Kesha Wants to Shield Her Talks With PR Firm From Dr. Luke
publish date: 2017-10-31
The pop star argues that Sunshine Sachs is "an arm" of her legal team and that communications with the firm are privileged.
It's not a topic that comes up often, but the legal battle between Kesha Rose Sebert and Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwalt is exploring the line between legal advice and public relations advice. It's a consequential one, and new court papers even have a Bill O'Reilly cameo.
After being accused of raping Kesha, Dr. Luke continues to hunt for documents to support his defamation claim against the pop star. He is now demanding Kesha's communications with Sunshine Sachs, a powerhouse PR firm that represents a number of stars in the entertainment industry.
According to Dr. Luke's lawyers, "Sebert indeed hired her PR Agents to orchestrate and execute Sebert's intentional press strategy and campaign against Gottwald in order to widely and publicly spread her defamatory statements about him."
