Kesha's Mother Compares Daughter's Record Deal To Slavery
The series of scathing tweets began with then comment, "Kesha can't legally put music out unless she makes it under complete control of a man who raped her at 18." From there, Pebe Sebert tweeted:
This man warned, if she did not do what she was told, he would tie her up in litigations until she was 'too old' to make a record. I was there. I heard him say this to her, after he told her she was nothing without him! Sony supports the rapist. The rapist is doing exactly what he warned he would do. And that is the reason Kesha can not give her sweet ANIMALS new music. If someone signs a contract to become someone's slave, is slavery then legal? Maybe it time we STOP SUPPORTING COMPANIES, whose only moral compass is $$$? We can change the world by not buying the products sold by unethical companies. Then they change, or go out of business."
Kesha first filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke in October 2014, accusing him of abuse in a sexual, emotional, and verbal nature for over ten years. Dr. Luke countered with a defamation lawsuit that also named Pebe Sebert. Kesha eventually added Sony in the suit alleging they knowingly "forced an abusive relationship" between Dr. Luke and herself. Read more and see the tweet here.
