Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald is asking a court to help depose Lady Gaga for an ongoing defamation suit against his former artist Kesha.
Attorneys for Dr. Luke filed a motion this weekend to interview Gaga in person, a matter the “American Horror Story” star has been avoiding, his team said.
“In connection with Dr. Luke’s defamation claims against Kesha, various third parties are being deposed by both sides, including celebrities. Dr. Luke’s counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha,” a spokesperson for Luke said on Saturday.
“His motion has become necessary because Dr. Luke’s counsel has not been able to obtain, despite repeated request, a deposition date from Lady Gaga,” the statement concluded.
The deposition will specifically cover an exchange between Gaga and Kesha via text message, TMZ reported.
