Kesha Releases Emails That Make Producer Dr. Luke Look Like A Real A-hole

Kesha has released a batch of emails between her, her manager Monica Cornia, and Gottwald that—to put it mildly—make him look like a real a-hole.
As reported by Page Six, most of the emails seem to revolve around Gottwald criticizing Kesha’s weight, like one where he has “a discussion” about seeing her break an “all-juice fast” by drinking a Diet Coke and eating turkey. He also suggests that “A-list songwriters and producers” didn’t want to work with her “because of her weight.”
In another exchange, Kesha suggested changing a line in her song “Crazy Kids” from “You see us in the club sip-sippin’ bub” to “You see us in the streets we da we da freaks” because she doesn’t go to clubs, but Gottwald responded, “I don’t give a *Explicit* what you want. If you were smart you would go in and sing it.” Kesha supposedly tried to work this out with Gottwald in the studio, but she “didn’t feel comfortable talking to him.”
Kesha released these emails in an attempt to get a judge to reconsider ruling that she couldn’t simply walk away from her contract last year, and the two parties are scheduled to talk to a judge next week.
Gottwald’s team has now responded to Kesha, but he has not accused her of criticizing his weight yet. Instead, the statement says that she is the one who was concerned about her weight, and Gottwald was only showing “tremendous support” by helping with her “artistic and personal issues.”
