R. Kelly

Chicago singer R. Kelly has his city going at him. New reports claim the veteran crooner’s Chi-Town recording studio has received nearly 70 violations.

According to reports, Robert’s spot is now a legal nightmare with 66 pricey violations.

The Chicago studio, heavily featured in “Surviving R. Kelly” was slammed with 66 building code violations, most notably for using the place as a residence and not obtaining permits to build a sauna, steam room and a bar … this according to legal docs. In the docs, each violation comes with a fine ranging between $500 to $1,000 for each day the violation goes unaddressed … and with 66 violations, R. Kelly could be looking at a fine between $33k to $66k per day! (TMZ)

A few days ago, reports went viral about Sony Music dropping the controversial musician.

Sony Music has decided to dissolve its working relationship with R. Kelly, Variety has learned. No external announcement of the move is planned in the immediate future, says a source, who added that Kelly’s presence on the RCA website (where he remains) will not indicate his departure from the company, as his back catalog will remain with RCA/Sony. 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. Contacted by Variety, reps for both RCA Records and its parent company, Sony Music, declined comment. (Variety)

Last week, protestors gathered outside of Sony Music headquarters in New York City to urge the label to drop Kells.

Sony Music, through its label RCA Records, has Kelly among its artists. So organizers behind #MuteRKelly, Black Women’s Blueprint, Care2, Color of Change, Credo Action, Girls for Gender Equity, NOW-NYC and UltraViolet went to the company’s New York City offices to present it with a Record Label of Shame award and ask it to drop Kelly.
