Lady Gaga breaks her silence over R Kelly scandal

Lady Gaga has severed ties with R Kelly amid fresh allegations of sexual assault against the R&B singer.

The Poker Face star promised to remove a song they made together from streaming services following the release of a documentary titled Surviving R Kelly.

The documentary was broadcast in the US last week.

In it, several women came forward to allege that R Kelly had sexually assaulted them.

He has not been charged with any offence in relation to the accusations and denies any wrongdoing.

Gaga worked on the song Do What U Want with Kelly in 2013 but has now condemned the singer, saying that the allegations are ‘horrifying and indefensible’.

The actress, whose latest film A Star Is Born is tipped for Oscar success next month, said ‘as a victim of sexual assault myself’ she was at a ‘dark time in my life’ when she collaborated with Kelly.

Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, said that she wanted to ‘create something extremely defiant and provocative because I was angry and still hadn’t processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life’.
