Lawyers for Kesha and music producer Dr. Luke locked horns Monday in competing letters to a Manhattan judge over whether Kesha’s psychiatric and medical records must be disclosed in a defamation suit the producer has filed against her.
Kesha, whose real name is Kesha Rose Sebert, has claimed that Lukasz (Dr. Luke) Gottwald, 42, raped her in 2005 and then abused her sexually, verbally, physically and emotionally for years afterward, forcing her to go to doctors in four states to set her straight.
Gottwald has denied the charges and sued Kesha, 29, for defamation and breach of contract.
In their letters, Gottwald’s lawyer Jeffrey Movit and Kesha’s attorney Alex Little clash over the extent to which — if at all — the singer’s medical files for the last decade should become part of the defamation suit.

As much as I want to see mental health records protected, where is the fairness to Dr. Luke?
