By

Last week, a New York judge dismissed a defamation countersuit filed by producer Lukas Gottwald, aka Dr Luke, against pop singer Kesha and her mother, Patricia “Pebe” Sebert. This is only one of several legal skirmishes on the horizon for Kesha; the real battle happens later this month, when the 28-year-old will finally seek freedom from a longstanding contract with Gottwald. Unless she makes legal headway, Kesha won’t be able to record with anyone but him.
