R. Kelly And Spouse Divorce Officially ......
After a whirlwind relationship that has included hit records, sold-out shows, child rape cases, and shocking interviews, Robert Kelly and his wife of 11 years, Andrea Lee Kelly, are now officially divorced.
Though the reasons for the divorce are quite obvious in the overall public consciousness of devout Kelly-saga followers, Andrea Lee, 35, claims the 42-year-old singer also physically abused her. The six-year child abuse case, which Kelly was acquitted of June 2008, didn’t help either. The two originally filed for divorce in 2006, but decided to work things out instead.
The lawyers for both parties announced their divorce as being official, on Thursday. The two have agreed to maintain joint custody of their three kids.
Andrea Lee developed a relationship with the singer and composer while working as a choreographer for his tours and music videos during his sexually-charged heyday. They married in 1996, right after Andrea turned 22.
