Twitter Offers Divided Opinions About R. Kelly Being Label-Less
The Surviving R. Kelly fallout continues.
Earlier today, the news broke that Sony Music and R. Kelly agreed to mutually part ways. Some other reports, however, suggest that Sony “dropped” the R&B singer-songwriter.
Regardless, Kelly has been removed from the RCA Records website, which houses a complete roster of the label’s signed artists.
This latest announcement follows the news that Kelly’s former manager, Henry James Mason, surrendered to police following a warrant for his arrest being issued on a threat of terrorism against one of his former client’s alleged victims.
Naturally, it didn’t take long for Twitter to share their thoughts about this latest development, in what is proving to be an extensive set of repercussions for the beleaguered singer.
