Word on the curb is…..Andrea “Drea” Kelly, R. Kelly’s ex-wife featured in the recent Lifetime docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly,” will be on the upcoming season of WE-TV’s “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta.”
“I don’t know what it’s like to be R. Kelly’s child. I only know what it’s like to be his ex-wife,” Drea said in a teaser trailer.
The show will return this summer. Bow Wow, an original member of the cast, remains. Others who will appear on the show for the first time: Waka Flocka and Tammy Rivera (formerly of VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”) and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins (who did a reality show on TLC network in 2013.)
During the Lifetime series, Drea Kelly accused her ex husband of isolating and physically abusing her. He has denied the charges.
