R. Kelly’s Lawyer, Assistant and Publicist Have Quit

Looks like some people are planning ahead before the indictment and getting the hell from around R. Kelly NOW. The day is near, when we all will witness the ruins of this talented and gifted man. I know because people have loved his music from day one, it’s hard to believe that a person could be capable of such accusations. Until the matter is addressed and aired via the media, social media and the court, people are going to be divided on this story.

According to reports, his attorney Linda Mensch and his assistant Diana Copeland have both quit. R. Kelly’s publicist, Trevia Kutti, has also resigned.

via Rolling StoneIn a statement, Kelly’s publicist, Trevian Kutti, told Rolling Stone, “effective April 16, 2018, I no longer represent Mr. Robert Kelly.”  

In a separate statement, the singer’s attorney, Linda Mensch, said, “I no longer represent R. Kelly. My resignation was unrelated to any allegations related to Mr. Kelly’s social life.” She previously worked for the singer for four years. In addition, BBC reports that Kelly’s executive assistant, Diana Copeland, who worked with the singer for over a decade, has also left his employ as of April 1st. Rolling Stone was unable to independently verify this by press time.

The reasons behind the departures are unknown. The news of their exit comes soon after the release of a BBC documentary, R. Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes, which investigated the numerous allegations ­­– including alleged sexual relationships with underage women, mental and physical abuse of women and “brainwashing” women in a “cult” – against the singer.
