Last week, Sony Music executive L.A. Reid abruptly left his position, and now it seems that sexual harassment claims may be at the root of his exit.
According to the New York Post, a female assistant at Epic Records has accused Reid of sexual harassment. In a letter submitted to Sony Music, the accuser went into detail about the harassment she says she endured at Reid’s hands.
The letter stated that Reid made physical advances toward the assistant at a holiday party and that during a separate incident, he asked her to lie down in bed with him and give him a hug while the two were at a hotel traveling on business.
Neither Sony nor Reid has commented on the letter or its allegations.
