Lady Gaga is facing the prospect of a nightmare deposition.
It has been reported that lawyers representing producer Dr. Luke have filed papers demanding that she provides a date to face them.
According to paperwork filed the 'Paparazzi' singer offered a written one but his legal team are claiming it is not good enough.
They want to quiz the star about texts she reportedly sent to Kesha claiming that she had been abused by Luke and requesting that Gaga join her on a 'smear campaign' against the producer.
He claimed the campaign included Gaga, 31, urging Sony Music to cut ties with him, and promoting "Free Kesha" on social media.
The 43-year-old's lawyers had subpoenaed Gaga to get a copy of the texts, but according to them they were so heavily redacted that they could not be read.
Both the producer and his lawyers are demanding to the judge that Gaga turn over a completely un-redacted version immediately.
Kesha, 30, has hit back at Dr Luke in the video for her new song 'Praying' – the ballad is about her allegedly abusive relationship with him while they worked together.
One of the lyrics reads: "God, give me a sign, or I have to give up. I can't do this anymore. Please just let me die. Being alive hurts too much."
