Katy Perry Fights With Dr. Luke to Keep Kesha Testimony Sealed

By TheBlast Staff

Katy Perry is battling it out with Dr. Luke over testimony she gave in his legal battle with Kesha and the pop star is demanding he not be allowed to reveal what she said.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Dr. Luke is opposing Perry’s attempt to seal the testimony she gave during a 2017 deposition.

Luke says, "Throughout the litigation, Plaintiffs have been sensitive to and mindful of Ms. Hudson’s privacy interests and have gone to great lengths to preserve her confidentiality in connection with this case."

Katy demanded certain portions of her depo be sealed from being referenced by Luke in court filings. She argues that excerpts should be sealed “for the independent reason that it purportedly is inadmissible opinion testimony in response to a vague and ambiguous question which was objected to on the record at the deposition.”

The music producer says Katy has had ample time to review her transcript and make any necessary clarifying changes to the testimony, and they note she never returned the transcript she was sent or signed a copy.

Dr. Luke is demanding the court shut down Katy’s plea and for him to reveal what she said under oath.

Back in August, Kesha and Luke reached a deal to keep the testimony of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry sealed but both noted the issue could be brought up again in the future.
