Was Dr. Luke and Kesha's professional relationship ugly from the very beginning?
According DAS Management, Kesha's former management team, the singer was set to sign a recording contract with Warner Bros. Records in 2008 after attracting the attention of Kara DioGuardi. The deal fell through, with DAS claiming interference from Dr. Luke. The allegations of foul play were the basis of their 2009 lawsuit against Kesha and Dr. Luke.
Prior to the Warner Bros. deal, Kesha had little contact with Dr. Luke. She was working independently, writing songs for others and trying to land a record deal. Meanwhile, Dr. Luke was busy producing hits for Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, and Britney Spears. It wasn’t until Dr. Luke pulled her into the studio to sing the unpaid, uncredited hook on Flo Rida’s 2009 hit “Right Round” that they began to collaborate in earnest. Shortly after her Flo Rida session, Kesha signed a multi-album deal with RCA Records that was set up by Dr. Luke. Immediately they set to work on her debut album, Animal, which was released in 2010.
Their relationship publicly soured in 2012, after the release of Kesha's sophomore album Warrior, when she began complaining that she didn't have control over the direction of her career. Around the same time, her side project with Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne,Lip$ha, was mysteriously killed and Dr. Luke allegedly called Kesha a "refrigerator" on the set of a music video.
