Greenberg said Kelly is going through a "very difficult time" during all this.
"The record companies are abandoning it," Greenberg said. "Other artists are acting suddenly as if they were shocked by these rumors that are floating around, it's going through a very difficult time, but it's strong, it's hard, it wants to publish its music and keep playing for the people." And I hope that's what he can do. "
