Kesha: I Was Offered Freedom for Apology

Singer Kesha claimed Sunday that she was offered to be released from her contract with Sony Music and Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records if she publicly apologized for accusing her ex-producer of rape. “So, I got offered my freedom if I were to lie,” she wrote on Instagram. “I would have to apologize publicly and say that I never got raped. This is what happens behind closed doors. I will not take back the truth. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.” A statement on Dr. Luke’s behalf was released to Rolling Stone in response, accusing Kesha of “publicity stunts and outrageous smears.” The statement also said, “The court repeatedly stated Kesha is already free to record without Dr. Luke and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims.”
