Ke$ha's Mom Confirms The Singer Is Struggling for Independence from Dr. Luke

(Getty Images)Several weeks ago, a petition to "free" Ke$ha from established hitmaker Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald began making the rounds on the Internet, with fans insisting that the producer is keeping the Nashville-bred singer-songwriter from exerting any creative control over her career. In an interview with Rolling Stone last week, Ke$ha didn't exactly deny that her relationship with the producer was problematic, saying only, "I feel lie my fans are really protective of me. They just want to see me grow as an artist, which I agree with."

Now, Ke$ha's mother has opened up about the singer's career woes, admitting in a now-deleted tweet that Dr. Luke is the figure curbing her daughter's freedom. Pebe Sebert, also a songwriter, told a fan that she hopes Ke$ha is dropped from her label before tweeting, "I Love you animals! Thank you for protecting my baby girl! She loves all of you! She is one of you! Help street dogs!"

Meanwhile, a number previously unreleased Ke$ha songs have leaked onto the Internet, presumably as part of the movement to wrest creative control for the performer. Check them out here.
