Kel said “its always a backstory , you gotta look at the background” suggesting that his ex-wife Drea Kelly possibly influenced Jay Kelly’s decision to come out as transgender. Drea Kelly is currently on the reality show , Hollywood Exes.

R.Kelly and Drea Kelly divorced in 2009 after being married for over ten years.
