Kesha files protective order against Dr. Luke

Kesha has filed a protective order against Dr. Luke to keep her personal medical records confidential.

The 29-year-old singer - who is involved in an ongoing legal battle with the record producer - is said to have filed the order to ensure "her personal medical records, any diagnoses, or the names of any of her medical providers" remain private.

According to the legal papers, which were filed on Monday (10.10.16) and obtained by E!, Kesha's lawyer James Pearl has insisted more than 900 pages of her records, "including gynecological, psychiatric, and rehabilitation records going back more than 10 years", have been provided to the court.

But Dr. Luke - who Kesha has accused of sexual assault - is said to have rejected the protective order request.

The documents state: "Her position as a world-renowned recording artist in whom there is great public interest renders any potential disclosure of those records potentially harmful to her personal and economic interests."

Luke's lawyer Christine Lepra also insists Kesha should disclose her medical records because the 'Tik Tok' hitmaker made "public accusations" against her client.

She told PEOPLE: "Because Kesha made public accusations and in the case that she was allegedly harmed by Dr. Luke, the Court ordered her to produce her medical records.

"Now, Kesha wants to hide her records, while continuing to make self-serving, selective and misleading statements to hurt my clients publicly."

Kesha originally filed legal documents seeking to have her contract with the producer dissolved after accusing him of sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abusing her for almost a decade.

In response to her lawsuit, which was filed in October 2014, Luke filed a counter-suit against the 'Die Young' singer, accusing her of defamation.

Kesha is contractually bound to make three more albums with Dr. Luke and his Kemosabe Records label, which is owned by Sony, and can't record any more music until she is released from it.
