Dr. Luke 'wants Lady Gaga to sit for deposition and release text messages' for his Kesha defamation case

 Dr. Luke has filed paperwork to have Lady Gaga deposed.

The music producer subpoenaed the singer testify in court instead of her sending a written statement, according to TMZ.

The website reports that he wants to see the unredacted texts between Lady Gaga and Kesha about him.

The text messages allegedly are of Kesha asking Lady Gaga to join in on a 'smear campaign against' Dr. Luke.

He is in the midst of suing Kesha; he claims that the singer falsely accused him of raping her after drugging her.

He also claims the messages show Kesha asking Gaga to 'urge' Sony Music to part ways with him.

Dr. Luke says she told Gaga to promote the hashtag of Free Kesha on social media.  

His lawyers previously subpoenaed a copy of the exchange but the one they obtained was heavily redacted. 

Page Six spoke to his lawyer, Jeffrey Movit, who said the messages were 'heavily redacted' and 'one of the four pages was redacted in its entirety.'

He also told Page Six that Lady Gaga has 'refused to remove' them because the redacted texts are 'private matters.'

Dr. Luke has asked for Gaga to be deposed since March of this year. 

His lawyer added that Lady Gaga had said she's unavailable, due to her busy touring and acting schedule. 

TMZ says Dr. Luke wants Lady Gaga have a 'face-to-face' with his lawyers for only up to three hours. 

In 2015, Kesha sued Dr. Luke for allegedly giving her date rape drugs and assaulting her.
