It all started over the weekend when the “Coconuts” hitmaker tweeted “get talented or good at anything then talk to me,” which appeared to be a shade to her haters.
One user immediately called her out, replying that she should stop defending Dr. Luke first as he has a lot of controversies in the music industry.

The pop star has since deleted her response, but many online users were able to screenshot the tweet and re-post it on the social media platform.

Dr. Luke’s controversy started when singer/songwriter Kesha accused him of sexual assault in 2014.
Kim Petras Cut Ties With Dr. Luke in Latest Single
In early reports, Kim Petras made a name for herself for releasing hit pop songs independently. In 2016, she moved to Los Angeles, California, to work on her music career full-time and she was signed under Prescription Songs, an imprint of Lukasz Gottwald, popularly known as Dr. Luke.
However, in her recent project, it appears that Petras has severed her ties with the embattled record producer as he wasn’t credited in the track.
In an interview with i-D Magazine, the “Can’t Do Better” songstress praised Republic Records co-president Wendy Goldstein for the latest era of her new music as she was the person who helped her write better songs.
As of this writing, Kim Petras has not confirmed whether she would stop working with Dr. Luke for good or if she would still collaborate with him on future projects.
