NEW YORK, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- A New York judge decided Wednesday to drop lawsuits from Kesha's producer Dr. Luke against her mom and manager amid an ongoing lawsuit accusing him of sexual and drug-associated abuse.

The lawsuits were brought to the New York Supreme Court in October 2014 alleging Kesha's mother Pebe Sebert, and manager Jack Rovner, encouraged the singer to try to forcefully escape her recording contract. The two lawsuits were dropped this week due to lack of jurisdiction.

Dr. Luke, or Lukasz Gottwald, reportedly filed a similar lawsuit against Sebert in Tennessee in anticipation of the N.Y. judge's decision.

Reports predict the next decision in the case will regard Kesha's attempt to obtain a preliminary injunction, allowing her to finally record music outside of Dr. Luke's control as producer.

Because Kesha is contractually unable to release new music, the singer instead shared a video of herself covering "Amazing Grace," for her fans.
