“And so at the end of the movie, motherfucker from Drive’s all old and shit, right? And his wife… *wipes tear* excuse me, y’all… his wife she got amnesia and don’t even recognize him. And that’s when I thought to myself, wait a minute, how is it I drop motherfuckin’ roses out of a helicopter, and this bitch ain’t even go in a nursing home and lose her gotdamn memory for me? That’s bullshit.”

Thanks to the Fourth of July dropping a holiday bomb in the middle of the week, I completely missed this beauty of a gem from R. Kelly‘s finally-released memoirs “Soulacoaster: The Diary Of Me.” A book that I’ve already ordered three copies of for each bathroom in my house because I need its words in me today. So here’s our boy Robert explaining why watching The Notebook made him divorce his wife. Via TMZ:

“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.”

Let me tell you the most incredible part of this story and it’s not that R. Kelly apparently spends his free time making his entourage watch him cry at Nicholas Sparks movies or that he crams helicopters full of roses and actually expects them to rain down upon him instead of immediately blowing away thanks to the large metal blade spinning at speeds capable of flight. No, it’s the fact that you know he spent the entire week after watching The Notebook identifying with Rachel McAdams‘ character the most. “Bitch, you Cyclops. How the fuck I end up pickin’ Cyclops? You Professor X’d my mind.”

Their asses really are happy when you pay for them to get their nails and hair did. Damn, the man’s prolific.

  1. one more reason for me to hate the notebook

  2. adrienne

    I loved his half sung, spoken word fiasco…..it touched me in some way…..

  3. His wife was married to him for 12 fucking years, which means that she was married to him when he pissed on that old looking kid in the video and she stayed with him after that for so damn long. What the hell?

  4. Wait, so James Garner and Gena Rowlands were the older version of Ryan Gosling and Rachel MacAdams? Fish, I can’t believe you gave away the surprise twist to The Notebook that anyone could have totally deduced from the trailer alone.

    This was my first R. Kelly experience (as Dave Chappelle doesn’t count). Simply beautiful. I had tears in my eyes.

    it actually takes a decent time to get ones hair did, so i wonder if there is a behind the behind the scenes of real talk with the different takes, he apparently must have done, for this gem of a video.

    This dumbass should have read the original book written by Nicholas Sparks because I think in the book the couple lived and had kids. There’s a sequel book too.

    Shocking! I did not know R. Kelly could read.

    Fish wtf is “gotdamn”? Write “goddamn” like a man or not at all you pussy!

  10. Burt

    Nope, that’s the the movie that’s responsible for his divorce.
