Kesha Has Released Body-Shaming Emails Allegedly Sent by Dr. Luke

After a judge ruled a year ago that Kesha was legally bound to her recording contract with Dr. Luke, she's still fighting to be released.

The latest development in the seemingly endless Dr. Luke/Kesha battle involves leaked emails between the producer and Kesha's manager Monica Corni.

According to Page Six, one particular communication finds Gottwald criticizing Kesha for breaking a juice cleanse and drinking a Diet Coke; another suggests that "A-list songwriters and producers" aren't interested in working with her "because of her weight".

In an email dated June 28, 2012, Dr. Luke wrote, "We all get concerned when she is breaking her diet plan".

"Kesha's new proposed counterclaim simply repeats the meritless and untrue allegations that were set forth in her earlier pleadings and which Dr. Luke fully disputes". When Kesha first filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke for emotional, physical and sexual abuse, she claimed that Dr. Luke once told her she looked "like a f**king refrigerator". Please help keep her on her diet. Now, the newly-released emails show Dr. Luke's commenting on the singer's body.

These emails come to life because Kesha is asking the Court to reconsider their decision to not allow her to walk away from her exclusive contract with SONY and Dr. Luke.

"He refused to come downstairs ("she wears the trousers in MY house?") so we left", Cornia writes, again quoting Dr. Luke.

In a May 2012 email exchange between Cornia, Kesha and other managers, Cornia discusses a fight between the singer and her producer over lyrics for what would become her hot single "Crazy Kids".

"I don't give a sh*t what you want". In one song, Dr. Luke wanted Kesha to sing, "You see us in the club sip sippin bub", but Kesha, who does not go to clubs, wanted to sing, "You see us in the streets we da we da freaks" instead. Dr. Luke's legal team claims the excerpts are being taken out of context.

According to the report, both parties are scheduled to have a telephone conference with the judge sometime next week.
