DJ Khaled Calls Ousted Sony Exec L.A. Reid “An Amazing Person”

Earlier this month, L.A. Reid was ousted as the chairman and CEO of Epic Records amid rumored sexual harassment claims, which select executives at Epic reportedly covered up. But DJ Khaled, one of Reid’s discoveries and protégés, has come to his defense. The Snapchat artist told the Associated Press that Reid is “an amazing person.”

“L.A. Reid, he a legend. I’m sure he got some amazing things about to happen. You know nothing but love for L.A. Reid,” he said when asked about the executive at last night’s Billboard Music Awards. “Good friend of mine. He’s amazing. He’s the Berry Gordy of our time. L.A. Reid is amazing. That’s my thoughts. He’s an amazing person and he’s a great executive, a great music mogul and he’s a great friend.”

Ty Dolla $ign shared similar sentiments: “L.A. Reid is my big homie and I’m sure he’ll be all right. At all times he is.”
