Lenny Kravitz has finally spoken out about the controversy surrounding his recent wardrobe malfunction, which saw him accidentally flashing his penis to a crowd of people while performing.

The 51-year-old musician accidentally flashed his penis to a crowd of people at his concert in Stockholm on Monday night after the Rick Owens black leather outfit he donned suffered a wardrobe malfunction.

An image of his family jewels went viral on Tuesday, leading some fans to go red in the cheeks after setting their sights on his goods.

Lenny made light of the entire situation by sharing a screenshot of his text conversation with fellow rock and roll star Steven via Twitter.

The image captured a message Steven sent to Lenny which reads: “Dude… No underwear and pierced… F*** me.. You never showed me that sh*t (sic)”.

Lenny wrote “#penisgate” in the tweet attached to the pic of the shocked text Steven messaged him.

Lenny is the father of 26-year-old Mad Max: Fury Road actress Zoë Kravitz.

Although she loves her dad, the star has previously admitted his outfits once incited complete dread in her.

"My dad came to pick me up from school once in a sports car wearing a mesh see-through shirt and leather pants," Zoë cringed to British newspaper Metro. "I remember all the high-schoolers just swarming to the car park and I just crawled under a rock, because at that age all you want is to fit in. So yeah, that was embarrassing at the time."

Lenny is currently performing shows in North America and Europe in promotion of his 2014 album Strut.
