The 51-year-old R&B star has always been embroiled in accusations of sexual criminality but has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.

However, a second plank to the new policy, covering "content that is not hate content itself, but is principally made by artists or other creators who have demonstrated hateful conduct personally", has the potential to create more headaches for Spotify if mishandled. "Mr. Kelly for 30 years has sung songs about his love and passion for women", the singer's team wrote in a statement to CBC News.
