Music producer Dr Luke is responding to claims made by Kesha to Lady Gaga that he raped Katy Perry. He denies raping Perry, and says what he calls misinformation is defamation. 

In a response to Kesha's filing, Dr Luke filed his own response in the never ending legal battle with the singer.

Luke denies claims Kesha made to Lady Gaga that Dr. Luke 'raped Kathryn Hudson p/k/a/ Katy Perry.'

The documents, filed by Luke claim, according to The Blast, that 'On February 26, 2016 [Kesha] sent a text message to Stefani Germanotta p/k/a/ Lady Gaga which repeated [Kesha's] false claim that [Luke] had raped her.'

It continues, '[Kesha] also falsely asserted that [Luke] had also raped Kathryn Hudson p/k/a/ Katy Perry,' and that, 'Following this text message conversation, and with [Kesha's] encouragement, [Lady Gaga] spread negative messages about [Luke] in the press and on social media.'

Luke adds in the filing that Gaga went as far as to create 'graphics' to post on social media with the help of Kesha and referred to her claims of sexual assault by Luke.

Kesha accused music producer Dr Luke of raping Katy Perry in a text message she sent to Lady Gaga, new bombshell court documents reveal. 

The rape allegation was included in court documents filed in New York last month by Luke's lawyers in the ongoing defamation lawsuit between Kesha and the music producer.

In the documents, which were obtained by DailyMail.com and first reported by The Blast, Luke claims that Kesha told Lady Gaga that he raped her and Perry.

News of the text exchange between Kesha and Gaga was first made public in 2016 court documents but Perry was never named. 

The claim only went as far as saying another artist had allegedly been raped after a judge sealed the contents of the text.

Luke, whose real name is Lukas Gottwald, has denied the previously heard allegations that he gave Kesha drugs and that he raped her.

While the claim that he allegedly raped the Roar singer has until now remained undisclosed, Luke also denied that allegation in the recent court papers. 

'On Feb. 26, 2016, (Kesha) sent a text message to Stefani Germanotta p/k/a Lady Gaga which repeated (Kesha's) false claim that Gottwald had raped her,' the court documents say.

'In this text message, (Kesha) also falsely asserted that Gottwald had also raped Kathryn Hudson p/k/a Katy Perry.

'Following this text message conversation, and with (Kesha's) encouragement, Ms Germanotta spread negative messages about Gottwald in the press and on social media. For example, in February 2016, Ms Germanotta posted multiple articles discussing defendant defamatory statements on her Twitter page.'

It goes on to say that Gaga created 'graphics' to post on social media with the help of Kesha acknowledging the claims of sexual assault.

'Subsequently, in March 2016, (Kesha) and Ms Germanotta coordinated to post graphics on their Twitter and Instagram pages (which were created by Ms Germanotta) that referred to (Kesha's) claims of sexual assault by Gottwald.'

The claim that Luke allegedly raped Katy Perry has until now remained undisclosed. While the text message between Kesha and Gaga had been mentioned publicly before, the contents of their conversation was not known

While the text message between Kesha and Gaga had been mentioned publicly before, it was not known exactly who they were talking about.

Perry has never publicly accused Luke of sexual misconduct. She has not worked professionally with him for several years. Speaking of their professional split in an interview with the New York Times last year, Perry only said: 'I had to leave the nest'.

Perry has been deposed as part of the lawsuit, but the court documents do not go into detail about what was said. 

Luke has been embroiled in a years-long lawsuit with Kesha after she claimed he sexually assaulted her. 

She first sued Luke in October 2014 alleging his abuse caused her to develop a severe eating disorder that required her to enter rehab. 

The music producer retaliated by suing the singer claiming she smeared his reputation with the rape allegations.

The producer has repeatedly denied all allegations of assault and has never been charged with crimes related to the case. 

Representatives for Perry and Gaga have not commented on the lawsuit.
