Lady Gaga has apologised for her duet with R. Kelly in 2013 for her single Do What You Want (with my body) following the sexual misconduct allegations faced by the rapper.

Posting on Twitter, she is also cancelling the streaming of the song from online streaming services.

She wrote, “I intend to remove this song off of iTunes and other streaming platforms and will not be working with him again.”

Gaga said she stands “behind these women 1000%” adding that the allegations are “horrifying and indefensible”.

A documentary aired in the US last week in which several women alleged R. Kelly had sexually assaulted them.

The allegation produced as a documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, features accounts of female victims who claim they were sexually abused, bullied into threesomes, impregnated, held prisoner and beaten for looking at other men. This prompted a new probe against the 52-year-old singer.
