Kesha is no longer on Dr. Luke’s label, Kemosabe Records

This year, Kesha released her fifth studio album, the experimental and surprising ‘Gag Order’. Released under the umbrella of Kemosabe Records, Dr. Luke’s label, a subsidiary of Sony Music, ‘Gag Order’ was the last project that contractually linked Kesha Rose to the producer whom she has accused of sexual and psychological abuse.

The contract finally ended last week, a source confirms to Variety, indicating that Kesha’s departure has been “amicable.” Kesha has worked with Kemosabe, RCA Records and Vector Management. Her separation from Dr. Luke is now a fact.

Last June, Kesha and Dr. Luke reached a legal settlement, ending a decade of accusations and counteraccusations. In a joint statement, Kesha wrote that “only God knows what happened that night,” and Dr. Luke said “I am sure nothing happened.”
