Lady Gaga Denies She Was Raped By Dr. Luke, Kesha's Lawyer Insists Otherwise

Mark Geragos stands by his allegations that the producer raped the pop star, even after both parties emphatically deny the claim.

After Gaga revealed on Howard Stern's radio show last week that she had been raped by a music producer 20 years her senior when she was 19, Geragos alleged publicly that Luke was the unnamed assailant.

On Tuesday, he went on Twitter asking followers to "guess who the rapist was," posting a link to Gaga's story.

He then started the hashtag "#namethepervert."


After someone guessed Dr. Luke, Geragos confirmed the charge, responding with another hashtag "#bingo."

Representatives for both Lady Gaga and Dr. Luke swiftly and vociferously denied Geragos' claim.

"Mark Geragos' statement is completely false and defamatory," Dr. Luke's reps told TMZ. "Luke met Lady Gaga twice for less than half an hour total in those two meetings combined. He has never been alone with her and never touched her. Neither meeting was in that time frame reported."

Gaga's team has also refuted the allegations. A publicist told E! News: "This ridiculous, manufactured link between Lady Gaga and the Kesha-Dr. Luke lawsuit is utterly incomprehensible. This simply isn't true and how dare someone take advantage of such a sensitive matter."

But Garagos is sticking by his guns, telling TMZ: "I said it because it's true." None of his tweets has been deleted.
