After this latest scandal for R Kelly, a petition has been started to have him dropped the Sony label. In less than 24 hours, more than 5000 people signed it.
The Care2 petition reads, “We must not let habitual abusers float above justice simply because they are rich and famous. Let’s work together to turn R. Kelly into a symbol for victim’s rights, reminding abusers everywhere that no one is untouchable. R. Kelly should not profit while he continues to victimize women.” Shortly after the disturbing report emerged, which claimed the singer controls the lives of six women living in a number of his rented properties in Chicago and Atlanta, Kelly denied the allegations that he’s keeping young women in an “abusive cult” against their will.
His attorney released a statement that read, “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him,” adding, “Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.” So far, police have found no such reason to charge the singer after conducting investigations in both Illinois and Georgia. Additionally, one of the women living with Kelly told authorities she was “fine and did not want to be bothered.”
