Though many believe this is just a terrible rumor, some are beginning to think it is true. A few months after the Grammys, Ehrlich was fired from his position and the reason given was Ehrlich made an “indiscretion and violation of the Academy’s ethics and integrity in rewarding talent.” Neil Portnow released a statement saying, “With almost ten years of being President for The Academy, I would have never predicted that this would happen. My lack of blessing for Chris’ nomination was known, but as I’ve always respected by colleagues’ insights, I mustered all I could not to fight it so much. I have worked alongside Ken for years now, and I am heavily disappointed, and will have to raise the conduct around this board. will see to it that nothing of this caliber of humiliation will happen again.”
Ken Ehrlich has yet to comment on the matter and after trying to remain silent, Chris Brown’s camp are vehemently denying the story. Breezy’s camp are calling the story “bogus.”
