But super star singer R. Kelly says it inspired him to divorce his wife of 12 years back in 2009.
In his new memoir, “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me,” he reveals the film showed him that his marriage was dead.
“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,” the 45-year-old writes in the memoir. “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.”
The couple was wed after meeting in 1994 when Andrea Lee, his now former wife, auditioned as a back up dancer for the singer. They were married two years later.
He says in the book that she wasn’t happy and the relationship was in a bad place. In 2005, Andrea filed a protective order against him due to claims of domestic violence. They filed for divorce in 2006, but tried to work things out until the tragic end.
The actress shocked fans when she told people she was engaged. But she really stopped hearts when she said she is celibate.
Meagan and her future husband, Sony Pictures executive and minister Devon Franklin, haven’t seen the bedroom yet because they’re waiting for marriage.
The couple has been public about their decision, hoping to maybe inspire others to do the same.
In an recent interview at T.D. Jakes’ 35 Anniversary Gala in Dallas, Franklin described to Siste2Sister their purpose.
“We want our marriage to be one of truth, one of love, and hopefully model God’s love. In reality we’re not perfect. But we are striving to live a life of Christ. We are striving to be an example of what his life looks like on this earth, and hopefully through our union people will be inspired, people will see themselves in us.
“The relationship is completely different,” said Meagan. “When you know somebody and you know their heart, it’s not even a question about the physical part of it that comes into play completely later on. You really just get a chance to understand what you’re getting. You don’t just want to be with this person on Friday night, but Saturday afternoon too. That’s just icing on the cake.”
