Team Kesha has stepped things up a notch and leaked several damaging emails in the pop star's lengthy and tiresome effort to break away from her longtime collaborator/accused abuser Dr. Luke.
To catch you up to date, it's been more than a year since a Manhattan judge ruled that the pop star could not be released from her recording contract with Sony and Dr. Luke and it's been a messy war of "he said, she said" that doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon.
In the latest development via Page Six, emails expose the super-producer for his harsh ways, including one incident where he criticized the singer for breaking her diet as her manager Monica Cornia urges him to be more supportive of his collaborator.
"Nobody was calling anybody out," Dr. Luke writes to Cornia at 2:11 a.m. on June 28, 2012, according to a copy of the email.
"We were having a discussion on how she can be more disciplined with her diet. there have been many times we have all witnessed her breaking her diet plan. this perticular [sic] time — it happened to be diet coke and turkey while on an all juice fast,” the producer gripes.
Cornia asks him to be more supportive because she’s "a human and not a machine," then adds, "if she were a machine that would be way cool and we could do whatever we want."
Dr. Luke also reveals in an earlier message that "A list songwriters and producers are reluctant to give Kesha their songs because of her weight."
In another email, Luke and the singer seem to be engaged in creative differences over "Crazy Kids," one of her last official singles. Unfortunately, the producer didn't appear to be too phased by her disinterest in certain lyrics. "I don't give a s–t what you want. If you were smart you would go in and sing it," he reportedly told her at one point.
In a May 2012 email exchange between Cornia, Kesha and other managers, Cornia discusses a fight between the singer and her producer over lyrics for what would become her hot single “Crazy Kids.”
In one email, Cornia says Dr. Luke wanted the phrase, “You see us in the club sip sippin bub,” while Kesha preferred, “You see us in the streets we da we da freaks,” because she doesn’t go to clubs.
“I don’t give a s–t what you want. If you were smart you would go in and sing it,” Dr. Luke allegedly told Kesha, according to Cornia.
