Sony Music and R. Kelly have agreed to part ways, sources tell Billboard.
The news comes on the heels of the Lifetime docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” which detailed allegations of sexual misconduct against the singer.
Kelly has already been removed from Sony’s RCA website.
After the debut of the Lifetime series, protests against Kelly began to ramp up with #MuteRKelly protests outside the Sony building in Manhattan on Wednesday, and artists such as Lady Gaga, Chance The Rapper, and Phoenix apologizing for collaborating with the singer.
Kelly’s music had also reportedly been banned from two Dallas-area radio stations, while some community organizers have begun to call on iHeartRadio and Radio One to ban his music from their playlists.
