Lady Gaga is no stranger to shock value, but the “Do What U Want” video she made with R. Kelly and infamous photographer/videographer Terry Richardson took things too far. That’s probably why it ended up getting rejected.

In the video Kelly plays a doctor and tells his patient (Gaga) that he’s going to impregnate her, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

For obvious reasons, the video was scrapped, and a source tells Page Six:

“Gaga had a video directed by an alleged sexual predator, starring another sexual predator. With the theme, ‘I’m going to do whatever I want with your body’? It was literally an ad for rape.”

Because it’s weird, uncomfortable, disgusting, horrible and a number of other things, we wont post the clips of the video, but anyone curious can find it here.

If you’ll recall, Gaga publicly complained earlier this year about the video’s delay, blaming “those who have betrayed” her. Now it would seem that there’s more to the story.
