Kesha's Lawyer Claims Dr. Luke Raped Lady Gaga, Luke's & Gaga's Reps Strongly Deny Allegations
After Lady Gaga revealed Tuesday that she was raped by a record producer early in her career, Kesha's attorney Mark Geragos made claims online that rapist was none other than Dr. Luke, with whom his client is currently amidst a legal suit. But now both Luke and Gaga's reps claiming this accusation is absolutely false.
After Gaga spoke about her experience on The Howard Stern Show, Geragos then tweeted, "Guess who the rapists was?" with a link to a story on the singer's revelation.
When asked if he was "insinuating someone that Kesha fans would know of" he responded "#ohyes" and then "#namethepervert" later.
Soon, someone Tweeted at him, "Lukasz," as in Lukasz Gottwald, Dr. Luke's real name. To which Geragos responded, "#bingo."

Dr. Luke's camp responded with a statement via TMZ, saying, "Mark Geragos' statement is completely false and defamatory. 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."
And Gaga's publicist is also calling slamming Geragos, saying this is untrue, telling 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 Geragos told TMZ, "I said it because it's true," and has so far kept his comments up.
Billboard has reached out to Geragos rep for comment.
