Oh hell to the no!

Sony finally offered Kesha the freedom from her contract she so badly wants, but they had one condition—she needs to apologize to Dr. Luke for accusing him of rape.

The 29-year-old pop star says that price is just way too high.

Wendy Williams Blames Kesha For Not Recording Sexual Abuse

As Popdust previously reported, in 2014, Kesha sued the music producer for sexual assault and battery and wants to nullify her recording contracts with him.

Dr. Luke filed a countersuit, in which he called Kesha's allegations "defamatory."

He claimed he "didn't rape Kesha" and vowed that he had “never had sex” with her.

On Sunday, Kesha posted a despondent looking photo of herself on Instagram—she captioned it:

So. I got offered my freedom IF i were to lie.

I would have to APOLOGIZE publicly and say that I never got raped.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS behind closed doors. I will not take back the TRUTH. I would rather let the truth ruin my career than lie for a monster ever again.

A spokesperson for Dr. Luke fired back, in a statement to Rolling Stone:

Kesha's Instagram posting is false. The Court repeatedly stated Kesha is already free to record without Dr. Luke, and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims.

That's because all the evidence—including Kesha's own videotaped sworn testimony—show her allegations are false.

The only thing Kesha is not free to do is to continue to lie about Dr. Luke through publicity stunts and outrageous smears, ignoring the fact that by her own free will she went to work and entered new contracts with Dr. Luke years after this 'incident' supposedly happened.

Her goal all along has been solely personal enrichment by seeking to break contracts that brought her success and millions so she can enter into more lucrative ones. We look forward to our day in court holding Kesha accountable for her lies.

In February, a judge denied Kesha's request for a preliminary injunction that would have let her make music without Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald.

Kesha Shades Dr. Luke? ‘You Will NEVER Own Me!’

She filed an appeal about two weeks ago—in it, her lawyers stated:

The Court erred in basing its decision on its finding that Kesha could record without interference from Gottwald.

Although it recognized that "slavery was done away with a long time ago" and that ‘you can't force someone to a situation in which they don't want to work,' the Court's ruling requiring Kesha to work for Gottwald's companies, purportedly without his involvement, does just that.

As the Court itself recognized, ‘It's slavery’.. You can't do that.

Yep. Damn straight.
