"A list songwriters and producers are reluctant to give Kesha their songs because of her weight."

In what feels like an endless legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke, a new development comes to light today with newly released emails from Kesha's camp.

Since the beginning, Kesha has claimed Dr. Luke abused her emotionally and sexually throughout their working relationship. In emails acquired by the New York Post between Kesha, her manager Monica Cornia and Dr. Luke, we see Dr. Luke policed her diet, and didn't give a "shit" what she wanted.

"Nobody was calling anybody out," Dr. Luke emailed with Cornia in 2012 after she claimed he was being insensitive about Kesha's eating disorder. "We were having a discussion on how she can be more disciplined with her diet. There have been many times we have all witnessed her breaking her diet plan. this perticular [sic] time--it happened to be diet coke and turkey, while on an all juice fast."

He also added, "A list songwriters and producers are reluctant to give Kesha their songs because of her weight."

Regarding one of Kesha's hit singles, "Crazy Kids," Cornia says Dr. Luke wanted the phrase, "You see us in the club sip sippin bub," but Kesha preferred, "You see us in the streets we da we da freaks," because she doesn't go to clubs in real life. Dr. Luke's response was, "I don't give a s-t what you want. If you were smart you would go in and sing it."

These emails come to life because Kesha is asking the Court to reconsider their decision to not allow her to walk away from her exclusive contract with SONY and Dr. Luke. The two parties are scheduled to have a conference call with the Judge this week.
