Journalist Jim DeRogatis had been doggedly reporting on R. Kelly’s many alleged sex crimes for years, but something about actually hearing from the victims in Surviving R. Kelly has created an inflection point. First, artists like Lady Gaga and Celine Dion, who have recorded songs with Kelly, began removing those songs from streaming platforms. Activists in the “Mute R. Kelly” movement later flew an airplane over the headquarters of Kelly’s label, Sony, with a sign begging it to drop him.
Now it seems the message was received. As of Friday afternoon, according to Billboard, Sony is no longer R. Kelly’s label.
This news wasn’t all that emerged from R. Kellyland on Friday: The disgraced artist’s former manager was also arrested for making “terroristic” threats toward the family of one of Kelly’s alleged victims.
For anyone who hasn’t heard enough about Kelly’s sordid past at this point, NBC Dateline is airing a surprise special about him tonight.
