In light of the sexual assault claims against American film producer and former film studio executive Harvey Weinstein, Lana Del Rey will no longer perform her song "Cola" from 2012's Paradise.

While recently speaking with MTV News, Del Rey disclosed that a portion of the song references Weinstein, with the lyrics "Harvey's in the sky with diamonds. And it's making me crazy,." The track also mentions trying to persuade an older, married man to leave his wife and run away with her.

"When I wrote that song, I suppose I had a Harvey Weinstein/Harry Winston-type of character in mind," Lana told MTV when speaking on "Cola." "I envisioned, like, a benevolent, diamond-bestowing-upon-starlets visual, like a Citizen Kane or something. I'm not really sure. I thought it was funny at the time, and I obviously find it really sad now. I support the women who have come forward. I think they're really brave for doing that."

Going forward, Del Rey insists that she no longer feels "comfortable" performing the song as it will be retired from future shows.

Fast forward to the 12:16-minute mark in the video above to hear from the singer-songwriter.

Lana is set to go on tour with Jhené Aiko and Kali Uchis beginning in January.

In related news, Jeremy Piven has been accused of sexually assaulting actress Ariane Bellamar.
