After Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald issued a statement on Monday morning (Feb. 22) once again vehemently denying that he ever sexually assaulted Kesha, the pop producer took to Twitter hours later to spell it out for the thousands on social media who believe otherwise.

"It’s a shame that there’s so much speculation out there basing itself on so little information," Gottwald said. "I didn’t rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister."

On Friday (Feb. 19), a judge denied Kesha an injunction that would have allowed the pop star to record outside of her contract with Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Records and Sony. A protest formed by ardent Kesha fans formed outside of the Manhattan court, and Kesha sobbed through the court hearing.

"The only truly objective person who knows the facts is the judge. The judge did not rule in Kesha's favor on Friday," Luke commented on Twitter. Since the ruling, artists like Lorde, Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga have supported Kesha on Twitter, and Taylor Swift sent her $250,000 as "a show of support."
