Robert Sylvester Kelly also known as R. Kelly has been dropped by his Record Label, Sony Music.
According to reports, the artiste who is currently facing series of allegation of abduction, sexual abuse and exploitation was dropped by the record label on Friday, Jan. 2019.
Sony’s move comes after years of public calls, and even a petition from members of the #MuteRKelly Movement, for the company to part ways with him.
Those calls intensified in the wake of the documentary `Surviving R. Kelly’ in which multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct.
The protest were by women, organisations and victims including parents and relations of victims at the Sony Music offices in Los Angeles and its New York Headquarters.
Reports had it that Lady Gaga and Celine Dion who had worked with him (Gaga’s `What do you want’ and Dion’s `I am your Angel’) had apologised and promised to remove the songs from streaming platforms.
Similarly, Chance the Rapper also pulled out his 2015 collaboration with R. Kelly `Somewhere in Paradise’ from all streaming services.
Surviving R.Kelly is a six hour-long chapter documentary that dives into the terrible, tangled history of allegations against the 52 year-old super star and separated father of three.
