Dolly Parton and Kid Rock Leave Webster PR Following Founder’s Sex Abuse Allegations

High profile Nashville based PR firm Webster PR is in tatters following sex abuse allegations against founder Kirt Webster.

Dolly Parton and Kid Rock are the two latest stars to leave the company bringing the total of artists leaving website to 34 according to Variety.

The wheels fell off Webster when boss Kirt Webster was accused of sexual abuse by client Austin Rick (Austin Cody) earlier this week. Rick was with Webster from 2007 and 2008. He accused Webster of performing oral sex on him “using career pressure to force his silence”.

Webster PR went into damage control earlier this week with Senior Vice President Jeremy Westby taking over the company and changing the name to Westby PR but Rick says the Webster is still in charge.

Westby was basically Smithers to Webster’s Mr Burns. Rick told tasteofcountry.com “I spent a ton of time with Jeremy. His basic role was to drive me around town and massage Kirt’s feet during the year I was there. I’m not joking about the regular foot massages. He never gave the slightest complaint. Jeremy became Kirt’s yes man. Kirt isn’t leaving Jeremy in charge. Not for one second. Kirt Webster doesn’t relinquish anything, ever. This is a facade wherein Kirt runs everything vicariously through Jeremy, while attempting to alter the optics of a failed enterprise”.

Webster PR’s list of high profile clients included Kenny Rogers, Lionel Richie, Charlie Daniels, Oak Ridge Boys, Sam Moore and KC and the Sunshine Band.
