The Fame Monster is in attack mode when it comes to defending Kesha Kesha’s sexual abuse allegations against music producer Dr. Luke who has damaged his reputation.
Lady Gaga is trying to “Make the Industry Great Again” without sexual abusers in music like Dr. Luke. Read on to get the details on Lady Gaga fiery exchange with Dr. Luke’s lawyer Christine Lepera
CelebNMusic247.com reports that Lady Gaga skewers Dr. Luke’s lawyer in a newly unsealed deposition during a fiery exchange over how Kesha’s sexual abuse allegations.
Lady Gaga shot back to attorney Christine Lepera, saying:
How about all of the women that are accused of being liars and how she was slut shamed in front of the world, how about that?
Lepera had asked if Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, was aware of Luke’s “bruised” reputation after Kesha sued him in 2014. Following the question, Gaga’s attorney explained that Kesha’s claims had triggered his client’s memories of being raped at age 19.
Gaga’s attorney, Orin Snyder, said at the start of her September 2017 deposition that was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court this week.
Ms. Germanotta has experienced in the past few hours some PTSD reactions, which is causing some trauma and emotional reactivity. So she is crying now, the record will reflect.
That doesn’t mean she is unable to testify truthfully and competently.
Gaga said she believed Kesha’s claims against Luke because she had once seen the “Tik Tok” singer on the producer’s bed in his home studio.
If you are asking what my view is of his reputation, I made my view of him and his reputation when I saw her in that back room. That was an image that — of something that happened to me, and I felt and knew in my heart that she was telling the truth, and I believe her.
Gaga asked Lepera, a woman who is defending a man accused of sexual abuse? Does Lepera know how this reflects on her during the #MeToo Movement?
The “A Star Is Born” star said:
Do you know what it’s like for survivors? Don’t roll your eyes at me. You should be ashamed of yourself?
Dr. Luke’s attorney, Lepera told The Post:
Being passionate generally about a topic that concerns us all is admirable, but Gaga has no knowledge of what happened that night because she was not there.
