Lady Gaga breaks silence on R.Kelly allegations

Lady Gaga became the latest star to speak out against R.

Kelly, following the release of an explosive docuseries, in which multiple women claim the singer sexually assaulted them.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Gaga said "I stand behind these women 1000 percent." She then apologized for collaborating with Kelly on her song "Do what U Want (With My Body)," and said she plans to remove the 2013 single from streaming services.

Gaga also apologized to the women saying "I'm sorry both for my poor judgement when I was young and for not speaking out sooner." As a vocal supporter of the Me Too movement, Gaga had been under pressure to condemn Kelly since the Lifetime documentary "Surviving R.Kelly" aired last week.

In it, women allege sexual, mental and physical abuse by Kelly.

It also features interviews with some of his former managers and producers.

Since the documentary aired, several musicians including John Legend and Chance the Rapper have publicly denounced him.
