L.A. Reid Reportedly FIRED from Epic After Sexual Harrassment Accusation

Four days ago, it was a shock to the music industry to hear that L.A. Reid reportedly stepped down from his position as chairman of Epic Records. Now, news has come out from the New York Post that the well-respected music exec was accused of sexual harassment weeks before his exit.

The Post has reported that the 60-year-old music industry veteran allegedly made inappropriate physical advances toward an assistant at last December’s company holiday party, among other instances, according to a March 22 letter that was written by his assistant.

The assistant, whose name has not been revealed, in the letter, claims Reid, who has led Epic for nearly six years, also asked her to lie down in bed with him and give him a hug while the two were at a hotel while traveling on business.

When asked about the complaints made in the letter, Sony Music, Epic Records label head, on Sunday had no comment.
