It looks like Kesha and Dr. Luke are battling it out.

The "Blow" singer filed a shocking civil complaint in Los Angeles Tuesday that claimed the producer sexually, physically and verbally abused her for over 10 years after signing her as an artist at 18, according to CNN.

Hours later, Dr. Luke filed a lawsuit against Kesha, alleging that she made up "outrageous and untrue statements" to extort him into releasing her from her recording contract with his label.

Kesha was an "intelligent, family-oriented, and joyful young woman [before Dr. Luke] showered her with promises of fame and fortune" and convinced her to sign a contract with him in 2005, her lawsuit reportedly said.

Dance DominationIt also accuses Dr. Luke of giving her a "date rape drug," which he supposedly used to sexually assault her while she was unconscious. The lawsuit also alleges that he constantly verbally insulted her calling her "a fat f**king refrigerator" and other things to "make her feel completely worthless" so he could "maintain complete control over her life." It was because of that criticism, the suit alleges, that Kesha developed bulimia.

Dr. Luke's lawyer, Christina Lepera, said Kesha's complaint is "nothing more than a continuation of her bad and offensive acts."

"As set forth in the complaint that we have filed on behalf of Dr. Luke, Kesha and her mother are engaged in a campaign of publishing outrageous and untrue statements about Dr. Luke to third parties, including scurrilous and false statements of purported physical and mental abuse of Kesha," she added.

Kesha is seeking damages for the alleged suffering Dr. Luke caused and is also asking that her contract with his label be declared void.
