Lady Gaga has finally chose to speak out about her former duet partner R. Kelly, who is under renewed scrutiny for years of sexual abuse allegations in the aftermath of a new documentary series.

"I stand by anyone who has ever been the victim of sexual assault", Gaga captions a note on Twitter.

The official videos for the 2013 song have been removed from YouTube as well - all except a version of the song in which Gaga dressed as Marilyn Monroe and Kelly dressed as John F. Kennedy during the American Music Awards.

"What I am hearing about the allegations against R. Kelly is absolutely frightful and indefensible", she said in a statement.

Gaga wrote of the song: "As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the song and the video at a dark time in my life".

"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. "I embrace all survivors of sexual and domestic violence and abuse holding a special place in my heart, and you @ladygaga, for doing the right thing!"

R.Kelly has denied all allegations against him.

Suspicious packages sent to embassies in Australia
Sky reported that the scare coincided with the USA embassy's hazmat training, which had been booked for months. Some of the packages were reported to contain what appeared to be concrete, and were labelled asbestos.

The song was supposed to be about how the media and public talk and write about celebrities, but when you take into the account the history of R. Kelly, it takes on an entirely different meaning.

"I hope and pray that the DA makes a move quick from out of Chicago or out of Atlanta because at this point, he may be leaving the country with these girls and whoever to try to flee from this situation", said Timothy Savage.

Dash shared that, because of his relationship with Aaliyah, he wanted no part of making R. Kelly's 2002 record, The Best of Both Worlds, leaving it to Jay-Z to work on (via Perez Hilton).

"I definitely believe he will face the music".

The singer stands with all sexual assault victims who have been tainted by R.Kelly and vowed to do so in a statement.

"I knew, morally, we weren't the same", he explained, adding, "It was over".

According to police, there is a warrant against R. Kelly's former manager for terroristic threats stemming from a May 2018 phone call.
