The former American Idol champ Kelly Clarkson took to twitter last month and indirectly showed her support for Kesha. Her tweet clearly indicated that she had nothing good to say about Dr. Luke.
She tweeted: ?Trying 2 not say anything since I can?t say anything nice about a person?so this is me not talking about Dr. Luke.?

However, the singer finally opened up when she spoke in an interview with Australian radio station KIIS FM and claimed that her label ‘blackmailed’ her Into working with the 42-year-old, according to Daily Mail.
?I only worked with him because literally I got blackmailed by my label,? Clarkson said. ?They were like, ?We will not put your album out if you don?t do this.??
Clarkson had worked with Dr. Luke on her hit single Since U Been Gone that came out in 2004 and Behind These Hazel Eyes, that was released in early 2005.
Kelly Clarkson said that she was forced to work with Dr. Luke and said, ?’Musically it’s been really hard for me because he will just lie to people and it makes the artist look bad.?
The singer told that she was not in a position to comment on Kesha?s case (who accused Luke of raping and abusing her) as she didn?t have any ?first hand? information. ?I can remark on his character,? she said. She also claimed that it was ?difficult to work with, he’s kind of demeaning.?
Recently, Dr. Luke was in the news when Kesha was trying to get out of her contract with his Kemosabe Records that is owned by Sony Music. She claimed that the producer abused her sexually, physically as well as emotionally over years. Despite losing her court battle against Dr. Luke, Kesha received immense support and love from some of the music?s biggest celebrities including Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande and Kelly Clarkson.
However, Clarkson was of the opinion that her case was quite very different from Kesha. She clearly stated, ?He never did anything like that with me?If it?s true, I can?t imagine working with somebody who had done something like that.?
