In private text messages, pop star pals Kesha and Lady Gaga slammed fellow singer Katy Perry as “mean,” can exclusively report.

“Was crying a lot today and needed my mom,” Kesha told Gaga in the newly unsealed February 26, 2016 messages. “I’m really upset with Katy Perry.”

“She could bring the whole thing to a head…She was raped by the same man. She is probably really afraid to lose everything.”

“U are really strong standing up to him, she’s not as strong as u yet,” Gaga assured her friend. “Have you talked to her?

“You’re right,” Kesha responded. “I need to find sympathy and empathy for her. She’s so mean. It’s hard.”

Gaga then offered to reach out to Perry for the “Blow” star.

“Do you want me to see if I can talk to her?” Gaga said. “I know she’s mean.”

After Kesha asked if she was friendly with Perry, Gaga blasted the idea she would ever be close to the “Dark Horse” singer.

“NO!” she said. “Omg NO.”

“She makes me angry about shit but I just try to have empathy for her,” the star said.

As previously reported, Perry has vehemently denied being sexually assaulted by Dr. Luke.

In a newly unsealed court deposition as part of the case, she claimed she was “pissed off” with Kesha for bringing her in the middle of her nasty legal battle.

Kesha has claimed Dr. Luke repeatedly assaulted her during their working relationship. Her lawsuit against him was ultimately dismissed, but Luke filed a defamation suit against her for the accusations.

Dr. Luke’s attorneys want the Lady Gaga/Kesha text messages included in the case as proof that Kesha allegedly intentionally defamed the producer to others in the entertainment industry, causing him to lose his work relationships and other opportunities.

The lawsuit remains ongoing.
