(Andrea Kelly Instagram)

R. Kelly’s ex-wife,Andrea Kelly, who claims the singer abused her during their marriage, has added her voice to the chorus of celebrities who have shared their opinions about Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly” docuseries that aired in three parts last week.

Andrea has been very vocal about her experiences with the R&B hitmaker, and in a new post on Instagram, she addressed the doubters and naysayers who don’t believe her sob tale.

“Though some want “expose” the pain-filled, scared, abused women I was…..STOP! I AM No longer afraid,” she wrote in her post that came after folks slammed her for singing along to an R. Kelly song in a newly surfaced video.

“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.”

Thank God for his grace,guidance,love AND deliverance. I celebrate the women I am TODAY! Though some want “expose” the pain filled, scared,abused women I was…..STOP! I AM No longer afraid. 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. And for the ones that have endured my pain and have been in the place I WAS IN YEARS AGO….as in IN MY PAST😳YOU’RE NOT ALONG. 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.

A rep for Andrea spoke to @tmz_tv and said this newly surfaced clip of her singing Kelly’s “Happy People” “in no way should be perceived as an extension of support for R. Kelly, but should be viewed as a statement of her strength and not having been defeated.”

A rep also said Andrea isn’t against her contacting their children, who are reportedly all aware of the accusations against their famous father.

  1. I think Andrea possibly knew he was controlling before she married him…yet, she comprised thinking she could handle & tolerate for an exchange of what she wanted. Not knowing that she was in something much bigger than she could imagine. He tested her before he decided to have a surprised wedding & even that was a test of how much he could manipulate and control. I think she became stuck & embarrassed and at sometimes helpless. I have a lot of questions for her living with him full time.

  2. I wonder who in R Kelly Family molested him and his brother? We black folks love to protect our family identity when we are abuse. If his mom didn’t spend so much time in that church house and pay more attention to her own dam family instead of her church family, this mess may have not happened

  3. I have no sympathy whatsoever for Andrea Kelly.
    Women who CHOOSE to remain in abusive relationships have very LOW SELF-ESTEEM.
    They obviously DO NOT LOVE THEMSELVES.
    IF THEY DID, THEY WOULD LEAVE AND BE HAPPY!!!

    If it weren’t for OUR community giving R. Kelly a “pass”-
    His PEDOPHILE ass would be in JAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. She seems more opportunistic than a victim. Saw her on several shows and she was barely dressed and doing things promoting and advertising sexuality. Doesn’t seem like the things a person from a abusive relationship would be comfortable doing, especially a sexually abusive relationship.
