Dr. Luke's 2014 lawsuit against Kesha's mom, Pebe Sebert, for defamation has been dismissed by a New York judge, according to Business Insider. Kesha's mom shared the news on Twitter, adding, "Truth is powerful stuff!!" Luke's lawsuit against Kesha's manager, Jack Rovner, has also been dismissed. In his suits, Luke alleged that Kesha's mom was trying to extort him and had forced her to break contract with his label. He also claimed Rovner hated him and was trying to gain more money and control over Kesha's career.
The dismissal arrives only days after Sebert took to Twitter alleging that the producer tried to blackmail her into taking her name off the writing credits of "Timber." The news today is a small victory for the singer who has been locked in a lengthy legal battle with her former producer since 2014 after claiming that he had sexually assaulted her. Kesha's long-awaited hearing with Dr. Luke is scheduled for Feb. 19.
