I’m having a hard time believing this one. You? The 2004 hit movie The Notebook which is an amazing love story is what R Kelly is claiming brought him to divorcing his wife. Really? Isn’t that movie like one of the best love stories? I adore the movie.
He was married to Andrea Lee for 12 years and their marriage finally came to an end in 2009, but R Kelly’s book “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me” hits stores now and this is where he tells the public about the movie disrupting his marriage.
He said he bawled watching the movie and realized how amazing of a love story it was, but he also said he was crying because he realized marriage wasn’t meant to last. Um. Okay then.
There were many claims throughout his marriage to Andrea of domestic abuse. They had 3 children together also. Read all about it here.
There were also many claims that R Kelly said his dancer wife was upset she had to put her career on the backburner to be a stay at home mom and wife. Tension grew from that aspect of their union.
He also said that his marriage and he himself couldn’t stand up to Ryan Gosling’s character in the movie. He realized it wouldn’t be like the fairy tale movie. Read here.
Now, of course, his wife disagrees. His wife claims there is NO way this movie could have encouraged the dissolution of their marriage since it came out in 2004 and they had already been separated when the movie came out.
