Joe Budden claims that LA Reid is a sexual predator. The controversial rapper’s remarks come days after it was reported that the music executive may have been forced to leave Epic Records, because of sexual harassment allegations.
Budden says about Reid,
I’m just gonna say it. LA Reid is a sexual predator. And now that I have this seat and these allegations are out, let’s just let the cat out the bag.
There were multiple assistants at Def Jam that said that L.A. Reid liked to call 18-year-olds in his office and soliciting sexual favors. I don’t know if that got out to the public and how he got another job, this news about the assistants, I don’t think this was a secret in the music industry. This speaks to the issue of powerful men and how they’re able to come and go as they please. These companies want to rid themselves of the liability. I’m sure there’s a Bill Cosby list somewhere.
Reid has yet to comment publicly.
