One of the main reasons the “Bump N’ Grind” singer filed his latest claim -according to his attorney, Steven Greenberg- is because of the recent interview Drea did with their daughter, where Drea threw shots at Kellz. In the interview, Drea said that if R. Kelly -who is currently claiming he’s broke- can’t earn enough bread to pay her the monthly $20K child support, he should get a job at Del Taco. However, Greenberg suggests that Drea may wanna be quiet, because R. Kelly could expose a lot about her:

Greenberg says, “Kelly has not made one disparaging remark about Drea publicly — and there’s plenty he could say.” Greenberg added, “Drea has two strands of income — child support from R. Kelly and blasting R. Kelly publicly.”

R. Kelly Is Pissed Over Drea’s “Growing Up Hip Hop” Statements
As we previously reported, Drea and the three children she shares with R. Kelly are currently on this season of Growing Up Hip Hop, where they’re seen discussing the trials and tribulations that come with being connected to R Kelly.

However, Kellz’s attorney says Drea also breached their contract via the reality show:

Greenberg, according to docs, also says Drea violated the agreement talking about the marriage on the reality show ‘Growing Up Hip Hop.’ Kelly also wants her to stop running to the media and dragging him through the mud.

Drea Kelly Fires Back...
It didn’t take long for Drea Kelly and her defense attorney, Alison Motta, to respond to R. Kelly’s latest legal request, and they’re accusing R. Kelly of doing the exact same thing- breaching their marital settlement agreement:

Via TMZ- “Robert has not been complying with that provision of their agreement for years, even put out a book, ‘Soulacoaster’ with details of their marriage and divorce — he essentially waived that provision and is now using it as a vindictive sword to punish her for asserting her right in domestic relations court and forcing him to comply with his financial obligations. … He can no longer control her with physical abuse so he’s resorting to methods of control and punishment that can be inflicted from afar.”
