His legal team is subpoenaing the same texts from Lady Gaga that Kesha used in her case as well.

Dr. Luke wants Lady Gaga to tell her part of the story in regards to his lawsuit against Kesha.

Last year, evidence of text exchanges between Gaga and Kesha were submitted to the courts as evidence, but the judge sealed the messages, making the content confidential.

In a statement from Luke's lawyers to Variety, "Dr. Luke's counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha".

"Skinny" Obamacare repeal still lacks votes to pass
Some Republican senators had been concerned that the House would simply pass McConnell's "skinny bill" and send it to Trump . To emphasize the point, he made a hand signal that read zero. "I regret that our efforts were not enough, this time".

Repeated requests for Lady Gaga to sit for a deposition have been met with responses from her own attorneys, describing a busy scheduled filled with acting schedules and concert dates. The logistics of her contract with Gottwald and Sony are still in contention, but the producer hasn't dropped his defamation suit against the artist. Furthermore, the producer argues that Gaga's public display of support for Kesha during her sexual assault case negatively affected his reputation.

Kesha gifted fans with an emotional comeback this year thanks to her single "Praying" and the touching video that accompanied it. Weeks later, her new hit "Woman" was dubbed a feminist anthem for summer playlists everywhere. Dr. Luke countersued shortly after.

In fact, Luke's lawyers already issued a subpoena for Gaga in March for an oral testimony in a deposition. TMZ reportedthat Gottwald is claiming it had been heavily redacted, and is reportedly trying to obtain an un-redacted version and ensure that Gaga appears in court.

In addition to Taylor Swift, who had given him $ 250,000, Kesha was once again able to count on Lady Gaga, who was hailed for his courage on Twitter after the verdict: "there are people who love you around the world. Somebody that has such a handsome light within them, so much talent to give - just to see that light burn out because they feel that no one's listening to them, I feel that it's my responsibility to stand up for her when there's a lot of people that are not listening to her plea for love, for people to have compassion and empathy".
