In the Lifetime cable network show titled "Surviving R. Kelly" which premiered earlier this month, backup singers alleged sexual relations between him and three girls under the age of 16, including 15-year-old star Aaliyah, who died in 2001 in a plane crash.

It's not ideal, which Gaga admits, writing "I share this not to make excuses for myself, but to explain, ' and by declaring she believes victims of all genders and 'of all races", she avoids the argued point that too many people find it easy to protect R Kelly's innocence because all of his alleged victims are black women.

There's a version of the song that pairs Gaga with singer Christina Aguilera, instead of R. Kelly. His music streamed 870,316 times on January 2, the day before the series premiere, but Nielsen said Thursday Kelly's music garnered almost 1.73 million streams after the sixth episode aired January 6. "I wanted to know how Lady Gaga could be on "SNL" with him as someone who advocates for domestic abuse survivors and was, you know, had this ridiculous performance with him on 'SNL, '" said Hampton.

Also, in the Twitter post, Gaga pledged to remove the song from iTunes and all other platforms where the song can possibly be played. "So I know that he's a pedophile".

The rapper, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, has denied sexual assault allegations against him.

Meanwhile, new accusations have surfaced, but this time made against R. Kelly's manager.

"I am hurt and saddened because he could have been a blessing to these women but instead he repeatedly took advantage and that I cannot accept", she wrote. He is looking to continue to try to make contact with Savage herself and cooperate with law enforcement in Atlanta's Fulton and Chicago's Cook County, the latter of which Griggs says is taking the "charges very seriously".

Lady Gaga apologized Thursday for working with R. Kelly on a 2013 song, and said she believes the women who have accused the singer of sexual misconduct.

"I believe the documentary has opened up a new era".

Gaga, who performed her sexually provocative duet with Kelly on "Saturday Night Live" and the American Music Awards at the time, vowed not to work with Kelly again. "I'm sorry, both for my poor judgement [sic] when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner".

R. Kelly's lawyer, Steven Greenberg, claims that there hasn't been any sort of illegal acts committed on R. Kelly's behalf.
