As the war of words between Kesha and famed songwriter/producer Dr. Luke rages on, the list of celebrities and music industry insiders to publicly join the #FreeKesha movement continues to grow.
This morning Kelly Clarkson publicly declared her support for her fellow singer, slamming Luke as a bad person during an interview for Australian radio:
"He's just not a good person," Clarkson responded, when asked about her professional relationship. "We've clashed. But I can't really say anything other than that.
"I wasn't there...But I can remark on his character. Unfortunately, when you have that poor of character, like, so many artists don't like you, don't like working with you, and that's not normal.
"He's just not a good guy...He's just lied a lot, and I've run into a couple of bad situations. He'll just lie to people...And h's difficult to work with, kind of demeaning."
Luke co-wrote Clarkson's 2004 hit "Since U Been Gone," which remains one of her signature songs.
Even so, she claims that she only worked with him on her most recent album because she was "literally blackmailed" by her label.
Kesha claims she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by Dr. Luke, but a court recently denied her request to be released from her contract with Sony and Luke.
