R. Kelly’s ex-wife, Andrea “Drea” Kelly, and their kids have signed on to join the cast of the reality show, “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.”

"I don't know what it's like to be R. Kelly's child. I only know what it's like to be his ex-wife," Drea said in a teaser trailer. 

The season just started filming, and Drea has been added to the upcoming cast. And she's not the only new face on the show. MTO News learned that one of R Kelly's teenage mistresses has also agreed to join the show.

Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta focuses on the lives of children of hip-hop stars. Andrea’s three kids with R. Kelly are Joann, Jay and Robert Jr. 

R Kelly's former teenage mistress, while not technically a "child", fits into the age demographic - and has a lot of tea to spill - we're told.

The cast of the show also includes Bow Wow, Lil Mama, and Masika Kalysha and the new season will feature TLC’s T-Boz, Da Brat, Waka Flocka and his wife Tammy Rivera.

The new season, which starts in June, is set to be the best one ever.

During the Lifetime series, Surviving R. Kelly,  Drea Kelly accused her ex husband of isolating and physically abusing her. He has denied the charges.

Kelly, a 45-year-old choreographer, dancer and actress, was married to the now disgraced R&B star from 1996 to 2009. They have three kids together.

From 2012 to 2014, Kelly was on the cast of VH1’s “Hollywood Exes.”
