Lady Gaga & R. Kelly Duet Video Scrapped Over Controversy

Everyone remembers how awkward they felt seeing R. Kelly bumpin’ and grindin’ all over Lady Gaga during a raunchy performance of their steamy duet “Do What U Want” on Saturday Night Live last November. Well, the controversy surrounding the explicit hit has landed the video in the can.

According to Page Six, Gaga says the video got the boot because of time constraints and “those who have betrayed me.” A source says the visual, which was directed by photographer, Terry Richardson (who came with his own PR baggage soon after), showed racy scenes between the two singers. In it, Kelly reportedly plays a doctor and Gaga, his patient. (We’ve all seen this before.)

Gaga apparently asks Kelly, “Will I ever be able to walk again?” to which the singer replies, “Yes, if you let me do whatever I want with your body.” Dr. Kellz adds, “I’m putting you under, and when you wake up, you’re going to be pregnant.”

Yeah, we’re siding with this video being kept under wraps.

UPDATE: TMZ (of course) has released clips from the now-scrapped video.
