Update (10/14 at 4:30pm): According to Rolling Stone, a New York court has sided with Kesha and ruled to keep her medical/personal records private. The decision was made in order to "insulate her from unnecessary embarrassment and to protect her medical providers from the press and the media."

Original Story (10/11): Dr. Luke has responded to Kesha's recent protective order where she asked a Manhattan judge not to let "her most sensitive medical records including gynecological, psychiatric, and rehabilitation records going back more than ten years" become public. 

The singer is claiming the producer, a.k.a. Lukasz Gottwald, whom she's been battling in court for months, is trying to release her personal information. “Because Kesha made public accusations and in the case that she was allegedly harmed by Dr. Luke, the Court ordered her to produce her medical records," his lawyer Christine Lepra told PEOPLE. "Now, Kesha wants to hide her records, while continuing to make self-serving, selective and misleading statements to hurt my clients publicly.”

On Monday, Kesha's attorney James Pearl wrote in a motion to Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Shirley Werner Kornreich: “Ms. Sebert now fears that Gottwald will seek to disclose and disseminate her personal medical records in an attempt to embarrass and harass her." The statement continues (via Billboard):

"[Kesha] has disclosed highly sensitive personal medical records as part of this litigation, and her position as a world-renowned recording artist in whom there is great public interest renders any potential disclosure of those records potentially harmful to her personal and economic interests."

Back in August, the singer decided to dismiss legal action in California against Dr. Luke. But she is still continuing her appeal in New York. Kesha remains on a plight to release a new album, and even went on a summer tour that featured new songs.
