Troubled singer R. Kelly has finalized his divorced from wife Andrea Lee Kelly after 11 years of marriage.
Lawyers for Mr. Kelly, 42, released a statement this week announcing that the couple’s devoice. Calling the split “amicable“ the statement offers very little detail, asking that the public respect Mr. Mrs. Kelly’s requests for privacy, but contends that the two “will share joint custody of their three children.”
The devoice papers were filed 2006, but the couple had held out hopes that they could work out their differences.

The two met in 1994 when, at the age of 18, Andrea (now 35) auditioned to be a backup dancer for Kelly. They married in 1996 but separated in 2005 after Andrea filed a restraining order against him claiming Kelly had physically abused, harassed and stalked her. She rescinded the restraining order weeks later.
