Chairman and CEO of Epic Records L.A. Reid announced last week that he was leaving the Sony Music group.  Variety magazine discovered his reason for leaving suddenly was an accusation of sexual harassment by a female assistant at Epic. 

The woman’s attorney sent a letter to Sony Music accusing the longtime music executive of harassment and detailing a number of instances when inappropriate behavior was exhibited.  The magazine also confirmed there have been multiple claims made against Reid.   

Reid has been with Sony Music for 6 years and at the time of his departure had a number 1 record in the US with DJ Khaled’s “I’m the one.”  He also houses acts Travis Scott and Future as two top Hip Hop acts with international appeal.
