Lady Gaga Apologizes For Working With R. Kelly And For Not Speaking Out Sooner

The Pop superstar was slammed for her history with the alleged abuser.

(AllHipHop News) According to Surviving R. Kelly executive producer dream hampton, the production asked Lady Gaga to appear in the Lifetime docuseries. The singer/actress - who collaborated with Kelly on the Artpop single "Do What U Want" - apparently denied the request. Hampton also called out Gaga for her 2013 SNL performance featuring R. Kelly.

Back in August of 2018, Nicki Minaj tweeted about Lady Gaga working with R. Kelly after a Pitchfork article took issue with Nicki recording "Fefe" with convicted sex offender 6ix9ine. The Queen album creator indicated she only mentioned Gaga to point out a double standard, but Minaj eventually deleted the tweet.

Lady Gaga has now used Twitter to voice her thoughts on the multiple physical abuse accusations and statutory rape allegations against Kelly. She posted a lengthy message along with a tweet that read, "I stand by anyone who has ever been the victim of sexual assault."

The statement included Gaga calling the claims against Kelly "horrible" and "indefensible." The expected Academy Award contender for A Star Is Born also pledged to remove "Do What U Want" from iTunes and streaming services.

Additionally, Chance The Rapper apologized for making the R. Kelly collaboration "Somewhere in Paradise" in 2015. John Legend, Common, Tank, Ne-Yo, 6lack, Omarion, and other musicians have denounced the accused sexual predator as well.
