It seems that more and more celebrities are coming out of the woodwork to voice their distaste of Dr. Luke, the producer that is currently in a battle with Kesha over her allegations that he emotionally, verbally, and sexually abused her for years. The newest celeb to talk out against him is Kelly Clarkson.

"A lot of artists that have worked with him don't work with him anymore for pretty good, solid reasons," Clarkson said of Luke during an interview on Australia's KIIS FM The Kyle & Jackie O Show. "He's not a good person to me. We've clashed. I can't really say anything other than that."

While the American idol winner can't say whether or not Kesha's claims are true, she did tell the radio show that she is able to "remark on his character."

"Unfortunately, that poor of character – I mean so many artists don't like you, don't like working with you – that's not normal," she explained.

She also said that she feels that Dr. Like is "just not a good guy to me," before admitting that "he's a talented dude."

"He just lied a lot ... I've run into a couple really bad situations. Musically, it's been really hard for me because he will just lie to people and it makes the artist look bad," she said. "And he's kind of difficult to work with, he's kind of demeaning."

She said that she chooses not to collaborate with him anymore, but she has on some of her biggest hits, including 2009's "My Life Would Suck Without You" and 2004's "Since U Been Gone."

"Even the last time I worked with him I only worked with him because literally I got blackmailed by my label," Clarkson said. "They were like, 'We will not put your album out if you don't do this.'"

Longtime RCA and Sony label executive Clive Davis wrote in his 2013 biography that he was the person to coordinate Clarkson and Luke's collaboration.

While Clarkson said that nothing like what Kesha says happened to her happened to Kelly, it isn't an uncommon problem, she explains.

"I've heard a lot of girls have had similar situations," she said, not going any further than that.

She added: "If it's true I can't imagine working with somebody like that."

After a hearing in February where Kesha was denied the right to work outside of her contract with Sony and Dr. Luke, many in the industry spoke up to support her, including some of Sony's biggest artists.

Luke has continually denied the abuse allegations. "I didn't rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her," he wrote on Twitter last month. "Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister. Kesha has denied under oath the horrible allegations now being made against me."

Kesha, on the other hand, continues to fight:

"This is about being free from my abuser. I would be willing to work with Sony if they do the right thing and break all ties that bind me to my abuser," she wrote on Facebook last month. "But at this point, this issue is bigger than just about me."
