped a decade ago to get out of her recording contract.
The rally comes a month after a judge denied the “Tik Tok” singer’s request to be released from her contract.
The hearing led to an outpouring of support from celebrities, including Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich “spoke of the lack of medical evidence such as hospital records to corroborate the assault allegations,” and displayed a certain amount of skepticism over claims made by Kesha’s legal team.
