We still might not know where Dr. Luke stands with Sony Music, but it looks like the label isn't as hesitant to cut ties with other veteran producers.

Last week, the company announced that Epic Records chairman and CEO L.A. Reid was leaving Sony after six years.

Now, the reason behind his abrupt exit is coming to light: Reid has been accused of sexual harassment by a female assistant at Epic.

The New York Post reports that the accuser, represented by an attorney, submitted a letter to Sony detailing alleged inappropriate behavior by the industry veteran.

Multiple outlets have confirmed that the letter exists, and have discovered there have been "multiple" claims made against the record head who helped launch the careers of Meghan Trainor and Fifth Harmony.

But unlike its situation with Dr. Luke, the company isn't letting industry success excuse inappropriate behavior in the workplace. A source familiar with the X Factor host's ouster told The Post:

Simon Cowell is more than just a good colleague to Mel B, he is also a loyal friend.

As we previously reported, the Spice Girls alum is currently wrapped up in a messy divorce battle as she's accused her ex, Stephen Belafonte, of emotional and physical abuse.

While we knew her X Factor costar had arranged for Scary Spice to stay in a hotel following a stint in the hospital in 2014, it seems the mother-of-three FINALLY left Belafonte for good after Cowell urged her to do so.

Apparently, Simon and others picked up that something serious was going on at home. Although Mel B made various excuses for her injuries, it was the American Idol judge who confronted the British singer about her husband.

It's said Simon called Stephen "a bad guy," "bad news," and regularly pushed his friend to leave Belafonte. Despite having attempted to leave her husband numerous times, it's believed Mel B credits Simon for inspiring her to really pull the plug.

Now that's friendship!
