Kesha Sues Dr. Luke; Singer Claims Famed Producer Forced Her to Take Drugs, Sexually Abused Her For 10 Years

by at .

Kesha is suing renowned pop music mogul Dr. Luke, alleging that the hit-making producer began sexually, emotionally, and physically abusing her beginning when she first signed with his record label at the age of 18.

Kesha had previously blamed Dr. Luke for her eating disorder, but according to lawsuit documents obtained by TMZ Luke's mistreatment of the pop star was far more horrendous than she ever indicated in the past.

The suit details some shocking behavior by Luke (real name: Lukasz Gottwald) including an incident in which 41-year-old "forced" Kesha to get drunk with him before offering what he referred to as "sober pills."

Kesha says she awoke in Luke's bed the following day, sore, sick, and with no memory of how she got there.

On another occasion, Luke allegedly convinced Kesha to snort an unknown substance before boarding a plane with him. Once in the air, she says he repeatedly attempted to force himself on her.

The suit also alleges that Luke once "violently" attacked Kesha at his Malibu home. She apparently escaped by running barefoot down the Pacific Coast Highway and hiding in the mountains.

Following Kesha's recent rehab stint, the singer has made efforts to regain control of her life and career, both of which she says were stolen from her by Luke through abuse and manipulation.

Recently, Kesha dropped the dollar sign from her name, a symbolic gesture intended to signify a shift in her music and public image.

Gottwald has yet to publicly respond to the allegations against him.
