*While discussing R. Kelly’s new girlfriend on Ed Lover’s morning show, former rapper turned radio personality Monie Love stated that one of Kelly’s “harem of women” lived in the home that he once shared with his ex-wife and children.
Here’s what Monie said on the show:
“What the f is going on with R Kelly?! I you remember Ed telling us last week there was breaking news of R Kelly dating a 19-year-old girl.
The singer has a harem of women and he supposedly has a stable of women, there’s about maybe ten of them. One of the girls is 30—but she’s been with him for 15 years so she was with him way before she was 30, obviously. And I think the youngest one being the 19-year-old. The source apparently said he’s a sexual deviant and he has the women perform acts out of the norm on him and each other.
And one of women that was in his house, the one that’s 30, was actually in his house with him when he was still married to his ex-wife and his children.”
The comment didn’t sit well with Kelly’s ex, Andrea Kelly. So she called Monie out in a Periscope clip, saying:
“Y’all know Drea Kelly…I don’t play when it come to my gotdamn eggs…now I got to rip somebody a new a$$hole…Being the mother that I am, taking my babies to school this morning, I turn on the radio and you know Ed Lover has a new show and Miss Monie Love is on the radio and so she does her Morning, Evening News…I feel like she did one of the most f*cked up things you can do as a journalist. At the end of the reporting, it said something about me and my children. Keep my gotdamn children out that stupid sh*t, ok? That’s number one, I’m a mother.
At the end of the day, you are reading something on radio, which means the audience has no idea what you’re reading. You could have been a responsible journalist and you didn’t even have to say that part about me and my kids because, at the end of the day, you were talking about R Kelly, my ex. You weren’t talking about me. So why the f*ck would you include my gotdamn kids in that? Those are still children. Those are still children at the end of the day. So whatever is going on, don’t put my gotdamn kids in it.
Because guess what happens now, when my kids go to school, ‘Oh I heard about your dad that said you guys were there. It was this, it was that.’ Now you have opened my kids up to some bullshit that has nothing to do with them. You owe my damn children an apology. You owe me an apology.”

Monie Love responded to Drea, insisting that she’s overreacting because she never said anything negative about her children.
“I didn’t talk about Miss Drea’s children. I have four children. I don’t talk about children. There was no chatter about her children. There was no getting into her children at all. One, I don’t have any personal investments in the news. You heard me say sources continue to say. I added my own opinion at the end saying, this sounds nuts. I hope this is completely off. That was my personal, motherly remorse coming out. Because basically at that point I felt like, ‘Wow, if this is what’s going on I’m so happy for Drea that she is no longer a part of that. The part that I do get is that she’s a mom and despite the fact that her kids were not spoken about…what’s interesting also, is that this was reported on several radio shows. It’s interesting that my jugular is the jugular that’s been come for…”
