Ke$ha Sued By Ex-Managers

Garbage-chic pop star Ke$ha has been slapped with a $14 million lawsuit by her former managers, who claim the “Tik Tok” star squeezed them out of her career under pressure from her songwriter, Dr Luke.

DAS Communications sued Kesha and Dr. Luke in Manhattan Federal Court on Wednesday. Bosses at the firm claim the singer signed a contract in 2006 agreeing to pay their New York-based company 20 percent of her earnings if they secured her a big music deal. Per the agreement, Ke$ha could end relationship if she didn’t get a major label record deal in a year.

The managers struggled to fulfil their side of the deal but Ke$ha reportedly dismissed the deadline and continued to work with DAS. In 2008, executives set up a deal with Warner Bros. Records but Ke$ha’s songwriter/producer pal Dr. Luke allegedly halted the negotiations and “induced, intimidated and convinced” the singer to fire DAS as her representatives in September that year.

Luke produced her successful debut album, Animal, released in January.

Kesha’s lawyer, Charles Ortner, says the singer simply exercised her right to exit the contract DAS. According to Ortner, the firm had nothing to do with her eventual record deal with RCA/Jive.

As I’ve always said, the BIG difference between being rich and poor is when you’re rich, you get sued more. It’s exponential.

babygirl, you’re a dumb ass. K$ really doesnt give a damn because she knows nothing will come of the lawsuit. She’s lived without money as well as with it, she just cares about living and having a positive attitude about it. Money comes and money goes. WHO CARES???
