R. Kelly cried at \'The Notebook\'
R. Kelly believes Ryan Gosling is responsible for the demise of his marriage to ex-wife Andrea.
The R 'N' B singer says that he decided to divorce his former back up dancer wife after seeing 'The Notebook'.
Writing in his book 'Soulacoaster', he explained that his 12-year legal union could not compare to the love Ryan's character had with Rachel McAdams'.
He said: 'As the film credits started to roll, I couldn't move. 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.'
However R. Kelly's ex has stated that she doesn't believe the romantic motion picture truly caused their split.
She told TMZ Live: '[The movie] came out in 2004 and we saw it together. Our divorce wasn't finalised until 2009 so it's impossible that the movie could have been the reason for our relationship ending. '
She added: 'We had been separated for 6 years at that point! The movie definitely did not end our relationship!'
