Anonymous sources have told The Wrap that Sony Music is expected to end its relationship with the controversial and influential producer Dr. Luke. The label has faced sharp criticism after Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald, was accused of sexually abusing pop star Kesha.
Kesha had gone to court to try to be released from Sony's contract that had her working with Dr. Luke and was denied, sparking outcry from the public as well as fellow musicians such as Lady Gaga and Adele.
"The fact that this hasn't already been taken care of is confusing," said one Sony insider of Dr. Luke's possibly impending exit. Jeva Lange
