R. Kelly: ‘Ryan Gosling Made me Dump Wife’

Posted by Adam

SINGER R. Kelly has blamed Ryan Gosling for the breakdown of his marriage to ex-wife Andrea.

The Ignition hitmaker says that he decided to divorce his former back up dancer wife after seeing The Notebook, because his 12-year legal union could not compare to the love Ryan’s character had with Rachel McAdams‘.

“As the film credits started to roll, I couldn’t move,” he said. “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.”

“[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.”
