Lady Gaga and Katy Perry have put the past behind them and are all about empowerment and supporting each other.

The powerhouse artists took to social media to send each other love after legal documents from the courthouse battle between Dr. Luke and Kesha were leaked.

In the leaked messages, the following exchange by Kesha and Lade Gaga was made public (the conversation happened after Kesha and Katy Perry came to a disagreement because Katy refused to speak out in support of Kesha in court – and denied that she was raped by him, like Kesha was) —

After Kesha says she “was crying a lot today and needed my mom. I’m really upset with Katy Perry,”, Lady Gaga responded by saying:

“She is probably really afraid to lose everything. U are really strong standing up to him, she’s not as strong as u yet.”

Kesha replies with:

“your [sic] right. I need to find sympathy and empathy for her. she’s so mean. it’s hard.”

Lady Gaga then says:

“Do u want me to see if I can talk to her. I know she’s mean… She makes me angry about s— [but] I just try to have empathy for her.”

In her deposition last year, Katy responded to the claims:

“They think I was raped and I was not.”

She has opted to stay neutral throughout the case:

“People were generally very angry at me for not saying anything… I want to stay out of it because I know them both [Kesha and Dr. Luke] and I empathize with both of them. The only two people that know what really went on are those two people.”


On Friday (November 30), Lady Gaga wrote a strong message voicing her love for Katy:


And Katy responded with love for Lady Gaga:

“Love you too friend. Onward and upward.”


A spokesperson for Lady Gaga also released a statement on Friday:

“These text messages paint a picture of one friend trying to help another through an extraordinary difficult time. They are several years old and in no way reflect Lady Gaga’s relationship with Katy Perry. These are private texts that — along with personal information from other high-profile individuals — have been publicly filed to generate media attention for this case.”
