He has been under contract at RCA, a Sony subsidiary, since 2012.

In addition to cutting Kelly from the roster, Sony vows not to release any new music from the disgraced R&B singer, per reports from both Billboard and Variety.

Sony Music, R. Kelly's record label of 30 years, have parted ways with him. R. Kelly was removed from the RCA Records website, which lists the label's signed artists, shortly after 10 a.m. PT on Friday, January 18.

According to Billboard, R. Kelly's existing catalog will remain in the RCA/Sony system. Kelly's last release with the label was a Christmas-themed album in 2016, although he has released several songs independently since that time, presumably with Sony's consent, and Tweeted earlier this year that he has a new album on the way.

The move comes two weeks after Lifetime aired the Surviving R. Kelly six-part documentary.

R. Kelly's circumstances just became infinitely worse. While the KELLY camp denied all charges, the pressure from outside groups on the label to split from KELLY grew exponentially.

Spotify announced in May it would drop the singer from its curated "playlists".

Chance the Rapper has also apologised for collaborating with the singer on the track Somewhere in Paradise.

"I stand behind these women 1000 percent, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously", she said. In the docu-series, R. Kelly is accused of abuse by former backup singer, Jovante Cunningham, Lizzette Martinez, and Andrea Lee, his ex-wife. Kelly was charged with child pornography in 2000 after a video surfaced that purported to show him having sex with an underage girl.
