R Kellys camp has repsonded to Spotify pulling his music.
The streaming service announced that they wont be actively promoting his music from now on in the wake of the #MuteRKelly social media movement.
Via a statement to Billboard, Spotify explained that decision was made as part of a new policy on hate content and hateful conduct.
The Ignition rappers team have issued a strongly worded reply, saying Kelly never has been accused of hate, and the lyrics he writes express love and desire.
They go on to say that Spotify has the right to promote whatever music it chooses but in this case its actions are without merit.
Mr Kelly for 30 years has sung songs about his love and passion for women. He is innocent of the false and hurtful accusations in the ongoing smear campaign against him, waged by his enemies seeking a payoff.
He has never been convicted of a crime, nor does he have any pending criminal charges against him.
It goes on to claim that Spotify is acting based on false and unproven allegations. it is bowing to social media fads and picking sides in a fame-seeking dispute over matters that have nothing to do with serving customers.
While the record producer has previously unequivocally denied allegations he was keeping young women against their will in a sex-obsessed cult, a recent BBC Three documentary brought the claims back to the forefront.
He has since issued a statement to Metro.co.uk strenuously denying the allegations, which read: My team has advised me that this is not a proper platform to express my emotions. I will not discuss details about these false allegations that have been made against me.
