Sony Finally Speaks Out About Kesha's Legal Battle With Dr. Luke


This month, #SonySupportsRape was trending on Twitter alongside #FreeKesha as fans accuse the record label of forcing the singer to work under her alleged abuser for up to six total records.

Kesha's most recent request to be released from her contract with Dr. Luke was denied by a judge, prompting a second wave of the pop star's supporters to rally against the producer and the label.

Today, lawyer Scott A. Edelman released a statement on Sony's behalf, insisting the label has its artist's best interest at heart.

According to The New York Times, the statement read,

In the meantime, Kesha remains signed to Kemosabe Records, Dr. Luke's label under the Sony umbrella, via a separate arrangement with his production company, Kasz Money Inc.
