Why R Kelly’s Ex-Wife(Andrea KELLY) cried?

Drea Kelly just can’t escape the drama surrounding her ex-husband, R. Kelly.

ET has an exclusive sneak peek at Thursday’s episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta, in which Drea breaks down over having to relive her experience with the musician with each new headline about him.
“As soon as I feel like, ‘OK, I got me and the kids, we got a level of normalcy, life is going,’ some headlines [appear] — being arrested to new evidence surfacing to him not paying child support. I’m like, ‘What?'” she reveals. “And what’s worse is I find out like everybody else. I’m on social media, my phone is like, ‘ping, ping!'”

ET exclusively announced in March that Drea was joining the cast of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta amid her and Kelly’s child support battle. Kelly and Drea share three children together — Joann, 21, Jay, 19, and Robert, 17.

 

 
“These past few months have been a roller coaster of emotion,” says Drea, who spoke out against Kelly in Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries earlier this year. He has denied any wrongdoing.

“When I think about the ways that I have been abused by Robert, from being hogtied, having both of my shoulders dislocated, to being slapped, pushed, having things thrown as me, the sexual abuse, the mental abuse, words can’t even describe,” she alleges. “There’s some things that I don’t even speak anymore, that I feel like, once you give it to God, you better leave with God, because if I don’t leave it with God, I’m definitely going to be somewhere with my hands on the glass, visiting my children every other Sunday.”

Drea gets emotional in the clip, crying over being “attacked” by other women for the allegations she’s leveled against her ex. “Here I am, putting myself in a position because I want to help women, and they are attacking me!” she sobs.

 

Last month, Kelly was charged with 11 felony counts of sexual assault and sexual abuse related charges. Kelly has since pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Kelly’s crisis manager, Darrell Johnson, told ET at the time: “These ‘new’ charges are not really new — they are the same conduct, just charged differently, same alleged victim, same time frame, same facts. There are still four cases, not five. And we still expect the same results.”

R. Kelly’s accuser wins judgement in suit singer failed to answer

(Reuters) – A woman who accused R. Kelly of sexual abuse has won a civil case by default against the singer, after he failed to respond to her lawsuit and was a no-show in court.
The woman, who accused Kelly of repeatedly having sex with her when she was 16 years old, filed the case in Chicago in February, a day before Kelly was arrested on 10 charges of sexual abuse.

She is one of four accusers – three of whom were underage at the time of the alleged crimes – at the centre of the criminal case against Kelly, according to her lawyer, Jeffrey Deutschman. She is identified as “H.W.” in criminal court filings.

A Chicago judge on Tuesday entered a default ruling against Kelly, according to court records, after he did not respond to the lawsuit and missed the hearing.

 

The judge, Moira Johnson, will hear from the victim at a hearing next month before determining how much Kelly should pay in damages.

Kelly’s criminal defence attorney, Steve Greenberg, said he was not involved in the civil litigation and declined to comment.

Prosecutors say Kelly, 52, sexually assaulted three teenage girls as well as a woman. Kelly, who has faced similar allegations for decades, has pleaded not guilty to the charges and denied any wrongdoing.

He was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.

The lawsuit said Kelly first met the woman when she was 16 years old and initiated a sexual relationship that lasted for more than a year.

Kelly, whose first name is Robert, is an R&B star known for hits like “I Believe I Can Fly” and “Bump N’ Grind.”

R. Kelly welcomed by fans at club appearance

R. Kelly received a warm reception from ravers at an Illinois club on Saturday night (06Apr19) as he made a rare public appearance in the wake of his sexual abuse scandal.

The I Believe I Can Fly hitmaker was booked to attend the Dirty South Lounge in Springfield this weekend, and while he didn’t perform, he happily talked to fans and gave out hugs, and posed for photos with the partygoers.

He was even pictured pulling out a cigar as he enjoyed the positive attention – a far cry from the backlash he has received in the media since he was indicted on 10 felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in February (19). He stands accused of behaving inappropriately with four victims, three of whom were allegedly minors at the time of the incidents.

Kelly has denied all allegations, and hours before he was due to arrive at the Dirty South Lounge, he took to Instagram to beg members of the press to leave him in peace so he could fulfill his club commitments.

 

“Yo, this is your boy Kells and I got an event to do tonight in Springfield, Illinois, so I want the media to take it easy on me, man,” the 52 year old said in the clip.

“This is how I got to get paid for right now. So if you see me in the club, with a couple of drinks in my hand, and chilling, please, take it easy.”

The singer previously claimed he has been struggling financially in light of the negative press he has received since longrunning sexual misconduct accusations were revisited in the damning docuseries Surviving R. Kelly.

Revelations made in the show, which aired in January (19), prompted prosecutors in Illinois and Georgia, where he has property, to launch investigations into his alleged conduct.

He also had to rely on associates to bail him out of jail following his indictment, and again in March (19) after failing to settle his child support debts with ex-wife Andrea Kelly.
