Last week Sony records announced they were parting ways with R Kelly in the wake of backlash from the ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ documentary on Lifetime. Universal Publishing has followed suit…
Universal Music Publishing Group has quietly dropped R. Kelly from its songwriter roster, months before his label, Sony Music’s RCA Records, ended its recording contract with him Jan. 18.
“UMPG no longer represents R. Kelly,” a company spokesperson confirmed to Billboard.
The move happened last spring, according to sources.
