Lady Gaga Shelf Music Video With R. Kelly Over Sexual Assault Controversy

Lady Gaga and R. Kelly recently shot the music video for their duet “Do What U Want.” The video was directed by famed celebrity photographer Terry Richardson.

But Lady Gaga has pulled the plug on the video over some sexual assault accusations against Richardson and also R. Kelly’s past legal troubles involving minors. He was eventually acquitted of the charges.

Back in November last year, NY Post published an article where a group of models were complaining about being sexually harassed by Terry Richardson. The photographer has denied the allegations.

According to TMZ, Gaga fear the negative backlash of she released the explicit music video and decided to put it on the shelf for now. Richardson also appeared in the video photographing Lady Gaga.

Terry Richardson was also the director behind Miley Cyris “Wrecking Ball” music video.
