She notes, in the single, that it’s been nearly 10 years since getting out of the volatile relationship and people immediately began doing the math. The results came down to her ex-fiancee Roy Williams. The two dated and became engaged between 2004-2005.
However, Williams quickly debunked those rumors when he tweeted, “So Kelly has a new song. Called #DirtyLaundry.. & what ever she’s saying in it ppl thinks it’s me. #wow #imnottheonlypersonshedated #wasntme”. But that doesn’t mean Roy isn’t telling just who the abuser had been.
But who is Cudda Love?
Remember back in 2002 when rumors emerged that Kelly was dating rapper Nelly after recording hit single “Dilemma”? Well, there may have been a reason why the two seemed so close. Cudda Love was actually Nelly’s manager at the time. It makes sense because if the two began dating around 2002, or prior, that would mean the relationship may have very well ended in 2003 before meeting Roy Williams the following year.
In fact, on Kelly’s second solo album, “Ms. Kelly” she gave us some insight on why the relationship with Williams ended on single, “Still In Love With My Ex”. Kelly couldn’t marry Roy because, as the song title suggests, she hadn’t gotten over her ex.
This is the only photo we could find of Cudda Love. He’s the guy posing in the middle in the red sweat shirt.
Cudda has also been linked to singer Teairra Mari.
