A decade ago, P!nk worked with producer Dr. Luke on three songs for her album I’m Not Dead; on Thursday (Oct. 5), she publicly declared she refuses to work with him ever again.
In an interview with The New York Times, the pop star says that while she has no firsthand knowledge of the many allegations of sexual abuse Kesha and her team have made against Luke, she knows from working with him that “he’s not a good person.”
“I know that regardless of whether or not Dr. Luke did that, this is his karma and he earned it,” the mother of two said. “He doesn’t do good business, he’s not a kind person, he doesn’t do the right thing when given ample opportunities to do so, and I don’t really feel that bad for him.”
P!nk’s comments come less than a month after Kelly Clarkson revealed in a Z100 interview that she refused to share a writing credit with Luke on her 2009 hit “My Life Would Suck Without You,” turning down the possibility of millions more in royalties to avoid being associated with someone she believed to be “not a good guy.” Luke declined to comment to the Times in response to P!nk’s interview, and has denied all of Kesha’s abuse allegations.
