Lady Gaga apologizes for collaborating with R. Kelly, pulls duet from streaming

"What I am hearing about the allegations against R Kelly are absolutely horrifying and indefensible".

The artiste said she stands with the victims of the singer, who have made allegations of sexual abuse against him.

"I intend to remove the song off of iTunes and other streaming platforms and will not be working with him again", she wrote yesterday.

"All I know is my client has not spoken to their daughter in two years and she has been seen in Fulton County at that house by witnesses that were put on national television", Griggs said. She said she would continue to champion diverse perspectives and human rights, as she has done frequently, but stopped short of using her work as an excuse for past actions. Asante McGee is one of these women, who alleges that R Kelly forced her to engage in threesomes and prevented her from seeing her children.

Gaga, 32, won a Golden Globe for A Star Is Born on Sunday and had been criticised for not breaking her silence over Kelly.

In the video, Gaga is a patient asking Kelly, a doctor, if she will ever walk again, according to the New York Post's Page Six.

Democrats and some Republicans warned that this would be seen as a risky escalation of the row and would be challenged in court. Her fellow Republican senators, Susan Collins of ME and Cory Gardner of Colorado, issued similar appeals last week.

In an article with Teen Vogue, Assante McGee said she met R Kelly at a promo show in Atlanta in September 2013, then "reconnected" with him after a 2014 Valentine's Day show.

Kelly, 52, has recently come under intense scrutiny in the wake of the Lifetime docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, that features interviews with women who claim that for decades the hit-making singer and producer used his power and influence to sexually and physically abuse women and young girls.

"I actually smiled, I was like, 'thank you!'" McGee said.

In the documentary series, accusers came forward with allegations of sexual, mental and physical abuse against Kelly. After singing the opening lines to "Bump N' Grind", Kelly told the gathered audience, "Y'all motherfuckers don't know it's my motherfuckin' birthday and I don't give a fuck what's going on tonight".

Lady Gaga, whose real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, said if she could go back in time and talk to her younger self, she would have told her to seek therapy or help.
