While many of R. Kelly’s fans are aware of the troubled life, the singer has gone through -- especially with regards to his current situation -- not that much attention was ever paid to his former wife, Andrea Kelly.

The woman, better known as Drea by some of her own followers, used to work as a backup dancer for Kelly during his active years.

At some point during the whole scandals surrounding the Chicago artist’s career, the two separated and have been split up for good ever since.

Andrea recently opened up about the things she has gone through during her marriage to the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer, and she went into detail about the abuse she had to endure by him.

She revealed: “I don’t care if you tell one person, they don’t believe you,” said Drea. “Tell two people, tell ten people, and you keep telling your story until someone believes you.”

The mother of three also shared: “I hope that people that came out tonight walk away with a sense of pride, a sense of empowerment, and just a little more knowledge about what abuse really looks like. We often think of abuse as just physical, and that is the aftermath of all the emotional, the psychological, the mental, the sexual, even the financial abuse that you’ve already been in. And I want people to know that their voice is their power.”

While many already knew that things between the two were far from pretty, the revelations made by Mrs. Kelly took some by surprise, and it looks like the R&B songwriter has now lost even more support among some of his supporters.

In fact, many have now taken to echo the words spoken by the reality TV star, and have been repeating her claims on social media, discussing them in detail.

It is not known if the public is even seeing the full situation right now, as there has been some speculation that Andrea has left some details out of her explanation.

Kelly himself has not responded to the recent statements, although he has quite a lot on his plate right now, so his attitude is perfectly understandable, all things considered.

It may be a while before Kelly says something about the current situation.

    R. Kelly will have to face God one day all by himself; like all of us. Personally, I believe everything that has been said about him but...only God can judge.

    It’s crazy how after all of these years they want to go after R.Kelly for this bs! What’s even more disturbing is how it took for this stupid as “Surviving R. Kelly” for people to start turning their backs on R. Kelly! Then that Nut Janie Blackwell gonna Mute R. Kelly! It’s crazy how it took black people to bring down another which is just disgusting to me! Those females knew what they were doing and it was all for the love of money and their parents where all in on it too! His wife a big fraud and an attention seeking whore! Where’s R. Kelly’s mf money they stole from him hence all of the music R.Kelly has ever written for himself and others! Give him back his rights to his music that was stolen from him by his no good ass manager and whoever had their hands in the pot all because he couldn’t read! These bs cases are ludicrous!!! So I guess it was okay for that pedophile Hugh Heifner to do what he was doing, as long as he kept playboy active it was all good! What about Elvis Presley when he married Priscilla at 14, or when Jerry Lee Lewis married his 13 year old cousin. I could go on an on but the point I’m trying to make is this R . Kelly scandle is way bigger than this bs they got people believing! The same with Bill Cosby! It’s not until Cosby wanted to but NBC is when all these so called allegations started to surface! I don’t believe Bill Cosby raped all of those white women back then and no one said or did anything? It’s all lies and fairy tales! Meanwhile Harvey Weinstein’s out on bail and hasn’t been back to jail yet for all of rapes he has committed! Go figure...different strokes for different folks! It’s always been that and always will be! Sad truth! Free R Kelly and Bill Cosby!

      Jannah have a seat if he didnt do nothing wrong he wouldnt be in the predicament he in now. Its his fault and his sisters and the people who was associated with him . they all should suffer. He knew better. He could have gotten help for his illiteracy and for his fascination with young girls. I mean he married aaliyah when she was 14.

    I saw a video on YouTube when that documentary came out a few days later she was on there in the car with her new man singing Happy People and shouting that's my baby daddy. This trick is confused.

    I do understand the situation that R Kelly is in due to what he has done or been blamed for. What I dont understand is his ex-wife claiming he was abusive. How would you feel empowered now to come out with that. All I can say people know when to put themselves in the spotlight. Why wait... If he was this type of person, why not tell your story and leave instead of staying long enough to have three kids. Because I am sure if he was abusive it started after child number one.... So you all ask yourself why she wanna say something now.

    His Fan base is intact. We understand that there are those who support His wife and her lies. And the SURVIVING LIES CAST. He hasn't lost anything except individuals who should not have been there anyway. R KELLY will be just fine.

    Andrea Kelly "Drea" is not in ANY position to speak on anything because many feel that she turned a blind eye to a lot of the illegal activity that was going on, not to mention she's benefited from being MRS R Kelly! So I'm going to need silence! From the peanut gallery! Take several seats!

    The only thing he's guilty of is giving you a disease if that's even true... That would mean one of you gave it to him then everyone after has the same disease including him.. Has everyone been tested?

    We got to keep the pressure going on Kelly until he breaks down and looses it. He’s nothing but a coward whose using his medical problems as an excuse just to avoid being in court. Next time restrain him on a wheel chair and have him transported to court in a paddy wagon

      Shaneka M please go back to school and learn how to spell and form a proper sentence. All the name dropping and personal experiences you shared mean nothing when a translator is needed.

        With all due respect; before you posted did you read your text? Along with the other individual; you need to go back to school too. Your sentence structure is trash. It's full of run on sentences and you forgot about punctuation as well. How dare you!
