Damon Dash talked about Aaliyah’s mindset after the annulment of her controversial marriage to R. Kelly back in 1994 in the soon to be released follow up installment of Lifetime’s docuseries about the infamous singer.
According to TMZ, in the clip of Dash’s interview, the former music mogul reveals that Aaliyah wanted nothing to do with Kelly after the marriage was annulled, claiming she wanted to keep Kelly “the f*** away” from her.
“Aaliyah was like the sacrificial lamb for all of that, bro. She was a good, good soul, a good girl, wasn’t even really resentful; like let that man live, but keep him the f**k away from me…that’s all she wanted,” Dash told the interviewer.
Kelly’s former manager Demetrius Smith admitted to unwittingly helping Kelly obtain a fake ID for the then 15-year-old Aaliyah a day before the wedding took place, a claim that R. Kelly and his legal team continue to deny.
Dash also called Kelly “disgusting” for marrying a child.
The sequel to last year’s explosive documentary premieres Thursday night on Lifetime.
