After facing heat for collaborating with R. Kelly in 2013, Lady Gaga has now chosen to believe the R&B’s sexual abuse accusers in a lengthy statement. Read it here.

Lady Gaga, 32, is now regretting teaming up with R. Kelly, 52, for the 2013 track “Do What U Want.” After new allegations surfaced about the R&B singer surfaced in the documentary Surviving R. Kelly, which aired from Jan. 3-5, she announced she’s pulling the collab from iTunes in addition to more remorseful sentiments. “I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously,” Gaga wrote of R. Kelly’s accusers in an Instagram statement on Jan. 9. “What I am hearing about the allegations against R Kelly is absolutely horrifying and indefensible.”

She also apologized that the collaboration ever happened, explaining, “As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the song and video at a dark time in my life, my intention was to create something extremely defiant and provocative because I was angry and still hadn’t processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life.” You can read her full statement below.
