“A good, good soul, a good girl. Wasn’t really even so like resentful,” he said.
‘”‘Let that man live, but keep him the f**k away from me,'” Dash, an ex-boyfriend of the singer, recalled, referencing the way Aaliyah was after the alleged annulment.
Dash also pointed out the way the alleged marriage was talked about.
“That was something that was talked about like it was normal,” he pointed out.
“15, 13, anything under 18 is disgusting,” he added. (RELATED: R. Kelly Pleads Not Guilty To Bribing A Government Official In Order To Marry Aaliyah At Age 15)
As previously reported, the marriage was reportedly annulled a few months later after the singer’s parents found out. Aaliyah died in a plane crash on Aug. 25, 2001. She was 22 years old at the time.
Kelly is currently being held at a Chicago prison and is facing four criminal cases in three different states. The charges against him include racketeering, forced labor, and child pornography.
