Kesha's lawyers accuse Dr. Luke of stalling defamation trial

The Tik Tok singer’s legal team submitted a filing on 30 August to a New York judge, claiming producer Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald, was stalling proceedings. The two are scheduled to go to trial on 20 February to settle a defamation suit that the producer filed against Kesha in 2014. Dr. Luke, 48, sued the 35-year-old singer for defamation after she first sued him claiming that he knocked her out with an unknown substance and raped her during nearly a decade of alleged abuse.
