Ya learn something new every day!
R. Kelly is blaming The Notebook for his 2009 divorce.
In his memoir, Soulacoaster, The Diary of Me, R. Kelly recalls seeing the film in tears, realizing his marriage could never compare to the love shared between Noah & Allie:
"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."
Wow… that's actually really sad!
But R.Kelz! Wipe those tears!
Even Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, the actors who played those lovebirds, couldn't make their relationship last.
…and we mourn their love's death every day.
