After rumors surfaced today that Sony may be parting ways with its famed producer, Dr. Luke -- who has been embroiled in a legal battle with the singer Kesha -- an attorney for the Grammy nominee say it's "not true."
"Luke has an excellent relationship with Sony. His representatives are in regular contact with executives at the highest levels at Sony and this has never come up," his attorney said in a statement to ABC News.
Sony declined comment. The Wrap, citing unnamed sources, reported Sony was expected to end its working relationship with Dr. Luke.
The producer, who was born Lukasz Gottwald, was accused in a 2014 lawsuit of sexually abusing Kesha. Since then, the singer has been trying to free herself from her current contract. After Kesha's initial suit, Dr. Luke filed a counter-lawsuit against Kesha, her mother and her manager in 2014. The claims against Kesha's mother and manager have been dropped.
But last month, New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich denied a preliminary injunction that would have allowed Kesha, whose full name is Kesha Rose Sebert, out of her contract with Sony and Dr. Luke.
Kornreich also ruled that Kesha must remain in her six-record contract with Sony Music and Luke's label, a subsidiary of Sony, but that she does not have to record specifically with Luke. She did not rule yet on a motion to dismiss Kesha's lawsuit or a motion to dismiss Gottwald's counter-suit.
Dr. Luke took to Twitter later in February to proclaim his innocence.
"I didn't rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister," he tweeted. "Kesha and I made a lot of songs together and it was often good but there were creative differences at times. It's sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue."
