Kesha arrives at the 2014 MTV Music Video Awards in Inglewood, California August 24, 2014.

Several days after a New York court determined pop singer Kesha must stay in her contract with Dr. Luke, despite claims that he drugged and raped her, the producer took to Twitter to defend himself. "I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister," he tweeted. Meanwhile, the producer's lawyer Christine Lepera accused Kesha and her team of conducting a "trial by Twitter."
