Wendy Williams has had a change of opinion in regards to Kesha’s claim that she had been offered contractual freedom if she recanted her sexual abuse allegations against Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald.
“Kesha, I want to A, apologize to you and B, you’re a hell of a woman,” Wendy told her ‘Wendy Show’ audience on Monday.

“Remember the day we were talking about that story and I said, ‘Well, there’s two sides to every story’ and you all were like ‘Well, wait Wendy, when a woman says rape, you better believe it’s rape.’ Well, no, you know what, unfortunately a lot of people lie about rape so I was just being skeptical, that’s what I do,” Williams continued. “I wasn’t sure, but I’m also woman enough to say ‘damn, Kesha, I apologize.’… I don’t think a lot of women could rise to the occasion the way you did, Kesha, you keep going.”
In February, Williams called a New York Supreme Court judge’s ruling in favor of Sony and Gottwald “fair,” because “business is business.”
“If everybody complained because somebody allegedly sexually abused them… contracts would be broken all the time,” Williams said. “Kesha’s no spring chicken. I mean she’s like, 30 years old?… So she wasn’t stupid 10 years ago and neither was her mother when the sexual abuse — alleged sexual abuse — started, why weren’t they rolling camera on it?”
We’re glad to see Wendy own up to what she feels was misjudgment.
