POP STAR KESHA appeared in a New York City courtroom today in the latest chapter of her long-running legal dispute with the music producer Dr. Luke.

The singer says she’s fighting to wrest her career away from the hit-maker, whose full name is Lukasz Gottwald.

Kesha has claimed that Gottwald drugged, sexually abused and psychologically tormented her.

He says the singer made up that story in an attempt to ruin his reputation to try to weasel out of her recording contract.

But that’s far from the end of the dispute, which has sprawled to courts in three states.
