Sony will reportedly be dropping Dr Luke a year ahead of his contract expiration, according to The Wrap. After Kesha's sexual abuse allegations against Gottwald, their nasty court battle and the influence and public support for Kesha from fellow artists like Adele, Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson occured recently, the label has decided that their working relationship with the producer was deemed "not worth the hassle," according to the site.

It's currently unknown how Sony intends to free itself from the relationship, a decision that would fall on CEO Doug Morris and his boss, Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton or what would happen to Gottwald's other signed artists. Gottwald's deal has been widely reported to pay him $60 million over its duration.

It took them long enough. Bye Luke, don't let the door hit you on your way out.
