Kesha allegedly offered ‘freedom’

Kesha has provided further information regarding her current legal battle with producer “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, whom has been accused of sexual assault and battery.

According to Huffington Post, the singer claims in an Instagram post that she was offered her freedom for a public retraction of her allegations against Gottwald.

The post reads, “So. I got offered my freedom if I were to lie. I would have to apologize publicly and say that I never got raped. This is what happens behind closed doors. I will not take back the truth. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.”

In February, Kesha was denied release from her Sony contract by a judge. Dr. Luke has maintained innocence throughout the lawsuit, Huffington Post reported.
