Every time you think that the very public legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke couldn’t get any uglier, it gets uglier. Last month, Dr. Luke filed a second defamation lawsuit against Kesha’s mother, and now, Kesha’s lawyers have filed a motion to block Dr. Luke from leaking her personal medical records.
Kesha, full name Kesha Rose Sebert, was forced to turn over more than 900 pages of medical records in May as part of her ongoing sexual assault case against the producer, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald. According to Page Six, those records include her gynecological, psychiatric, and rehab records going back over 10 years.
“Ms. Sebert now fears that Gottwald will seek to disclose and disseminate her personal medical records in an attempt to embarrass and harass her,” Kesha’s attorney 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.”
The case is expected to return to court in late October.
