: MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that R&B singer Joe is making some EXPLOSIVE allegations against fellow singer R elly. According to Joe, R Kelly used his clout in the industry to try and destroy Joe's career.
Here's what Jou told Eurweb.com in a recent interview:
It wasn't until after [R&B singer Joe] left the label that Joe says he found out what was behind his perceived stalled progress. He says his own label mate, R. Kelly, put pressure on Jive execs and radio stations to fall back on promoting his records when the singles appeared to be getting too much attention.
"R. Kelly was very instrumental in making a lot of decisions when it came to my records being played on the radio," Joe told EUR's Lee Bailey Tuesday. "He would make a call to the radio station or to the label and say, 'Hey, this Joe record is too hot right now. Yall need to pull that back.' And they would oblige."
Joe says there were a lot of shady things that went down at Jive and he's happy to finally be able to vent his frustrations freely, now that he's off the label. "It's incredible that now I get the opportunity to, I don't know, maybe pay [R. Kelly] back in some sort of side bar kind of thing."
We know this sounds crazy, but we believe it. R Kelly is notorious for his jealous outbursts. Remember how he kicked Ne-Yo off his tour .... And what about that whole Best of Both Worlds fiasco with Jay Z.
