Sony's RCA parts ways with R Kelly after abuse uproar

Popular American multiple Grammy Award Winner, Robert Sylvester Kelly also known as R. Kelly has been dropped by his Record Label, Sony Music. An official statement from Sony has not been released yet, but the decision to end their working relationship follows the release of the Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly, which featured interviews with dozens of women accusing the singer of sexual assault and misconduct.

R. Kelly has parted ways with his Sony Music-owned RCA record label, Billboard magazine, Variety and the New York Times reported on Friday, and he no longer appears on the roster of artists on RCA's website.

Variety, quoting an unidentified source, said Sony Music had chose to "dissolve its working relationship" with Kelly, but that no external announcement would be made. The man, Timothy Savage, says Kelly brainwashed his daughter.

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. The series prompted a #MuteRKelly protest that took to the steps of Sony Music Entertainment in NY, demanding the artist be dropped from the label. Kelly's last release was the holiday album "12 Nights Of Christmas", released in 2016.

Third annual Women's March marked by antisemitism among its leadership
Preparations for this year's march were roiled by an intense ideological debate among the movement's senior leadership. Toni Atkins are among the myriad speakers and public figures expected to attend this year's march.

Kelly was charged with child pornography in 2000 over sex tapes featuring himself and underage girls, but was cleared eight years later became none of the women involved were willing to testify against the singer.

Henry Mason was released on bond after surrendering to an arrest warrant issued in July 2018, according to a Sheriff's Department spokesman in Henry County, Georgia.

A representative for Mason could not be reached on Friday.
