LATEST: R Kelly's wife has had a change of heart - she is now seeking to have a restraining order she filed against the troubled R+B singer dismissed.

ANDREA KELLY had submitted in a petition on 2 September (05) that she was at risk of physical abuse, harassment, stalking and interference with her personal liberty at her husband's hands.

She also scrawled on the petition that she didn't want any contact with the IGNITION singer "at all, by any means".

But on Friday (23SEP05), she went to a Chicago, Illinois, court to have the protective order dismissed, reports MTV News.

As well as his slow-moving fight against child pornography charges, R Kelly is in the midst of a legal battle with hip-hop star Jay-Z over their failed Best Of Both Worlds tour last year (04).
