Kesha takes legal action to block Dr Luke releasing her medical records

Pair remain locked in a court battle

Kesha‘s lawyers have filed a motion to try and block Dr Luke from leaking her medical records.

The singer has been embroiled in legal action against the producer and label boss Lukasz Gottwald since 2014. She accused him of rape and sexual abuse.

Kesha was ordered to turn over her medical records pertaining to the alleged abuse after Gottwald requested them in May, in a bid to disprove her claims.

She is now allegedly worried that Gottwald will release her gynaecological, psychiatric and rehab records, which date back 10 years, to the public, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

“Ms Sebert now fears that Gottwald will seek to disclose and disseminate her personal medical records in an attempt to embarrass and harass her,” lawyer James Pearl wrote in a motion to Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Shirley Werner Kornreich.

“Ms Sebert has disclosed highly sensitive personal medical records as part of this litigation, and her position as a world-renowned recording artist in whom there is great public interest renders any potential disclosure of those records potentially harmful to her personal and economic interests,” he continued.

The case is due to resume for a hearing motion on October 16.

Meanwhile, Dr Luke recently filed a second libel lawsuit against Kesha‘s mother, Pebe Sebert.

The songwriter and producer, real name Lukasz Gottwald, originally filed a lawsuit against the singer’s mother in October 2014, accusing her of “defamation” and “tortious interference” in the legal dispute between him and her daughter.

Last month, he filed a second lawsuit against Kesha’s mother, citing an interview she gave to Billboard in March of this year, according to documents obtained by Courthouse News.
