They say when it rains it pours. According to reports R. Kelly’s lawyer, publicist, and assistant have all resigned from their positions recently. Some of the aforementioned have been with R. Kelly for at least a decade. What could be the problem you ask? Well, its alleged that his former team are exiting due to recent sexual allegations including the sex cult allegation and a story about R. Kelly infecting a 19 year with a STD. We peeped this story over at the ShadeRoom. They are reporting:
At least three members of #RKelly’s inner circle have cut ties with him. According to @BBCNews, the R&B singer’s executive assistant of over 10 years, Diana Copeland, and his attorney of the past four years, Linda Mensch, have resigned from their roles.
His publicist, Trevian Kutti, also confirmed to @Pitchfork that she no longer works with R. Kelly as of April 16th.
The timing seems to come after news of several sexual allegations surrounding the singer, including sex cult allegations and a new complaint claiming he allegedly “knowingly” gave a 19-year-old girl an STD.
Copeland confirmed she stopped working with Kelly as of April 1st. Mensch told the BBC she “no longer represented Mr. Kelly or his entities”
Talk about a tough week!! R. Kelly has yet to respond to these reports. We will keep you posted.
