The ongoing drama swirling around the singer sparked a movement to "mute" Kelly past year and it now appears bosses at Sony Music have responded by reportedly discontinuing their professional relationship with him. On Friday, it was reported by Billboard that Kelly and the label had parted ways.
Recently, a plane commissioned by the women's organisation UltraViolet and carrying a sign reading "RCA/Sony: Drop Sexual Predator R. Kelly" flew over Sony Music's L.A offices and a protest was staged outside of Sony's NY headquarters.
R. Kelly's been with Sony since the early days of his career, and has been under contract with its subsidiary label, RCA, since 2012.
In wake of recently released documentary, Surviving Kelly, Sony Music and R. Kelly have agreed on a split after decades of being in business.
Lady Gaga has also condemned Kelly, issuing an emotional apology for her work with him. Just previous year, reports of Kelly essentially holding women captive in a "sex cult" were published.
