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.

"R Kelly and I have, sometimes, very untrue things written about us", Gaga reportedly said in 2013.

Posting on social media on Wednesday, Gaga wrote that she had collaborated with Kelly on "Do What U Want (With My Body)" during a "dark time" in her life as a victim of sexual assault.

"I intend to remove this song off of iTunes and other streaming platforms and will not be working with him again", Lady Gaga wrote.

"I am sorry, both for my poor judgement when I was young, and not for speaking out sooner".

R. Kelly seems unfazed by the controversy generated by the docuseries. The documentary also reveals new allegations of sexual, mental, and physical abuse and the alleged abuse of underage girls.

The song also has an alternate version with Christina Aguilera, which was released at a time when R. Kelly's behavior was the focal point of a Village Voice story in 2013.

The move comes in light of Kelly's alleged involvement with pedophilia and a sex cult revealed in the docu-series, "Surviving R. Kelly", which aired January 4 on Lifetime. In the interview, DeRogatis detailed the allegations against Kelly, describing them as "stomach-churning" and "disgusting".

Gaga has said in the past that she was sexually assaulted when she was 19 years old by a man who was more than 20 years her senior.

'I was like "Bro, you know homie violated and he violated my girl".

The documentary looked at the shocking sexual abuse that R. Kelly endured on young women and how he basically got away with it for years.

"Mr. Kelly appreciates that she recognized his vast talent and collaborated with him to help her career, but finds it regrettable that she is now exploiting this controversy to try and help her in her effort to win an Oscar", he said. Til it happens to you, you don't know how it feels.

R Kelly was rumoured to have married Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash, after a marriage certificate emerged showing they may have married when she was 15.

Kelly was featured on a remix of Phoenix's Bankrupt! track "Trying To Be Cool", and they performed with him at Coachella that year as well.
