Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are continuing to find each other in the middle of the ongoing fight between Dr. Luke and Kesha, following Kesha’s claims that Dr. Luke had been abusing her, claims corroborated by both Perry, Gaga, and even women like Pink and Kelly Clarkson.
This past week, court documents revealed there was a text message exchange between Kesha and Lady Gaga from two years ago where both women spoke of Perry’s refusal to become publicly involved in her assault case with the former Sony producer.
The allegations against Dr. Luke first came out a few years ago, and he has vehemently denied all of them. Kesha also said in the past that the 45-year-old music producer raped Katy Perry, a claim which Katy subsequently denied, and in a court of law, no less.
Kesha spoke with Lady Gaga through SMS and said she was unhappy because Katy Perry could easily provide testimony and put Dr. Luke’s arguments seriously in peril for Kesha’s benefit.
Love you too friend ❤️ Onward and upward ?❤️? https://t.co/tYl4ueBjB5

When the messages finally surfaced in the headlines, Lady Gaga went on Twitter and said the exchange between her and Kesha was very old.
Lady Gaga wrote, “we’ve matured, gotten over the past, love each other, and share deep respect” for one another. Speaking with Yahoo Entertainment, the star’s rep went on to say that the “text messages painted a picture of” someone who was trying to help a friend through a challenging time.
As it was previously reported, the messages first came out after The Blast obtained documents from Perry’s 2017 testimony. The pop star said she felt pressured to support the pop-star, but the ex-Sony producer never raped her at any point.
“People were generally very angry at me for not saying anything,” the “Firework,” singer said in the documents, before going on to explain her beliefs as not only a women’s advocate but also an advocate for the rights of due process and justice.
Katy said she believed in the rights of the accused to get their day in a court of law, as the American constitution grants every citizen.
