Gaga apol­o­gizes for R. Kelly col­lab­o­ra­tion

The Sun Herald - - News -

Lady Gaga is sorry for her 2013 duet with R. Kelly in the wake of sex­ual mis­con­duct al­le­ga­tions against the singer, and she in­tends to re­move the song from stream­ing ser­vices.

“What I am hear­ing about the al­le­ga­tions against R. Kelly is ab­so­lutely hor­ri­fy­ing and in­de­fen­si­ble,” she said.

Post­ing on so­cial me­dia on Wednesday, Gaga wrote that she had col­lab­o­rated with Kelly on “Do What U Want (With My Body)” dur­ing a “dark time” in her life as a vic­tim of sex­ual as­sault. She said she should have sought ther­apy or other help in­stead.

Life­time’s “Sur­viv­ing R. Kelly” se­ries, which aired this month, has brought re­newed at­ten­tion to the singer’s his­tory and al­le­ga­tions that he has sex­u­ally abused women and girls. Kelly has de­nied wrong­do­ing and in 2008 was ac­quit­ted on child pornog­ra­phy charges.
