Drea Kelly Brags On New Hubby: 'I Struck Gold'

Source: Instagram

Andrea Kelly is known for keeping her name out of the madness and mayhem. And when your ex husband and father of your children is Robert Kelly, that is no small feat. But really, the only time we hear about Andrea is when she’s debuting her dancing skills, when we’re wondering how she gets her booty to move like that. She generally has a smile on her face, even in mid twerk-split.

But after former rapper and radio host Monie Love spoke about her ex husband and mentioned her children, her expression changed with a quickness.

Here’s what Monie said on the show:

“What the f is going on with R Kelly?! I you remember Ed telling us last week there was breaking news of R Kelly dating a 19 year old girl.

The singer has a harem of women and he supposedly has a stable of women, there’s about maybe ten of them. One of the girls is 30—but she’s been with him for 15 years so she was with him way before she was 30, obviously. And I think the youngest one being the 19 year old. The source apparently said he’s a sexual deviant and he has the women perform acts out of the norm on him and each other.

And one of women that was in his house, the one that’s 30, was actually in his house with him when he was still married to his ex wife and his children.

In an 18 minute and 40 second Periscope, Drea Kelly said:

“Y’all know Drea Kelly…I don’t play when it come to my gotdamn eggs…now I got to rip somebody a new a$$hole…Being the mother that I am, taking my babies to school this morning, I turn on the radio and you know Ed Lover has a new show and Miss Monie Love is on the radio and so she does her Morning, Evening News…I feel like she did one of the most f*cked up things you can do as a journalist. At the end of the reporting, it said something about me and my children. Keep my gotdamn children out that stupid sh*t, ok? That’s number one, I’m a mother.

At the end of the day, you are reading something on radio, which means the audience has no idea what you’re reading. You could have been a responsible journalist and you didn’t even have to say that part about me and my kids because, at the end of the day, you were talking about R Kelly, my ex. You weren’t talking about me. So why the f*ck would you include my gotdamn kids in that? Those are still children. Those are still children at the end of the day. So whatever is going on, don’t put my gotdamn kids in it.

Because guess what happens now, when my kids go to school, ‘Oh I heard about your dad that said you guys were there. It was this, it was that.’ Now you have opened my kids up to some bullshit that has nothing to do with them. You owe my damn children an apology. You owe me an apology.”

Then she started tearing up.

“And let me tell y’all how good God is, it actually came on the radio right after I dropped my daughter off at school. So thank God my daughter did not have to hear that while riding with me. That was such a blessing that none of my children were in the car with me at that time.

At the end of the day, I am a mother and that was reckless. It was wrong and I pray to God that don’t nobody come along and dig up some sh*t on Monie Love and her past, and her baby fathers if she has any and somebody say some sh*t about her f*cking kids and they don’t even know if it’s true or not. That is the most f*cked up thing you can do. Because children are innocent. It doesn’t matter how much you don’t like their father. It doesn’t matter how much you don’t care for him as a person. But you leave my gotdamn kids out of it. You coulda said everything you needed to say but when you got to that last part about his kids, that’s some sh*t you could have left out. I hope that never comes back to you.

I teach my kids everyday, I don’t give zero f*cks what they say about your father, be it true, untrue, negative or positive. You don’t ever, ever let anyone judge you on something that has nothing to do with you. That is not about who you are. I think my children to be strong in the face of adversity. You have to know that whatever they feel about your father have nothing to do with you.”

Monie Love responded saying,

I didn’t talk about Miss Drea’s children. I have four children. I don’t talk about children. There was no chatter about her children. There was no getting into her children at all. One, I don’t have any personal investments in the news. You heard me say sources continue to say. I added my own opinion at the end saying, this sounds nuts. I hope this is completely off. That was my personal, motherly remorse coming out. Because basically at that point I felt like, ‘Wow, if this is what’s going on I’m so happy for Drea that she is no longer a part of that. The part that I do get is that she’s a mom and despite the fact that her kids were not spoken about…what’s interesting also, is that this was reported on several radio shows. It’s interesting that my jugular is the jugular that’s been come for…

You can listen to her full response here.

Basically, Monie said because she didn’t mention anything specifically about the children, just the allegation that they might have been there, Drea is overreacting.

Drea’s reaction is strong. But, given all that she and her children have had to go through with R Kelly being their father, I can understand why she would be emotional and perhaps doing too much in the eyes of Monie Love and Ed Lover. And let’s not pretend that the suggestion that her children witnessed or were around for  their father’s sexually deviant behavior is not a big deal. It is. And even if a source said it, Monie didn’t have to.

What do you think about all of this?
