R. Kelly's Ex-Wife Andrea Kelly Speaks Out About Abusive Relationship

Andrea Kelly Speaks Out About Abusive Relationship on Instagram

Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docu-series premiered days ago and the reactions to it have been enormous. There is no day that passes without music stars and celebrities airing their views about the show. One of the subjects of the series was R. Kelly’s ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, who accused the disgraced singer of abusing her on numerous occasions. She’s been very vocal about her experiences with him, and in a new post on Instagram, she’s directly calling out those who have doubted what she has to say.

“Though some want “expose” the pain-filled, scared, abused women I was…..STOP! I AM No longer afraid,” she wrote in her post, seemingly addressing a video of her singing along to his song “Happy People.” “No longer willing to silence my PAIN AND SUGARCOAT THE ABUSE I ENDURED because of how my abuser and his LEGAL TEAM were THREATENING to come against me if I ‘didn’t choose wisely.’ NO MORE! Don’t speak about MY GROWTH OR JOURNEY especially if you have NEVER BEEN ABUSED.”

From covering bruises and saying you ‘bumped into the counter’ to telling his co-workers he a wonderful provider and a ‘good man’ to avoid a beating for saying the opposite… I was you! I want you to know you don’t have to cover for your abuser ANY MORE!!! It took a lot of therapy and even more tears to know what I know TODAY!!!! Oh did I say TODAY!!!! PS….WHAT I DID or SAID SHOULD NEVER BE MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHY I DID IT OR SAID IT. Do your research on #domesticviolence and the #cycles #signs and #effects before you deem yourself JUDGE AND JURY!!! OH I HAVE SOOOO MUCH MORE TO SAY AND I WILL VERY SOON!”

TMZ reports that a representative for Andrea Kelly said she isn’t against R. Kelly contacting their children together, although apparently they haven’t heard from him in months. The children are all aware of the accusations against their father, but they reportedly did not watch the six-part docu-series.
