Sony Music to Drop Dr. Luke


Dr. Luke to be kicked out of Sony Music.

Sony Music will reportedly dump mega-producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald due to the public-relations nightmare that’s resulted from pop-star Kesha’s sexual-abuse allegations against him and the tense court battles to get her out of a contract with him. Many celebrities have since come to Kesha’s rescue on the matter.

“The fact that this hasn’t already been taken care of is confusing, especially for people in the building,” says one insider. Because Dr. Luke has never been charged in court, his exit from Sony Music would have to be mutual and likely negotiated. (Gottwald has always denied the accusations, which included allegations of rape.)

A New York judge ruled last month that Kesha cannot exit from her contract with Dr. Luke, after hearing testimony that the producer invested $60 million in her career and allowed her to make music without his involvement. In a separate statement, Dr. Luke’s lawyer denied the report: “This is not true. Luke has an excellent relationship with Sony.”

Do you agree with Sony Music’s decision to drop Dr. Luke?
