In the ongoing case of Kesha vs. her alleged abuser Dr. Luke, the producer's sister, Vezna Gottwald, has spoken out to show support for her brother. She's directed her criticism at the entire situation, but also at many of the celebrities who've shown their support for the "TiK ToK" singer. She reportedly told the Daily Mail:

"What happened to anyone having integrity and trying to find the truth?"

"It's incredible that anybody can just slander somebody who is a good man and they know nothing about."

"It is so difficult for him to fight back when all of these huge stars like Adele and Taylor Swift are coming out in support of her and it really is affecting all of our family."

"It's like the Salem witch trials, but we know who the real witch is behind all this...If this was a Disney story that my son was watching she [Kesha] would be the evil Cruella."

She continues:

"'He has had to hire a crisis manager and he has not been able to go out of his own home."

"I have a four-year-old and Luke has got a four-year-old and a three-year-old and it is like the children are going to have to grow up with this hanging over us."

"This is the one time I am grateful our father died, that he does not have to go through it, because it is horrific and I am grateful that he is not around."

"It's a stigma that's so hard to shake off even when it is not true."
