Several radio stations in New York and Los Angeles have decided to join the national boycott and #muterkelly.
In Los Angeles, KDay 93.5, Power 106 and 97.1 Amp Radio have told The Hollywood Reporter that they will no longer be playing Kelly's music. The Beat 98.2 has also stopped playing the disgraced r&b singer's music.
THR also reports that in New York, all iHeartMedia stations, including Power 105.1, Q104.3, Z100, 106.7 Lite FM and 103.5 KTU have stopped spinning his music.
These will definitely put a dent in Kelly's pockets as iHeartRadio has over 269 million monthly on-air listeners and over 85 million monthly unique visitors on iHeart Radio's digital networks. NY's Radio 103.9 has also decided to #muterkelly.
The news comes the same week that a new tape was reported to have been handed to investigators depicting a 14-year-old girl being sexually abused by the singer. The tape, which has been viewed by CNN, shows the star urinating on the young girl, as well as repeatedly referencing her age.
"My client knows the identity of the girl and R. Kelly. He identified the two of them on the videotape. He worked for and has known R. Kelly for decades and he met the girl on a number of occasions," attorney Michael Avenatti told CNN.
