“Did Dr. Luke ever rape you?” an attorney asked.
“No,” Perry replied.
“Did Dr. Luke ever sexually assault you?”
“Did he ever give you a roofie?”
“Did you have a sexual relationship with Dr. Luke at all?”
“A romantic relationship?”
According to the suit, Kesha sent a text message to Lady Gaga in February 2016 in which she claimed that Dr. Luke had raped Perry. A separate deposition of Lady Gaga was also partially released on Monday, in which she discussed hearing the rumor from John Janick, the CEO
“He said something like, ‘I heard he raped Katy, too,'” Lady Gaga testified.
In her deposition, Perry said she has heard of Janick, but does not know him and never made any sort of sexual allegation to him about Dr. Luke.
“I couldn’t pick him out of a crowd,” Perry testified.
Janick issued his own statement on Monday, following the release of the transcript excerpts.
“As his deposition makes clear, John Janick was simply a bystander to a conversation; not a participant in it. Although John is not a party to this litigation, he voluntarily provided factual responses to questions from both sides’ attorneys,” the statement read.
