There seems to be more trouble going on at Epic Records. This label is no stranger when it comes to controversy.
Last Thursday Sony announced that L.A. Reid would no longer be continuing as the CEO of epic records. The dismissal of Reid was a shock to the entire industry. Reid has been accused by a female assistant of sexual harassment. Reid allegedly commented on the clothes he like her to wear, and invited her into his bed for a hug on a business trip. Reid who is married also described her as looking “fine”.
Sony has taken a definitive stand on the situation by letting him go. Reid whose recent success includes signing; Meghan Trainor, Future, Fifth Harmony and DJ Khaled. According to a source close to Reid, the letter is inaccurate. Since Thursday Reid has been telling friends that he is in talks with Warner Music Group about a position running the company.
