In a recent deposition which was unsealed singer Katy Perry on Monday has shot down a rumour that she was raped by American record producer Dr Luke.
Pop sensation Katy Perry allegedly shot down a rumor that Dr. Luke raped her.
The document was released as part of the producer’s defamation suit against singer Kesha, who has earlier accused him of rape.
Not only this, Dr. Luke’s attorneys have also accused Kesha of spreading an allegation that he raped Katy Perry.
However, in her deposition, Perry adamantly denied the rumor.
Here are the details:
“Did Dr. Luke ever rape you?” an attorney asked.
“No,” Perry replied.
“Did Dr. Luke ever sexually assault you?”
“Did he ever give you a roofie?”
“Did you have a sexual relationship with Dr. Luke at all?”
“A romantic relationship?”
However, as per the suit, Kesha sent a text message to pop singer Lady Gaga in back in February 2016 in which she claimed that Dr Luke had raped Ms Perry.
“He said something like, ‘I heard he raped Katy, too,'” Lady Gaga testified.
Gaga said she was with Kesha at that moment, where Mr Janick was showing support for Kesha.
“He said something like, ‘I heard he raped Katy, too,’” Lady Gaga testified.
“The false narrative Kesha created about being raped became widely accepted, damaging Dr Luke’s reputation irreparably,” his lawyers stated. “There is nothing worse than abuse and sexual assault. Dr Luke supports any woman or man who seeks to address sexual abuse in the legal system. That is not what happened here. It is also horrendous to falsely accuse someone of a heinous act.”
