Breaking: R. Kelly Dropped By Sony Music

Published: Friday 18th Jan 2019 by Sam

In breaking news, it’s been reported that Sony Music have terminated their relationship with embattled singer R. Kelly.

Full story below…

Variety have, on strong authority, confirmed that the industry juggernaut has officially dissolved its near 30 year partnership with the star.

Interestingly, no formal announcement is expected to be made in the immediate future, nor will there be a formal removal of his name from his label’s website (as is oft practice for dropped” acts).

This, it seems, may have something to do with the same report’s claim that Kelly’s back-catalogue will remain with Sony’s RCA imprint.

Moving forward, however, no new music will be released by the label.

The development comes after the much touted calls to #MuteRKelly and an outpouring of fury targeted at the 52-year-old following Lifetime‘s docu-series ‘Surviving R. Kelly.’

Broadcast in three parts (each of which were two hours in length), the Dream Hampton production showcased the accounts of several women who claimed the self-proclaimed Pied Piper sexually and violently abused them. Many say they were in their teens at the time.

Perhaps most nauseating were the detailed accounts of his relationship with Aaliyah (who he married when she was just 15) and the accusations of his conduct with the teen at the center of his infamous 2008 trial.

    we live in a society now where the mainstream public has far too much influence, say so & pressure on the decisions made about other people’s livelihood. IM SICK OF IT! not this situation in particular, but all of the political correctness that’s way overblown.

      I agree 100 percent. The same people don’t even buy music! Anytime albums selling 1000 to 2000 copies (including streams) are at the top of the Billboard 200 people as a whole are not purchasing music. This news is bad and good. It’s bad because Kelly has no convictions yet people are attacking him because of unproven accusations. It’s good because now Kelly can pay his back rent with some of his severance pay and continue releasing music independently like he already has been doing.

      R. Kelly brought this backlash on himself by bedding so many women and being stubborn in not addressing the public with a sit down interview. The public wants to hear from him. He should have kept it in his pants , found a new wife, and settled down. I

        And yet they still continuing to hold his catalog, that’s foul s***. If ya don’t want him anymore give him back his catalog of songs ya will still generate off of.

    • Tetris January 18, 2019

      This pedo is going down!
      Finally!
      Btw spacey and Weinstein are in court being judge as we speak the same way this pedo should be.
      You can make any excuses you want but as Assmine said before his fans are older women so tell me assmine how will they get his music? Will you sell the singles out of your shopping car there in your ghetto??
      He needs any distribution agreement, older women will not hear is s*** on Spotify or Apple Music they will try to buy his music and I doubt any large group will distribute his music.
      He’s Fcked up girl!

      I want to drink R. Kell’s pee, take his nut, lick his toes, and feast on his feces. Since he don’t want me cause I’m a MAN then he belongs in jail.

    The masses are making him the lastest example following Bill Cosby. Black entertainers have to realize that they will never be held to the same standards as other races. The punishment and shame will always be harsher.

    • oh NO Justin WHAT IS YOU DOIN BB January 18, 2019

      STFU GEE. R Kelly is a f***** PEDO Gee, WTF is wrong with you people still out here showing that sick fk love man! MY GOD- i hope he smashes your baby daughter or sister or niece soon.. You dumb f_ck

    • Meme January 18, 2019

      Big facts. Not siding with him or Bill by any means. But this is just another example of how harder the black man has it. Where is Charlie Sheen, Weinstein, and the 7 heaven pedo? Walking free.

      • SMH January 18, 2019

        Totally agree. People can call it playing the race card or whatever delusion they come up with, it’s still an undisputed FACT.

      • Bam January 18, 2019

        Weinstein is walking free? He just failed to get his case dismissd and no one in Hollywood will work with him. 7th heaven dude walks free on the fact that it came up past statue of limitation, he’s “free” but he’s been in nothing since that came out. R Kelly is by your definition free.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian 🙅🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ Not TROLLmine nor TRASHmine January 18, 2019

        You obviously don’t watch the news, Weinstein is going to be tried for his s***. He just fired his lawyers yesterday because they could not get him off of the charge and is trying to get the judge to approve it. I guess you don’t pay attention to the news and don’t understand the legal system at all. Bill and Roberts allegations are old news… of course they’d go down first. Harvey is next. Duh .

      • Caleb January 19, 2019

        In most cases this is true but R. Kelly is not a good example. He has been getting away with abusing young women for decades and got off after having s** with a child on video. He has been living life as a very free man.

    • XYZ January 18, 2019

      Oh, please. No one lied. Bill and Robert did this to themselves. As did Kevin spacey. R. Kelly is walking free as well, though he shouldn’t. And Weinstein and sheen are destroyed in the business.

      Shut up. If u dont hate R. Kelly then I’m coming for u BIH.

  4. Meme January 18, 2019

    No no no, don’t try to save face now. Why are they now dropping him when they knew what he was doing for decades now? Oh but when the money was flowing in they turned a blind eye.

    It’s so easy for them to let him go now that theyve already made bank and he is washed.

    • Jasmine January 18, 2019

      I agree but I think someone at the label leaked this story. Kelly has released 6 songs independently (including the semi hit Backyard Party) in the past year which means his contract was more of a business partnership rather than a signed artist. R. Kelly the artist was dropped a while ago because he has not been profitable for the label in a long time. Severing ties with Kelly completely meant label writing a big severance check. Now he can continue releasing music independently. The protestor don’t think smart. Pressuring his label to drop him means writing him a big check. It would have been smarter to let the label continue shelving his projects while his back rent cannot be paid so he gets evicted. Now Kelly is going to release music independently, get more money, rent a new place, and likely flee the country as new accusers step forward. Kelly also has the money now to flee the country if criminal charges are ever brought against him.

  5. I can’t January 18, 2019

    See now, this brings me to the discussion yesterday. Yesterday, it was fine and dandy that Kaepernick wasn’t getting work and being blackballed because the NFL perceived his behavior to “misrepresent” them. He’s not “entitled” to being employed by the NFL. Well look at God folks. Neither is R Kelly. Why is it now a problem that Sony is dropping R Kelly for “misrepresenting” them?

    • Jasmine January 18, 2019

      It’s not really a problem they dropped Kelly. From a business perspective, Kelly is not profitable. He is old, stubborn, set in his ways, and unmarketable to new fans. His core audience is all grown up and our priorities shifted from buying music to buying diapers for our kids and eating dinners at resteraunts. I’m a r. Kelly fan I have not bought an album since 2010 Love Letter. That leaves concerts. Well I have not been to a R. Kelly show in 5 years and that was only because my husband wanted to see him for the first time. I don’t like his live shows because he only sings snippets of his biggest hits.

    R.Pedophilia has been nasty & abusive throughout his career, i stopped supporting this dude when I seen his molestation video with that young #BLACK girl!! I purchased Celine Dion “I am your angel” 🤦🏽‍♂️

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian 🙅🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ Not TROLLmine nor TRASHmine January 18, 2019

      Me too. I love everything Celine. R. Kelly is a MONSTER. How dare he not like boys. If was doing the same stuff to boys as he does girls I would not mind it at all. Look at Kevin Spacey and John Travolta and Liberace. They are KINGS in my book. But R. Kelly needs to be locked up! He don’t like boys or trannies like ME.
