    You notice if she talk about how her and r kelly met she try to clean it up and say something along the line of she was his choreographer/ back up dancer. Drea you was a stripper. R kelly met you when you was stripping in the club. Drea became his back up dancer/choreographer because of her talent. Its obvious she could offer more than just being a talented stripper. As we all know r kelly love women and Drea were one that fell right in line. She were around numerous of women and from what close sources say participated in sexual relations with r kelly and other women; kelz kept women around including Drea. The only thing that seperated Drea from all the other women is that kelz put a ring on it. Drea pretty much said damn the strip club and all the other women took the ring and enjoyed the lavish life kelz provided for her. You notice how she just talk about the alledged abuse 🤔 she dont talk about nothing else because she will then be exposed. Its already known that sparkle neice was at her and kelz home on a regular basis and she referred to sparkle neice as her God daughter. Nobody is asking drea the right questions lol

    She lying she cant compare her last name to Tina Turner. Tina demanded that last name because she made Tin who everyone loved. Ike gave her that name but she made it what it was. What's your last name got to do with A full made up name from Ike. This chick is sick and using R. Kelly's name and when she get in thr hot seat. Then she turns into full blown victim. Come on you go get this old management person who worked with R. Kelly. She's even using that to get press and pay. Let's talk about the dude you married while on Hollywood ex's. Why you didnt take his name? Please people help the press bring that up. If she got businesses and busy, how are you so free to be on everybody's media platform!!!

    I dont understand you people. Probably young folks. If youve been in relationships like this you understand. Just because shes singing his song. She was married for 13yrs. A lot of artists have done things but the music dont defy that she agrees with his faults. You all still sing songs to artist that murdered people. What do you say about that. Dont speak if you haven't lived life long enough.
    Music is inspiration regardless of who sang or created it. Really! Ughhhh! Generation that thinks they no it all.

Somebody seems sorry to have left the "abusive" relationship. Hold on! Did she forget how long they've been divorced (@9:28) after remembering everything else? Fame thirsty! I can speak for myself Miss.

      She does have a good gift of gab, she just isn't believable and has done several interviews about him being so good. If there was a gag order she shouldn't have never talked about him at all. She did an interview saying he was her best friend and how she want to get that back. She is a fraud looking to come up off his name. She married after him and didn't keep that man's name Mcgee.

  • SunshineMediaKD

    Drea is full of it! She's the reason why folks that are victims aren't believed. First of all, she can't compare herself to Tina Turner. Tina WORKED for that name and it was her stage name. Drea talkin about negativity comes with that name but even negative publicity is publicity. She's saying folks that keep their last name but that's when they have a real job! Child boo! Please just sit down. I used to hear the older people say, "silence is golden". He's a monster but she's still profiting off of him. Why's she going on "Growing Up Hip Hop"?! smh W/e!

    Drea Kelly is brave. Drea Kelly is healing. Drea Kelly is imperfect. Drea Kelly is not Drea Kelly because of R. Kelly, she is whole on her own. Drea Kelly bore R. Kelly and her’s children, who share the last name. Drea Kelly says “get help” to R. Kelly, and all of these comments criticize her, not her abuser. Our society on the whole cares more about money than ever, but Drea Kelly is using her platform to speak out on abuse and its inter-generational thread. This thread of comments criticizes Drea Kelly for her position, as though she had to defend herself. What happened, happened. It’s as outrageous to criticize her as it is that she kept his name, but how does it affect any of the people making comments in this thread? This society values clicks and likes more than words and substance. Say something meaningful. Help women and anyone enduring abuse or save your judgments for God. We have a shallow society when we meet a woman with an abusive ex-husband and co-parent to three kids with a criticism based solely on what is or isn’t allowed by or for “celebrity” statuses - what a profoundly sick society we’ve become. I wonder how Drea’s kids feel reading what women are commenting about her.

    I can appreciate the lady interviewer as she's asking a lot if not ALL the questions I would want to ask. I'm still not convinced... Andrea surely suffered abuse however she's in absolute and complete denial of her role not in the abuse by Rob but what she allowed to go on and participated in with other girls/women. It simply makes her not credible. In my opinion if you gone share your story tell ALL your truths... That's all

I don’t like her, I think she is manipulative, and cunning, and isn’t doing these interviews for the right reasons. #justmyopinion.

    I wouldn't have known who this lady was if I walked past her on the streets. Tina Turner built a career and success around her name. She's got some issues.
