Following the wave of numerous allegations of sexual abuse by Bill Cosby, more Hollywood celebrities are claiming to have been raped by their producers.
Lady Gaga shocked the music industry when she recently revealed to Howard Stern that she was raped by a record producer when she was 19 years old.
“I was a shell of my former self at one point,” Gaga told Stern and co-host Robin Quivers. “I didn’t tell anybody. I didn’t even tell myself for the longest time.”
While Gaga did not go into detail about who the alleged abuser was, Kesha claims she knows who the man is, because he also raped her.
Kesha alleges that she was drugged and raped by her music producer Lukasz Gottwald (Dr. Luke), and nearly died from his abuse. The “Die Young” singer claims that Dr. Luke not only raped her, but he also raped Lady Gaga.

This is not surprise. If you hang out with enough people in the entertainment industry, you’ll hear countless stories about rape and child sex rings. The issue was considered Taboo, specially because people in the industry for years have refused to speak out publicly about these crimes from fear of retaliation — until now.
