Empowered: Andrea Kelly On Sister Circle Discussing Her Highs & Lows Being With R. Kelly

Drea Kelly. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, she is a dancer, choreographer and mother. She was also married to R Kelly for 13 years, from 1996 to 2009. Andrea Kelly, is also the mother of the singer’s three children, She said Kelly abused her throughout their relationship and that she contemplated taking her own life by jumping off a balcony before “God” let her “see in the future.”

“The basis of this stance is you have to love somebody enough to tell them, ‘Enough.’ And I don’t believe that my ex-husband has enough people in his life to be real with him, to be honest with him, who care about his healing, who care about these families’ healings, and I feel like it’s God’s time,” she told Sister Circle.
