Inappropriate Pitch: L.A. Reid exits Epic Records following sexual harassment allegations

L.A. Reid’s sudden departure from his longstanding position as chairman of Sony Music Entertainment’s Epic Records over the weekend is now said have been in response to his being accused of sexually assaulting a female assistant…

Evidently, inappropriate games of grab-azz in the workplace get you nowhere but the unemployment line based on the unforeseen removal of the 60-year-old married music mogul who allegedly made a number of unwelcomed remarks about a lady co-worker’s appearance and clothing…And supposedly hit her with several propositions that caused her embarrassment and distress, making it impossible for her to continue working at Epic.


According to a letter fired off by legal reps for L.A.’s accuser, obtained by the New York Post, the three time Grammy Award winning executive is also guilty of asking the unnamed woman to, “lay down in bed with him and give him a hug while the two were in a hotel traveling on business,” and describing her as looking “fine.”

The termination of L.A.–who’s responsible for signing the likes of Bobby Brown, Boyz II Men, TLC, Mariah Carey, Avril Laving, Paula Abdul, Kanye West, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez– from Epic came without warning on Saturday.
A brief statement from Sony Music read, “L.A. Reid will be leaving the company.”
The label has not made any public comments about the allegations made against their only black CEO to oversee three major record companies (Epic, Universal Music Group’s Island/Def Jam and LaFace Records); however, a Sony source close to L.A.’s camp told the Post, “We are not allowing a culture like that in this company no matter how much a person brings to the bottom line.”
So far, L.A. has not made any open remarks about his legal woes..
