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.
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.
