Bosses at R. Kelly’s publishing company quietly dropped the embattled singer from their roster last year.
R. Kelly has reportedly been released from his contract at record labels Sony Music and RCA Records following the fall-out from the release of documentary “Surviving R. Kelly,” which detailed years of accusations of physical and sexual abuse against the singer.
Now it has emerged executives at Universal Music Publishing Group are no longer working with the singer.
“UMPG no longer represents R. Kelly,” a company spokesperson has confirmed in a statement.
The parties reportedly parted ways last spring, after working together since 2007.
