R. Kelly revealed in his new book, Soulacoaster, that he knew his marriage was over after seeing the movie “The Notebook.” The singer turned author claimed,
The Notebook was beautiful, and I was crying because its hero and heroine had died together, but I was also crying because … my marriage had died, and there was nothing I could do to bring it back.”
R’s ex, Andrea Kelly, responded to his claim on a recent appearance on “Bethenny,” stating,
Nobody’s marriage is ’The Notebook,’ it’s a movie. I live in the real world. So to me, marriage is work. It’s hard times. It’s difficult. It’s happy. It’s sad. There are ups and downs. So, until you find me a movie that can do that in two hours, don’t base your relationship off of a movie.”
Well said Andrea! I found R. Kelly’s statement kind of odd. It seemed like he wanted to use the movie as a scapegoat. What do you think about his statement and Andrea’s response?
