R. Kelly writes in his new memoir, ‘Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me’, the movie ‘The Notebook’ ended his marriage to Andrea Kelly. But Andrea remembers it differently.
In an excerpt of Soulacoaster floating around R Kelly 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.”
“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.
R’s ex wife Andrea, who’s currently appearing on ‘Hollywood Exes’ along with Eddie Murphy, Prince and Will Smith’s ex wives 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. We had been separated for 6 years at that point! The movie definitely did not end our relationship!”
On Hollywood Exes Andrea maintains she divorced R Kelly because she was tired of being an unknown wife.
We guess R was keeping Mrs. Kelly “Trapped in the closet”. So that’s where the song title came from. Makes sense to us now.
