'Power lawyer' joins Kesha's legal team

In her ongoing battle to extradite herself from a contract, Kesha Rose Sebert has added a legal heavyweight to her team. As the pop star prepares to take a judge's denial of an injunction up on appeal, she's tapped Daniel Petrocelli at O'Melveny & Myers to represent her.

If Kesha is feeling confident, it could be because days earlier, Petrocelli officially joined Mark Geragos as her legal counsel. Perhaps best known for beating O.J. Simpson in a wrongful death civil case nearly two decades ago, Petrocelli is also a bit of a turnaround specialist, having entered cases in mid-stream on behalf of Disney and Warner Bros. in fights involving Winnie the Pooh and Superman, respectively, and pulling off huge comebacks. Petrocelli has been a fixture on THR's "Power Lawyers" list of the top 100 attorneys in Hollywood.

Petrocelli's latest engagement isn't exactly his first foray into this war. When Dr. Luke originally sued Kesha, a tortious interference claim was also brought against Jack Rovner of Vector Management for allegedly cajoling Kesha into repudiating her recording agreements. Petrocelli represented Rovner, and in early February, was successful in convincing the judge to dismiss the claim against the manager.

I think this will be so good for her case. Mark is great at criminal law, so he's going to be at his best when dealing with the rape and abuse claims but she really needs a lawyer who's strong on the business side. This guy has that kind of experience.

From Rolling Stone (posted 20 hours ago). This was mentioned in an article about Keshas instagram post. 

"Kesha's legal team, led by Geragos, is also said to be considering bringing on attorney Daniel Petrocelli."

So I guess its true, thats good. 

Kesha has recently sold her house in Nashville (the one we saw in My Crazy Beautiful Life) quite a lot, so I guess she needed the money to cover all costs.

Ugh, I'm happy. She needs a powerful team, and Mark alone wasn't cutting it.

Are they reliable though

Very. The Hollywood Reporter has been around for decades since the birth of Hollywood. They're the ones that have been the first to report on most of Kesha's legal filings. It's Hollywood Life that isn't reliable.

Luke's lawyer has engaged in a lot of victim blaming that hasn't gone over well in the media. She also hasn't been able to provide any believable explanation for why Kesha is doing all this. I feel like all the lawyers in this case have been messy.
