L.A. Reid Accused Of Sexual Harassment Amid His Sudden Departure From Sony Music!

Filed under: Legal MattersX FactorSony

no title

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:

Avril Lavigne's latest single may be called Here's To Never Growing Up, but apparently, the Canadian songstress has spent the better part of the last few years doing just that…and it seems to be doing wonders for her personal life AND career!

In the June/July issue of Nylon magazine, she not only discusses what to expect from her soon-to-be-released fifth studio album, but her unplanned romance with fiance Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, past troubles over creative freedom with record labels, and her incredibly close friendship with former X Factor judge L.A. Reid!

Ch-ch-check out some HIGHlights …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Kelly Rowland May Be Taking Over For Britney Spears On The New Season Of X Factor!

kelly rowland gif

Ask and you shall RECEIVE, Kelly Rowland!

The former Destiny's Child starlet was well-received by UK audiences during her stint on the X Factor judges panel in 2011, but while she only ended up staying for just one season, she expressed interest in bringing her talents back across the pond for the US version!

Fast-forward to NOW…and it appears that her wish might just come TRUE!

Producers of the reality competition's stateside version are reportedly in the final stages of negotiations with the singer, and if all goes according to plan, she'll be the lucky lady taking over for Britney Spears in the third season!

And we think it's safe to say that head honcho Simon Cowell is pretty thrilled with the news, as her salary demand of $2.3 million is MUCH less than the $15 million Miz Spears took in for her one-year commitment!

The Contestant Categories On X Factor Are ALL-NEW! Find Out Which Judges Got What HERE!

x-factor-new-categories-mentors-assigned

Needless to say, we were NOT expecting this kind of switch-up!

But it's a season of CHANGE this year on The X Factor, so we're gonna embrace it!

As we all know, the reality competition divides its contestants by age and gender and assigns them to a specific group, each under the watchful mentorship of a judge on the panel!

Last year, Simon Cowell took the female solo singers ages 12 to 29, L.A. Reid the male, Paula Abdul the groups, and Nicole Scherzinger the over 30s, which had us pretty curious to see which categories new team members Demi Lovato and Britney Spears would land!

However, according to sources with the show, the group categories have been completely re-formatted, and now ALL categories are based solely on age!

So HERE is the new run-down, folks:

That's right, Britney Spears may very well be an artist up for grabs!

The pop star's current contract with RCA, formerly Jive Records, only has ONE album left on it, and it appears that there are already two pretty big contenders hoping to sign her for the next phase of her music career!

And the first one may have an unfair advantage: he'll be sitting next to her on the judges panel of The X Factor this September!

According to reports, L.A. Reid is VERY adamant about
