R. Kelly's lawyer has responded to Lada Gaga's public condemnation of his client.
On Thursday, shortly after Gaga apologized to fans for collaborating with Kelly, his lawyer, Steve Greenberg, released the following statement to Access Online.
“Mr. Kelly has not committed any crime. It is unfortunate the extent people want to put his past relationships under a microscope for their own personal gain. But no one complained when they were living the glamorous Life as a rockstar Groupie or girlfriend. There are no victims-there are only those now exploiting Mr. Kelly for their 15 minutes of TMZ fame,” Greenberg shared in an exclusive statement to Access on Thursday."
Greenberg then took a jab at Gaga, accusing her of turning her back on Kelly to help her win an Oscar.
“Mr. Kelly appreciates that she recognized his immense talent and collaborated with him to help her career, but finds it regrettable that she is now exploiting this controversy to try and help her in her effort to win an Oscar,” he said.
