Andrea Lee Kelly
Andrea Lee Kelly is the former ex-wife of R&B idol, R Kelly –real name Robert Sylvester also known for his alleged, questionable sexual behavior.
Last October he was accused of leading a sex-fueled “cult” at his home by the parents of his live-in girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage. At the time a former girlfriend, Kitti Jones –was also vocal about what she went through while dating the millionaire artist.
Jones made shocking revelations to Rolling Stone, saying Kelly was abusive during their relationship. She also said Kelly made her have sex with him and others inside what she characterized as a “sex dungeon.” Jones shockingly revealed her then boyfriend told her he had been grooming a girl in particular, since she was 14.
The 51-year-old star continues to deny all the claims made against him. Though Kelly has enjoyed major success in his career, the Chicago native is currently being hunted by abuse claims made by a number of women, plus the recent docuseries ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ –which recounts his numerous victims, one of them his former wife, Drea Kelly.
Kelly is famously known for marrying underage late singer Aaliyah in 1994. After their marriage was annulled in 1995 he tied the knot to Andrea Lee.
Andrea Danyell Lee also known as Drea Kelly, was born January 28, 1974; in Chicago, Illinois. The choreographer, dancer and actress was married to Kelly from 1996 until 2009.
Together they share three children 21-year-old Joann, 19-year-old Jay (born Jaya) and 17-year-old Robert Jr.
The two met as she was hired as one of Kelly’s backup dancers. They ended on a bad note after she filed a restraining order against him in 2005. She filed for divorce in 2006 and it was finalized in 2009.
The 44-year-old appeared on VH1’s Hollywood Exes in 2012. Two years later she wedded R&B singer Brian McKee –however it didn’t last and divorced him just two months later.
Last year, Drea spoke about the abuse she suffered at the hands of Kelly revealing she even contemplated suicide and now also suffers from PTSD as result.
