Lady Gaga ‘hor­ri­fied’, sev­ers ties with R. Kelly

The New Paper - - LIFESTYLE -

Lady Gaga has vowed to re­move a duet she recorded with R&B singer R. Kelly from stream­ing ser­vices and never col­lab­o­rate with him again.

The US singer-ac­tress com­ments, in a lengthy In­sta­gram post late on Wednesday, fol­lowed a new tele­vi­sion doc­u­men­tary, Sur­viv­ing R. Kelly, in which mul­ti­ple women ac­cuse Kelly, 52, of sex­ual mis­con­duct, some­times with mi­nors.

Gaga, who said she be­lieved the women and found the doc­u­men­tary “ab­so­lutely hor­ri­fy­ing”, wrote: “I stand be­hind these women 1,000 per cent, be­lieve them, and know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken se­ri­ously.”

In 2013, she re­leased a duet with Kelly called Do What U Want (With My Body).

She added: “I in­tend to re­move the song off of iTunes and other stream­ing plat­forms and will not be work­ing with him again. I’m sorry, both for my poor judg­ment when I was young, and for not speak­ing out sooner.”
