According to The Blast, Clarkson claims Dr. Luke lied to Clive Davis and tried to take sole credit for writing songs that she worked on. The information was taken from an unsealed testimony the pop star gave in Kesha’s legal battle with Dr. Luke back in 2017.
Here’s what The Blast is reporting:
“[Clarkson] details, “I was told by my label executive, it was a really rough meeting, Clive Davis, where first of all, he told me I was a shitty writer and that I shouldn’t — I should just shut up and listen to the producers. And then he said, and I said or he said something about hits. You should just take the hits and just sing them or something to that extent. And I said, well, I’m a writer on these. I mean, I wrote on ‘Miss Independent.’ I wrote on like ‘Hazel Eyes.’ I wrote ‘Because Of You’ myself. Like I wrote, like I’m like, and then he proceeded to say that I did not.”
Clarkson continued, “Well, he told me I was lying. That Dr. Luke told him that he had written ‘Hazel Eyes.’ And I was like, I’m pretty sure I went through a real sh*tty relationship.”
Her testimony seems to be in defense of Kesha. While many high profile pop stars such as Katy Perry have chosen to remain relatively silent about Dr. Luke’s alleged crimes, Clarkson was honest about his allegedly questionable character.
