Many of R. Kelly‘s team members have called it quits. Daily Beast reports one of his staff members who recently quit is Linda Mensch, his lawyer who defended him among sex cult allegations last year. Additionally, his executive assistant Diana Copeland made her exit from his team as well. Following in their footsteps, Trevian Kutti, the artist’s publicist told Rolling Stone he has also resigned:
“Effective April 16, 2018, I no longer represent Mr. Robert Kelly.”
This news follows the release of the new BBC documentary R. Kelly: Sex. Girls and Videotapes, where it was revealed Kelly allegedly groomed an underage girl to be his sex “pet.” Watch a snippet below:
Additionally, a woman named Jerhonda Pace accused the Ignition singer of sexual assault and opened up about her experience on The Real claiming she was “trained” to please the singer.
Most recently the singer was accused of infecting a 19-year-old girl with an STD. In the midst of all the claims and accusations, it is no surprise his team members are making their departures from the singer. BBC also reports more staff members are planning their exits.
