The development is the latest in the ongoing legal battle between Dr. Luke and his one-time protege Kesha.

Now that the subpoena has been issued, Gaga will be required to set a date to appear in-person for a three-hour deposition, during which she'll be quizzed by Dr. Luke's attorneys.

Gottwald's rep said in a statement, "In connection with Dr. Luke's defamation claims against Kesha, various third parties are being deposed by both sides, including celebrities".

"Dr. Luke's counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha", his lawyer said in a statement to Variety on Saturday.

The lawyer added that they are going through the judge to force Lady Gaga because the "Bad Romance" singer has refused to cooperate in giving a date for her deposition. It reads: "As Lady Gaga's legal team will present to the court, she has provided all of the relevant information in her possession and is at most an ancillary witness in this process".

Dr Luke's lawyers had previously objected to Lady Gaga's role in spreading "negative messages" and joining Kesha's "smear campaign" against the producer, including urging Sony Music to cut ties with him, USA Today noted.

Lady Gaga is standing firmly by her pal Kesha. Gottwald's legal team claims that Gaga has improperly redacted much of the content of text message exchanges between the two singers.

Kesha then countered Dr. Luke in court by trying to break the contract based on the allegations that her producer at the time raped her and verbally abused her over the years.

Lady Gaga was quoted as saying: "Why is (the) victim always the "liar"?" Why do we let people in a position of power get away with behaving inhumanely? "Give me what I want or else I will come after you" and they have all the money and the resources to do it".

Rainbow, Kesha's first album since 2012, is due out August 11th via Kemosabe and RCA, Dr. Luke is no longer associated with Kemosabe in any way.
