We've entered year three of the nasty legal battle between Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald and Kesha. Now, Lady Gaga has just been (more heavily) implicated.

Last month it was reported that both Katy Perry and Lady Gaga had been roped into the legal nightmare over some text messages, the contents of which have been sealed (for courtroom consumption only). Now, Gaga is the subject of a new complaint from Gottwald's camp saying she was given misinformation from Kesha that lead to the further tarnishing of the producer's reputation.

The amended complaint alleges Kesha Rose Sebert sent Lady Gaga (Stefani Germanotta) texts last February saying that she "and another female recording artist... had both been raped by [Dr. Luke]."

You can get a divorce from an abusive spouse. You can dissolve a partnership if the relationship becomes irreconcilable. The same opportunity—to be liberated from the physical, emotional, and financial bondage of a destructive relationship—should be available to a recording artist.
— Kesha's legal team claims Dr. Luke holds a personal vendetta against their client.

The next scheduled court appearance will be Sebert's deposition, February 7th. Dr. Luke's deposition is set for Valentine's Day. Then, on February 21st the judge will host a telephone conference.
