R Kelly has been ‘dropped by his record label’

R Kelly has been ‘dropped by his record label’

RCA, a Sony subsidiary, has represented Kelly since 2012.

Billboard was first to report the news, while sources close to Kelly tell TMZ that the split was agreed upon this week.

Sony Music has chose to part ways with embattled R&B singer R. Kelly, who faces numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, according to reports. Since that label dissolved in the late 2000s, R. Kelly moved to Sony BMG. However, the "Bump 'N Grind" singer's name has already been removed from the RCA records website, which includes a list of those artists who are signed on with the label. The music company and singer's decision to end their contract comes in light of the recent outrage sparked against Kelly following Lifetime's six-part docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, which highlighted Kelly's alleged physical, mental and sexual abuse on women and girls throughout his career.

The New York Times reports that since coming aboard with Sony/RCA, Kelly has sold 32 million albums for the label here in the US.

He said: "Jeremy Corbyn won't talk to Theresa May until she does the thing that the Chancellor says they are going to do". The pound was up against the dollar early Wednesday and rose further after the no-confidence vote to $1.2880.

The documentary looked at decades of sexual abuse allegations against Kelly.

Allegations of sexually abusive behavior by Kelly toward young women date back more than 20 years. Earlier this year, he tweeted that he has a new album on the way.

Months later in May, Spotify stopped promoting the work of the R&B singer. The documentary that started the fresh batch of problems for Mr. Kelly claims the R & B singer has been abusing and having sex with minors for years. As a effect of the series, many artists and former collaborators have chosen to condemn Kelly, including John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Chance The Rapper, and many others.

However, he was exonerated of all charges in 2008.
