R Kelly accused of impregnating his 14 year old cousin

In wake of recently released documentary, Surviving Kelly, Sony Music and R. Kelly have agreed on a split after decades of being in business.

R. Kelly’s been with Sony since the early days of his career, and has been under contract with its subsidiary label, RCA, since 2012.

A separate report from Variety Friday worded the move as an outright dropping of Kelly. Whether his back catalog will remain with RCA/Sony, however, remains “unclear.”

Also this month, the national women’s organization UltraViolet commissioned a plane to fly a banner reading “RCA/SONY: DROP SEXUAL PREDATOR R. KELLY” over the Sony Music offices in Culver City.

Several artists like Celine Dion, Lady Gaga and Ciara have separated themselves from Kelly by pulling their collaboration with him from streaming services while others have denounced him.

Sony was also feeling the pressure with protests outside its offices in L.A. and NYC.

“We are deeply disappointed that in light of the comprehensive allegations of sexual abuse made public by the Surviving R. Kelly documentary, that RCA Records and Spotify continue to choose abusers over the survivors of their crimes,” Karin Roland, the group’s chief campaigns officer, said.

As of Jan. 18, R. Kelly’s name had been removed from the roster page of the official RCA site.
