R. Kelly claims that the movie The Notebook inspired him to divorce his wife of 12 years, Andrea Kelly.
How in the world does R. Kelly connect the fictional love story between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams to the demise of his real marriage? Oh, read on, it’s worth every second.
In his memoir Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me, the controversial R&B artist writes, “As the film credits started to roll, I couldn’t move. I burst into tears. People walking past me patted me on the back, trying to console me. The Notebook was beautiful, and I was crying because its hero and heroine had died together.”

R. Kelly adds, “But I was also crying because I remembered a Valentine’s Day — when a helicopter dropped a rainfall of roses — that had come and gone … My marriage had died. And there was nothing I could do to bring it back.”
Interesting. Ridiculous… but interesting.
Andrea Kelly tells TMZ, “The movie came out in 2004 and we saw it together. Our divorce wasn’t finalized until 2009 so it’s impossible that the movie could have been the reason for our relationship ending.” She’s not buying his load of crap either.
Andrea auditioned as a backup dancer for R. Kelly in 1994. The couple wed in 1996 and have three children. Andrea is currently starring in VH1’s Hollywood Exes, alongside the exes of Will Smith, Eddie Murphy, Prince, and Jose Canseco. I guess it’s safe to say we won’t be seeing the Exes kickin’ back to watch any Nicholas Sparks inspired chick flicks anytime soon.
