Sony Music is reportedly dropping Dr. Luke after Kesha's explosive sexual assault claims

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Music is severing its ties with Dr. Luke at
Kemosabe Records, which is a subsidiary of Sony. Dr. Luke established Kemosabe Records with Sony in 2011.
Over the past few years, Sony has been under immense pressure from supporters of Kesha to fire Dr. Luke over the singer’s allegations against him.

In 2014, Kesha accused Dr. Luke — the executive producer of both of her alumbs — of giving her drugs and sexually assaulting her. She also accused him of threatening her if she went public with the claims. Kesha is still legally binded to a contract with Dr. Luke, and the two have waged a legal battle in court.

Over the years, Dr. Luke has helped produce hits for other artists including Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus.
