Kesha and Dr. Luke Clash Over Lady Gaga Oscars Tribute

by at .

It was the most emotional night of the 2016 Academy Awards.

At one point during the long ceremony, Lady Gaga sat behind a piano and belted out the meaningful lyrics from "Til It Happens to You," a song about sexual assault.


As you can see in the video below, the artist was joined toward the end of her rendition by numerous victims of this horrible crime.

Gaga received a well-deserved standing ovation from those in attendance, most of whom cried openly throughout the performance.

Soon after it aired, Kesha referenced both Lady Gaga and Vice Presidet Joe Biden, who introduced the singer, by writing the following on Twitter:

"thank you @ladygaga and VP @JoeBiden for bringing attention to sexual assault at the oscars.  it hit very close to my heart for obvious reasons."

Kesha, of course, is referring to the fact that she has filed a lawsuit to free her from her recording contract, claiming in court that producer Dr. Luke sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions over a 10-year span.

Earlier this month, a judge ruled against Kesha.

Numerous celebrities have since showed the artist support on social media (below), with Gaga being among the most prominent.

Dr. Luke, however, refused to let Kesha get away with the implication in her aforementioned Tweet, releasing his own statement to TMZ in which he once again denies ever raping the star.

Said an attorney of the producer to the celebrity gossip site:

"Ms. Sebert, who in sworn videotaped testimony from 2011 stated that she had never been sexually abused or drugged by Dr. Luke is neither a victim nor the appropriate person to be held up as an example for this important issue."

Kesha argues that Dr. Luke threatened her into denying allegations of rape during the deposition in question.
