Talking about the alleged attack, which she says occurred in the back of a Hummer: 'He’d taken this left arm and pulled it behind me and his weight was on my body, but he didn’t realize his forearm was on my neck.'

'So as he’s pressing down, my breathing is getting laboured.'

R Kelly and Andrea Kelly divorced in 2009 after 13 years of marriage. R Kelly was previously married to singer Aaliyah, however, she was 15 and he was 27 - that's an age gap! 

During the interview, Andrea also recalled a time when R Kelly 'hogtied' her, only allowing her to escape after he fell asleep.
