Sony cuts ties with R. Kelly amid Surviving R. Kelly fallout
The split, reported by Billboard, comes two days after protesters gathered outside Sony Music headquarters in New York City to demand the label drop R. Kelly. Sony and the R&B star have yet to confirm the separation. According to Billboard, "Kelly had been signed to Jive since the beginning of his career in the early 1990s, and when Jive became part of Sony BMG, he became part of the Sony umbrella. He has been under contract at RCA, a Sony subsidiary, since 2012."
