R. Kelly's Ex-Wife Shuts Down His Request To Shut Her Up On Social Media & On TV

Drea Kelly will not be silenced so easily, as R. Kelly is learning.

(AllHipHop News) R. Kelly's wife had some words for the singer, over the news he is taking legal action in a bid to silence his ex-wife Drea Kelly.

R. Kelly is accusing her of breaking the terms of their divorce settlement by publicly discussing their marriage.

The embattled R&B vet filed legal papers against Andrea, who is the mother of his three children.

He says has repeatedly violated their 2009 agreement by opening up about their troubled relationship in media interviews and on her U.S. reality show "Growing Up Hip Hop."

According to the court documents, the singer and his ex, aka Drea Kelly, both vowed not to divulge details regarding "any account of their private lives, business activities, relationship with each other, marriage or circumstances surrounding the dissolution" when they finalized their divorce.

But R. Kelly alleges she has failed to honor the deal, particularly in recent months as they battled over child support payments.

"Kelly has not made one disparaging remark about Drea publicly - and there's plenty he could say," the musician's attorney, Steve Greenberg, told TMZ. "Drea has two strands of income - child support from R. Kelly and blasting R. Kelly publicly."

Drea's lawyer labeled R. Kelly a hyprocrite, since he has violated the same order multiple times and even wrote a book about their relationship.

"Robert has not been complying with that provision of their agreement for years, even put out a book, 'Soulacoaster' with details of their marriage and divorce -- he essentially waived that provision and is now using it as a vindictive sword to punish her for asserting her right in domestic relations court and forcing him to comply with his financial obligations," Drea's lawyers said in a statement.

R. Kellly wants a court order to ban Drea from continuing to speak to the media about their failed marriage, or her thoughts on the 52-year-old's various criminal charges.

Either way, R. Kelly should get used to being in court, and possibly prison.

He is still facing 11 sex crime charges relating to an alleged 2010 incident with a minor, on top of the 10 separate counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four victims, three of whom were underage at the time of the alleged encounters, which were filed against him earlier this year.

R. Kelly has pleaded not guilty to all accusations.
