Word on the street is long-time music executive, LA Reid, had to leave Epic Records because of sexual harassment allegations. Reportedly, a letter was sent to Sony’s general counsel from one of his female assistants that claims he made “inappropriate remarks about her appearance and clothing” and “alleged propositions that caused her embarrassment and distress.”
The letter threatened legal action if a settlement was not made. So in the midst of all that pressure, Sony Music issued a one-sentence statement regarding Reid’s departure: “L.A. Reid will be leaving the company.”
But get this luvvs.. Epic executives allegedly knew of his behavior, according to Billboard. The letter mentioned that the assistant complained to her immediate supervisor, but the supervisor brushed it off as if nothing could be done. How shady is that!
Now that L.A. Reid is gone, this makes me wonder who will replace him. Any thoughts?
