After settling multiple lawsuits with Dr. Luke that spanned nearly ten years, Kesha is parting ways with the producer and his label, Kemosabe. Here’s the latest.

The drawn-out lawsuits have played out over the last decade, finally drawing to a conclusion in June 2023. Now a report from Variety suggests Kesha’s entire relationship with Dr. Luke’s label Kemosabe ended last week, seven months after the release of her last contractual album.

“jack Rovner confirms, after 16 years, Kesha and Vector Management have agreed amicably to part ways, with much love and respect,” her manager also confirmed in a statement made to Variety.

“My manager has been an unwavering supporter of helping me get through the lengthy legal battle I have been embroiled in for almost a decade,” the singer commented. “We have achieved many great successes and have shared a magnificent part of my life with me. I am so grateful to them and always will be. In need of a fresh start in my life, we have parted ways but I will remain forever grateful for the run we had.”

The pop-star settled her long-standing legal battle with Dr. Luke after her accusation that he drugged and raped her. He alleges she made up the allegations to defame him. After the suit was settled, Kesha commented, “only God knows what happened that night.” No terms of the settlement were disclosed, but both parties revealed they agreed to the resolution of the case.

The not-so-quick settlement averted the case going to trial this summer over the allegations. Several music industry professionals gave sworn testimony or statements releated to the case including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, P!nk, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine, and Taio Cruz.

Kesha made a name for herself in 2009 with her hit, “TiK ToK,” which recently hit the one billion streams threshold on Spotify. That hit was produced by Dr. Luke.
