Future believes that the negative attention surrounding R. Kelly over his sexual misconduct is to the singer's benefit.
"The song is called 'Do What U Want (With My Body)', I think it is clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time", she continued. But a spokesman for Gerald Griggs, a lawyer representing parents of a girl who say Kelly has kept her from contacting them since 2016, confirmed the district attorney's office reached out to them seeking information about witnesses. "The decision for him to come on was after it had already been written, but it was not an intentional reference to his [alleged] behavior".
Gaga called the allegations against Kelly "absolutely horrifying and indefensible" and after acknowledging that she, too, is the victim of sexual assault, she went in detail about the genesis of their joint song and video, which she said was created "at a dark time in my life".
New York - Pop diva Lady Gaga apologized Thursday for a 2013 musical collaboration with R&B star R. Kelly - who has been accused of having sex with children - and said she plans to pull the song from circulation. The first step, for her, is removing "Do What U Want" from "iTunes and other streaming platforms".
Songs by R. Kelly generated 4.3 million on-demand audio and video streams in the USA on January 5, the third and final day of the cable network's six-part series, "Surviving R. Kelly", up from 1.9 million on January 2, according to Nielsen Music statistics cited by Billboard.
Gaga's spinetingling Golden Globe-winning song, 'Til It Happens To You, - also mentioned in the apology - soundtracks a documentary about campus rape, and is based on Gaga's own traumatising experience.
"I believe a hundred percent that me and my family are in danger", Timothy Savage said after he reported the alleged threats to police.
Many fans had words of support and thanks for the singer after her message.
Savage and his wife Jonelyn have been trying for years to get back their daughter Jocelyn, who ran off to be with Kelly shortly after meeting him backstage at a concert when she was only 17.
The pop superstar, who has been nominated for Leading Actress at the 2019 EE BAFTAs next month, took to Twitter to release an emotional statement about the controversial singer.
Prosecutors in Atlanta also are looking into sexual abuse allegations against Kelly.
