It was inevitable, but it looks like it's happened -- R. Kelly and Sony have parted ways.
Multiple media outlets, notably Billboard, report that the two sides have agreed to end his contract, which he signed in 2012. The label has been under heavy public pressure since allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct re-emerged with the airing of the Surviving R. Kelly documentary. He's also been removed from Sony's website.
This isn't actually a huge leap -- as we reported, Sony had actually put Kelly's projects on hold.
