Epic Records' L.A. Reid Accused of Harassment (Report)

Last week, CEO of Sony Music Entertainment’s Epic Records, L.A. Reid, abruptly exited the job – and now it’s being revealed why.

The 60-year-old music executive is being accused of “unlawful harassment of an employee” by a former female assistant. None of the claims by the female employee have been verified.

The company investigated this claim after it was made, Billboard reports. The female assistant’s attorney wrote a letter where she alleges inappropriate remarks about her appearance and clothing. The letter also threatened legal action if a settlement was not reached. It’s unclear if Sony was able to confirm the letter’s contents. Apparently, sources say the letter isn’t totally accurate.

Chris Martin Honors Radio Star Elvis Duran at His Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony

Chris Martin joins his buddy Elvis Duran to honor him with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday (March 2) in Hollywood.

The 52-year-old radio personality, who hosts the Elvis Duran and Morning Show on NYC’s Z100, received support from Chris and L.A. Reid at the event.

“I don’t know if this is typical of people in radio who’ve been around as long as I have, but I really had no ambitions,” Elvis told Variety about receiving the honor. “Radio was always a fun, geeky thing to be a fan of — the history of radio, where it is, and where it’s going — but it was really also a pretty easy job. You just show up for four hours a day, play a lot of music, scream over the intros, then go home. And they pay you a decent amount of money sometimes. So it was the perfect job for someone with zero ambition.”

Meghan Trainor joins Epic Records head L.A. Reid as a guest at the conversation about his new memoir on Tuesday (February 2) at 92Y in New York City.

The 22-year-old singer recently told Fuse that she wrote her upcoming single “No” in one day to impress L.A. after her label told her she didn’t have a lead single on her record yet.

“I left that meeting and I went to the studio and I wrote a big anthem that was called ‘No,’” Meghan said. “And I came back to L.A. Reid the next day, with it all produced and written, and I played it for him and he played it 24 times at 9:00 p.m. at night, because he loved it so much. He was like, ‘There it is.’”
