Ke$ha Sued By Former Management For $14 Million
DAS have claimed producer Dr. Luke convinced her to breach contract...
Ke$ha is being sued by her former management company for $14 million for an apparent "breach of contract."
According to our US Team, DAS Communications claim that the Tik Tok hitmaker "unceremoniously terminated" her contract, stating producer Dr. Luke "interfered" with the process by then signing the 23-year old to his record label.
Ken Freundlich, who is representing DAS in the case confirmed: "DAS was Ke$ha's manager since the beginning of 2006, and there was a written agreement, and they worked closely, and sometime in September 2008 [producer] Dr. Luke, for his own personal gain, somehow induced her to breach that contract."
"And she unceremoniously terminated DAS without justification and then ended up with Luke, basically. So we sued Ke$ha for breach of contract and Luke for interference, and that was last year, and the defense's reaction was to try and delay us. They made motions."
He continued: "The judge denied all their motions, and now we're going forward. We're going to have our day in court," he continued. "And we're going to prove that Dr. Luke induced her to breach the contract. She had no right to do so, and we're gonna get damages from her."
When quizzed how he and his team came up with the $14million figure, Freundlich explained: "We don't know exactly how much, but we assume it's in that range. She's been quite successful. The case is set. It's gonna go on the rest of this year. We're gonna go straight to the trial if we have to."
Ke$ha, who looks set to top the UK singles chart with new track We R Who We R this week, is said to have filed her own against the management team, but Freundlich is sure that it will be dismissed as they acted as an "illegal talent agent."
He added: "That's pending out in California. Even though that case is still pending, I don't think it has any merit."
Ke$ha's legal team and representatives are yet to comment on the lawsuit suit.
