Kesha's ongoing legal battle against her former manager Dr. Luke has been a dark saga with no end in sight. And though no clear resolution is forthcoming for the singer, Sony Music has finally stepped up and done something about the situation; the company has officially begun to sever its ties with Dr. Luke.
As noted in The Hollywood Reporter, Luke has been stripped of his position as the head of Kemosabe Records under the Sony Music banner. Luke founded the imprint in 2011, but new legal documents make clear that "Lukasz Gottwald is no longer the CEO of Kemosabe Records and does not have authority to act on its behalf." He also has been removed from Sony Music's website entirely.
As of press time, none of the concerned parties have chosen to comment, but this step will no doubt play a crucial role in the continuing cases of both Kesha and Dr. Luke.
