Kelly Rowland’s Abusive Ex-Boyfriend Named As Music Manager Cudda Love!


Last week, Kelly Rowland released a new single, “Dirty Laundry”, revealing for the first time her envy of former band mate Beyonce Knowles and the abuse she endured from a former boyfriend.

Although no one is entirely surprised about her jealousy of the fellow singer, it was shocking to discover Rowland had been in an abusive relationship. In the song, she notes, it’s been nearly 10 years since that relationship ended but its garnered much interest as to who this guy was. In fact, some suspected it was the singer’s ex-fiance Roy Williams because the two dated and were engaged between 2004-2005.

However, Williams quickly debunked those allegations with the tweet, “So Kelly has a new song. Called #DirtyLaundry.. & what ever she’s saying in it ppl thinks it’s me. #wow #imnottheonlypersonshedated #wasntme”. So if it wasn’t Roy who was it?

Well, after stating he hadn’t been the abuser he did let it slip on who the suspecting abuser was. When someone tweeted him about thinking Kelly’s abuser was actually Cudda Love, Williams did reply back with #bingo but thats not my place to speak on it..”


But who is Cudda Love?

Reference the photo below. Cudda Love is the guy standing in the middle wearing the red sweat shirt. He was also href=”” target=”_blank”>Nelly‘s manager at the time rumors emerged that Kelly was actually dating the rapper. That was sometime between 2002 and 2003 giving us a 10 year span of when the relationship may have ended.


It’s also noted on Kelly’s 2007 album, ‘Ms. Kelly’, that she couldn’t marry Williams because she was still in love with her ex on the single, “Still In Love With My Ex”.

Cudda has also been linked to singer Teairra Mari.
