Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga video was too controversial

Lady Gaga scrapped her video with R. Kelly to avoid controversy.

The 'Judas' hitmaker previously cited ''time constraints'' and mysterious ''betrayals'' for dropping the promotional clip for 'Do What U Want' - which was directed by photographer Terry Richardson - earlier this year, but it has now been claimed the footage was too much like an ''ad for rape'' to be broadcast.

According to the New York Post newspaper, the video sees Kelly - who was the subject of a Village Voice article in December alleging he had conducted ''dozens'' of sexual assaults - play a doctor to Gaga's patient, with her asking: ''Will I ever be able to walk again?''

The singer replies, ''Yes, if you let me do whatever I want with your body...

''I'm putting you under, and when you wake up, you're going to be pregnant.''

Additionally, around the time the video - which was shot last September - was due for release, its director was accused of sexual misconduct by several models.

A source said: ''Gaga had a video directed by an alleged sexual predator, starring another alleged sexual predator.

''With the theme, 'I'm going to do whatever I want with your body?' It was literally an ad for rape.''

In January, Gaga blamed ''mismanagement'' for the lack of video for the single.

She wrote on her website: ''I was given a week to plan and execute it. It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you.

''All my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored.

''Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result.''
