Kesha & Dr. Luke Are Fighting Over the Privacy of Her Medical Records

Although Kesha dropped all charges against Dr. Luke after many years, her battle isn’t over.


Kesha’s ex-producer, Lukasz Gottwald, wants to release more than 900 pages of the singer’s medical records he obtained in an effort to disprove Kesha’s allegations of abuse.

“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,” Dr. Luke’s attorney, Christine Lepra, told People. “Now, Kesha wants to hide her records, while continuing to make self-serving, selective and misleading statements to hurt my clients publicly.”

Kesha has been trying to take her mind off Dr. Luke, and her lawyers rightfully say that releasing the records would leave Kesha vulnerable to the harm he’s trying to continue causing her.

“Ms. Sebert now fears that Gottwald will seek to disclose and disseminate her personal medical records in an attempt to embarrass and harass her,” her attorney, James Pearl, said in the appeal. “The files include gynecological, psychiatric and rehab records going back 10 years. Sebert worries they could become ‘public fodder.'”

We don’t blame her. Can we just leave her alone, and keep her medical records private—as they should be?
