Lady Gaga Subpoenaed Over Dr. Luke's Defamation Lawsuit Against Kesha

As evidence, Kesha's legal team brought to the court text messages exchanged between Kesha and Lady Gaga, a vocal supporter of hers.

She may not be the only celebrity taking the stand in the near future: "In connection with Dr. Luke's defamation claims against Kesha, various third parties are being deposed by both sides, including celebrities", his lawyers confirmed in the statement.

Dr. Luke filed docs demanding Gaga firm up a date when she will sit for the depo.

It will be her first full-length release since her long-running legal battle with former producer Dr. Luke.

While Luke has denied all the accusations and filed a defamation suit against her, Kesha filed a separate sexual assault lawsuit against him in 2016, the same year her mother, Pebe Sebert, was sued by Luke for defamation.

As the suits between Kesha and Dr. Luke heated up female celebrities including Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, and Gaga all expressed support for Kesha, although Gaga was the most outspoken. Although, this summer, she's back with Rainbow (due out August 11) her first collection of new music in five years, and the single "Praying", from the upcoming album is already a bona fide hit. Dr. Luke countersued shortly after.

There is also the issue of Lady Gaga's testimony. In the docs, Luke says she tried to offer up a written statement instead. but he says that's not good enough.

A statement from Lady Gaga's representative to PEOPLE said: "As Lady Gaga's legal team will present to the court, she has provided all of the relevant information in her possession and is at most an ancillary witness in this process". TMZ reportedthat Gottwald is claiming it had been heavily redacted, and is reportedly trying to obtain an un-redacted version and ensure that Gaga appears in court.

He also told Page Six that Lady Gaga has "refused to remove" them because the redacted texts are 'private matters'.

Earlier this year, Lady Gaga did respond to a subpoena asking her to hand over the text messages and she responded.

The star had remained silent after these new revelations, Dr. Luke today requires her to testify in the face of his lawyers.
