Dr. Luke wants 1.3 M from Kesha

"Plaintiffs have paid Kesha her royalties for all relevant accounting periods, while Kesha baselessly refuses to pay Plaintiffs the much larger sums she owes them," states a memorandum filed by Dr. Luke's attorneys. "In December 2016 alone, Defendant received payments under her contracts with Plaintiffs in excess of $650,000. In sharp contrast, Defendant admits that she owes Plaintiff KMI over $1.3 million in ancillary royalties that she has failed to pay."

 

Royalty rates rarely ever get addressed in court papers, but evidently Kesha's contention of a breached contract and how she and her mother "would be penniless" upon Dr. Luke's legal success has opened the door to accounting in court.  One of the exhibits lodged in court yesterday is Kesha's amended agreement with Dr. Luke's Kasz Money stating that Kesha has agreed to pay his company 10 percent of her net receipts from the use of her name and likeness.

 

In court papers, Dr. Luke's attorney says that Kesha's motion to amend her counterclaims "is yet another example of Kesha and her counsel’s attempt to litigate her dispute with Plaintiffs in the press. It was obviously designed to garner sympathetic headlines for Defendant, and further tarnish Plaintiffs, based upon false assertions and blatant mischaracterizations."

 

"Defendant also would have this Court – and the press and public – believe that Gottwald has interfered with her recording process and has prevented her from recording new music," states the memorandum. "Nothing could be further from the truth. As Kesha’s proposed counterclaim concedes, she is recording in the studio with producers of her choosing and preparation is underway for the release of her next album. Gottwald has not interfered in any way with her recording process; and there is no factual allegation (as opposed to bare conclusion) to the contrary in Kesha’s proposed pleading.”
