In an excerpt from R. Kelly’s memoir Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me, R. Kelly recalls how he managed to make a hardcore rapper cry. It was all in the lyrics to “I believe I can fly” and the “hardcore rapper” that Kells is referencing is none other than, Biggie Smalls.

In his memoir, Kelly writes:

“When I was playing it for him, I was thinking – he’s a hardcore rapper; this is gonna be too soft for him – but when I got through and looked up, his face was wet with tears. ‘My brother,’ he said, ‘They gonna be playing that when you and I have moved on to the other side of time.'”

He also opened up about how a movie led to the demise of his marriage:

“As the film credits started to roll, I couldn’t move. I burst into tears. 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.”

HOWEVER, his ex-wife Andrea basically says that’s BS, she responded by saying:

“[The movie] came out in 2004 and we saw it together. Our divorce wasn’t finalized until 2009 so it’s impossible that the movie could have been the reason for our relationship ending. We had been separated for 6 years at that point! The movie definitely did not end our relationship!”

According to Andrea, the REAL reason for the demise of their marriage was because she got tired of playing the background (unknown wife.) By the way, you can check out Andrea Kelly on VH-1’s new reality show, “Hollywood Exes/”
