Lady Gaga has released a statement addressing her work with R. Kelly:
R. Kelly has persistently been accused of disturbing treatment of women, particularly underage girls, ever since he illegally married 15-year-old Aaliyah in 1997. His career has survived child pornography trials, rumors of a sex cult and even the organized effort by frustrated bystanders to #MuteRKelly. Kelly hasn't just dodged every bullet fired in his direction, he has reveled in the attention, even shrugging his shoulders in song form with his shocking single, "I Admit," last September.
Over the weekend though, Lifetime docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, somehow had a greater impact than anything that has come before. In the six-hour documentary, credible abuse survivors told stories that were harrowing to listen to and obviously extremely difficult for them to relive. There can be no doubt, after Surviving R. Kelly, who this man is and what he continues to get away with.
