Here we go. As if the battle between Dr. Luke and Kesha hasn’t been ugly enough, Lady Gaga is now being dragged into this mess. What a nightmare!

It’s a weird situation because Dr. Luke claims they’ve been reaching out to Lady Gaga for a deposition but that she has refused the requests so far. According to the producer’s attorney’s, “Dr. Luke’s counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha. This motion has become necessary because Dr. Luke’s counsel has not been able to obtain, despite repeated request, a deposition date from Lady Gaga.”

Meanwhile, Gaga’s camp has a very reasonable, understandable explanation along with an accusation of their own. “As Lady Gaga’s legal team will present to the court, she has provided all of the relevant information in her possession and is at most an ancillary witness in this process,” a rep for the singer told The Hollywood Reporter. ”Dr. Luke’s team is attempting to manipulate the truth and draw press attention to their case by exaggerating Lady Gaga’s role and falsely accusing her of dodging reasonable requests.”

It does seem a little inflammatory for Dr. Luke’s team to put Gaga on blast so publicly, right?

In case you aren’t fully caught up, this is all part of the defamation lawsuit Dr. Luke brought against Kesha after she petitioned a court to release her from her recording obligations connected to him. She claims that he sexually assaulted her.

Adding to the mystery is the fact that Kesha sent a text to Gaga sometime in 2016 and it has since been received and sealed by the judge presiding over the case.
