Well it’s about f*cking time! Sony is reportedly planning to kick Dr. Luke‘s ass to the curb, ending their contract with the producer and Kesha’s alleged rapist.
The company is suffering from a huge PR nightmare, with big name celebrities and protesters siding with Kesha, and the execs are ready to wash their hands of it.
According to reports, Sony is negotiating a deal to cut short Luke’s contract a year before its expiration in hopes of getting the public off it’s back.
“There is no contest. Kesha has no case in regards to her contract but they can’t afford the Adeles of the world out in the streets calling the label unsupportive,” a source close to the situation reveals.
“The fact that this hasn’t already been taken care of with Luke is confusing, especially for people in the building.”
Industry giants like Adele and Lady Gaga among many other artists have come out in support of Kesha and Sony knows keeping Dr. Luke will only further damage its public image.
Luke’s rep released a statement denying the reports and says the producers relationship with Sony has not and will not change anytime soon.
Sony has yet to make a statement so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
As for Kesha’s contract with Luke, it’s seems that her only way out would be if Sony made some kind of deal with him to let the singer go free.
He’s clearly a total prick so I highly doubt he’s ever going to release her on his own. According to her contract, she still owes Luke four more albums.
Stay strong Kesha.
