Dr. Luke Drops Out of “American Idol” Judging Panel
According to a report, the 39-year-old uber-producer would be in violation of his Sony Music contract, given that he’d be helping Universal Music Group recruit new talent.
Furthermore, Luke (real name Lucasz Gottwald) would rather dedicate his time to his record label Kemosabe Records.
An insider revealed, “He really loves his artists and wants to build up the label. Pulling out of ‘American Idol’ was the best thing for all parties.”
