Disgraced and embattled American singer, R Kelly, 52, has been banned from a Danish radio network in the wake of sexual assault allegations against him.
The artist’s alleged long history of sexual, physical, and mental abuse of young women and underage girls including surrounding himself with sex slaves were last month detailed in the docuseries ‘Surviving R Kelly’
In a statement by Bauer Media, which runs The Voice, NOVA, Radio 100, Pop FM, Radio Soft and MyRock in Denmark, reaching around 2.7million listeners each week in a country of 5.8million, they said they have barred Kelly after the ‘very serious’ claims.
As a radio we have a responsibility on who we give the airtime to,’ said Bauer Media official Tobias Nielsen. ‘It’s very serious and we feel we can’t have him on the playlists.’
This comes a day after R.Kelly announced that he will be going on tour to perform in Australia, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka. He is also scheduled to perform in Germany in April.
