R. Kelly broke his silence on the sexual and physical abuse allegations to both deny them, and to drag Lady Gaga.
The Do What U Want (With My Body) singer blasted his duet partner. Gaga, calling her ‘not professional.’
This allowed Lady Gaga pulling their duet from all streaming services.
‘Anybody famous can get accused’
The singer went on CBS This Morning this week (6 March) to deny the sexual abuse allegations.
When asked by host Gayle King how he felt about Gaga’s reaction he said Gaga is a ‘very great talent.’
But he added it’s ‘unfortunate that her intelligence go to such a short level when it comes to that.’
The Ignition singer said he doesn’t have anything against Gaga, but did say it’s ‘not professional because something like this can happen to any artist.
‘Anybody famous can get accused of so many different things.’
‘A dark time in my life’
When taking down the song in January, Gaga said: ‘I made both the song and video at a dark time in my life.
‘My intention was 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.
‘I’m sorry, both for my poor judgment when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner.’
But back in 2013, Gaga described her collaboration with R. Kelly as ‘natural.’
She said: ‘R. Kelly and I have sometimes very untrue things written about us, so in a way this was a bond between us.
‘That we were able to say, the public, they can have our bodies, but they cannot have our mind or our heart.’
Numerous women have claimed to be the victim of sexual assault by the 52-year-old singer.
Kelly denied the sexual abuse claims.
But documentary series, Surviving R Kelly, has led to police in Georgia and Chicago launching a criminal investigation.
It culminated with the star being charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in February.
Yet, R. Kelly was arrested by Cook County for failing to pay $161,000 in child support on 6 March.
