Controversial crooner R. Kelly has revealed why his 10-year marriage with Andrea end and the answer lies in a notebook. Apparently, Kelly said in his memoir “Soulacoaster, The Diary of Me,” that when he watched the heart wrenching 2004 film “The Notebook,” he became so overwhelmed by the raw emotions depicted by the actors that he made the decision nix his marriage, reports RadarOnline.
“As the film credits started to roll, I couldn’t move. I burst into tears,” Kelly said in his book. “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.”

According to his tell-it-like-it-is, ghetto fabulous wife Andrea, she brings Kelly’s abstract explanation about their failed marriage into focus. “‘The Notebook’ came out in 2004 and our divorce wasn’t final until 2009,” the star of VH1’s new reality show ‘Hollywood Exes‘ explained to Radar. The dancer/choreographer went on to ask, “Did the movie really have anything to do with the divorce or was that a wakeup call for him to act like a man and realize these are the things he needed to do to step up in this marriage before it is too late?”
Andrea, who has three children with Kelly, said the couple’s marriage had nothing to do with the movie.
She tells Radar, “Everyone knows that in a break up story there are three sides – my side, his side and the truth, and the truth needs no defense. A divorce is a decision by two grown ups to end a marriage, which is actually a death. “A family has come to an end. My children and I are no longer in the same household as their father, that’s devastating for anyone.”
While still married, R. Kelly and Andrea managed to still hold their union together through tests that would topple many unions. He was accused of pedophilia which involved child porn and underage sex allegations. The case turned into a media circus and there was evidence stacked against Kelly. A tape surfaced depicting him having sex with his alleged under-age god-daughter. The tape was sent to the Chicago Sun-Times who in turn, handed it over to police.
Kelly, who was facing a 15-year sentence for child pornography, walked away a free man because the jury was unsure of the girl’s identity and were therefore unable to prove he was having sex with an underage girl.
