#TalkYoShitBlackTy… Last time speaking on this… If R&B relied on me to keep it on…. The game would of died a long time ago….. Cause I love it TOO MUCH to drop 2 albums a year or even every other year…….. Unlike most of this watered down shit on the radio… I sing from a REAL PLACE… If I ain’t going through shit, I ain’t got nothing to sing about…. I could care less about the young fellas out here singing and getting it done…. I LOVE that this game called R&B is welcoming that new batch, that new generation…. I don’t sing for TEENS… I’m #GROWN… I seen your post @torylanez lol I wanna make sure I’m VERY clear about the backlash @jacquees got…. And trust that energy ain’t about young vs the OG’s it’s about RESPECT!!!!! I drop when I want to…… his words “I’m the KING of this generation” is a reach my nigha… He’s not IN my generation but you’re not the king of YOUR generation that’s the problem…. Chris? Trey? Eric Bellinger? No? The game changed the last time I touched it….. With #TGT’s #ThreeKingsAlbum and #BLACKROSE My single #SHAME was #1 for 16 WEEKS!!! FACTS!!!!! if STREAMING was full throttle I know I would of sold double platinum at least…I respect the culture and the shoulders I stand on that was here long before I got here…… and even with those last stats from 2015 I would never say I’m KING….. So yeah I get it… You’ve gotten more attention from trolling than any song or album you’ve ever dropped but you gotta show some respect….. ..( ps… that idea of the R&B click dropping a single on the same day got a vibe on it )….

I do believe that in some shape, form or fashion it is connected to him. Now, whether he orchestrated it or not, that I cannot say. But I just do not believe in coincidences. Of all the theaters, of all the nights, of all the premiers, it happened with us.”

R. Kelly’s Ex-wife Drea Kelly Tells Her Story Of Their Marriage: ‘People have no idea’

Animated GIF
Following the revelation that she was abused for years by her ex-husband R. Kelly, Andrea Kelly is now opening up to ABC News’ Linsey Davis on tonight’s edition of Nightline about her tumultuous relationship with the singer — including the moment when she realized she was a victim of domestic violence.

Andrea says that after a series of altercations between her and Kelly, she reached a breaking point in which she almost tried to end her life.

“The only thing that kept me…first God, but my kids. ‘Cause I remember I climbed out on the balcony and I looked down and it was, like, God had helped me to see my body was layin’ in blood,” she said. “Then in the background I hear my kids go, ‘Mama. Mama. Why did Mama jump? Why did she leave us?'”

During her vision, Kelly says she remembers being told to “get [her] laptop… and type in domestic violence.”

“I go to their web page and there’s a survey,” she continues. “I take the survey, and of the 17 things on the list, Robert had already done 15. And it just dawned, I was like, ‘Wait.'”

She said before that moment, she had not considered herself a victim of domestic violence.

“And the more I said yes, the more I would replay things in my mind. The things he’s done,” she added. “The things he’s said. The sexual abuse. The physical abuse. The emotional abuse. The financial abuse. And I was like, ‘No. This is you. You’re that girl.'”

R. Kelly and Andrea married in 1996, and divorced in 2009. They have three children.
