Kesha, Dr. Luke Fight Over Singer's Medical Records

The long legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke continues to rage on, as Dr. Luke's legal team "refused to agree to keep Kesha's 913 pages of gynecological, psychiatric and rehabilitation medical records confidential. "Because Kesha made public accusations and in the case that she was allegedly harmed by Dr. Luke, the Court ordered her to produce her medical records. Now, Kesha wants to hide her records, while continuing to make self-serving, selective and misleading statements to hurt my clients publicly," said Gottwald's lawyer Christine Lepera in a statement," reports Rolling Stone.
Buzzfeed reports, "Kesha is trying to stop Dr. Luke from releasing information from a decade's worth of her personal medical records, according to court papers filed Monday." The outlet later adds, "According to the most recent filing, Kesha had asked Dr. Luke to agree to a standard protective order to safeguard her "private and sensitive information from public and media scrutiny." But "Gottwald rejected it," claiming the right to use her medical records, including with the public and media, "without condition," the court documents state.
"After negotiations regarding the treatment of the records fell through, Kesha's attorneys turned to Judge Shirley Kornreich to intervene and grant a request for a protective order."
This is just the newest development in the two year legal battle battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke. A hearing about the protective order is currently set for October 26th.
