Katy Perry and Lady Gaga Dragged Into Kesha and Dr. Luke’s Legal Battle

Katy Perry and Lady GaGa have now been dragged into Kesha’s ongoing sexual assault case against Dr. Luke.

A private text message that Kesha sent to Lady Gaga in April 2016 was added as evidence earlier this year and a judge has given Luke the green light to show the message to Perry and GaGa.

While the documents didn’t reveal the nature of the text or how it may help in either side’s case, they did state: “Gottwald may share with Lady Gaga and Katy Perry the April 2016 text that Kesha sent to Lady Gaga, which Kesha turned over in discovery.”

It is unclear what involvement Perry has in the text, and why Dr. Luke has been given permission to show her the message.

Gaga, however, has been a long-time supporter of Kesha and her quest against Dr. Luke.

“I feel like she’s being very publicly shamed for something that happens in the music industry all the time, to women and men,” she said previously. “I just want to stand by her side because I can’t watch another woman that went through what I’ve been through suffer.”

Perry has yet to comment publicly on the legal battle between Dr. Luke and Kesha.
