Aaliyah’s Mom: Backup Singer Is ‘Lying’ About R. Kelly Sex Allegations With My Daughter!

Published: Wednesday 2nd Jan 2019 by Rashad

Just two days ahead of the premiere of Lifetime’s controversial docuseries, ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ it hit the press that one of the R&B king’s backup singers claims she saw him molest the young singer Aaliyah Haughton.

As we reported here, the vocalist – Jovante Cunningham – said Kelly “did things that an adult should not be doing with a child,” as she recounted witnessing him in bed with the then-underage Haughton.

When the story reached the desk of Diane Haughton, Aaliyah’s mother, she offered a fiery statement to defend her daughter’s honor.  Claiming she’s fed up with Baby Girl’s name being “dragged through the mud with lies” as it relates to Kelly, Diane had some serious words for Cunningham.  Read them below:


“The woman and so-called back up singer in the forthcoming ‘Surviving’ documentary that described seeing, meeting, or ever breathing the same air as my daughter, Aaliyah, is lying and is a liar,” Haughton’s statement, which began circulating the Internet on Jan. 2, reads. “My husband and I were always on tour with her and at interviews and every place she went throughout her entire career. Whoever this woman is, I have never seen her before anywhere on planet Earth, until now.”

“These lies and fabrications cannot be tolerated and allowed to be spewed from the forked tongue of saboteurs of Aaliyah’s legacy,” Haughton continues. “Shame on all those involved in this project who thought it kosher to drag Aaliyah’s name into a situation that has nothing to do with her today.”

    I don’t believe the mother, she stated they were always together? So was she there when Aaliyah married R.Pedophilia?! ??‍♂️ Was it a marriage to get her those R&B coins?!!??‍♂️

      SHUT UP QUEEN! You are so DUMB and closed minded. You are a NOBODY and Aaliyah’s mother has NO motivation to lie about this unlike that money hungry Jovante Cunningham. There are NUMEROUS holes in Jovante’s story like where were her and Aaliyah’s parents at, why would their parents allow them to tour alone, why did Kelly want Aaliyah and not Jovante if he is this teenage preying monster? Just STFU next time dumbo.

        But he has a good point. Something had to go on without her knowledge or how else would she have gotten married at 15! We have to talk about things to stop the pathology.

        It is quite common in black households for late teenagers to have older boyfriends or girlfriends and the parents know about it. Aaliyah’s parents knew R. Kelly. He was her producer, songwriter, mentor, sound engineer, “best friend”, boyfriend, and sugar daddy. Hell you can watch the following RECEIPT and tell immediately they were a couple so I highly doubt her parents would not know they were a couple when the body language was so strong even on TV. The real reason they got married is that Aaliyah was pregnant with his baby so the marriage is not really a big secret but rather what happened to the baby?

        Jasmine I’ve never seen this, thank you. This was super uncomfortable to watch. I’m so glad I stopped supporting R Kelly decades ago, as soon as I found out they were married. SMH and barf

        Girl STOP it is not common for 14 year old girls to be in relationships with men in their late 20’s. Don’t try to put the Black community in a MF’in BOX h**!!! Growing up, I knew younger teens who messed around with older teens unbeknownst to their parents, but NEVER guys in their late 20’s. FOH!

      • Jasmine January 3, 2019

        LUCKI. Hold up! PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO RECEIPT ABOVE on Video Soul where the interviews openly ask Aaliyah and R. Kelly if they were a couple in 1994 as if it would be perfectly the norm if they were together? Do you see how comfortable all 4 of them are during the interview? BET Video Soul represented the black community in the 90s. In the video RECEIPT above Aaliyah is 15 and R. Kelly is 27. Just like I am able to see your point of view open your mind to being able to accept other people’s point of views. If everyone thought alike there would have been tremendous backlash after the video receipt above yet there wasn’t. BET Video Soul was a top long-running show in the 90s.

        Fried Chicken

        Level: Easy
        Yield: 16 pieces
        Total: 50 min
        Prep: 15 min
        Inactive: 15 min
        Cook: 20 min

        2 whole free-range, organic chickens
        Vegetable oil of choice, for frying the chicken
        6 cups all-purpose flour
        5 tablespoons salt
        4 tablespoons ground black pepper
        2 tablespoons garlic powder
        1 tablespoon onion powder
        2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
        2 cups buttermilk


        Cut the whole chickens into 4 b******, 4 thighs, 4 legs and 4 wings and set aside.
        Preheat your oil, in either a heavy pan on the stove or a deep-fryer, to 325 degrees F.
        In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne pepper until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.
        Pour the buttermilk into another bowl large enough for the chicken to be immersed in the buttermilk.
        Prepare your dredging station. Place your chicken in a bowl. Next to that, your bowl of buttermilk, and next to that, your dry mixture.
        Take your b******, lightly dust them with your flour mixture, then dip them in the buttermilk until they are coated, and then place them in the flour mixture.
        Take the b****** that are in the flour mixture and aggressively push the flour mixture into the wet chicken. Make sure that the chicken in very thoroughly coated, or you will not achieve the crust and crunch you are looking for. Gently place the b****** in your hot oil.
        Next, repeat the dredging steps with your other pieces of chicken in this order: thigh, leg then wing.
        When you place the last wing into the fryer, you should have 16 pieces of chicken in the oil. Set a timer for 15 minutes.
        After 15 minutes, take a probe thermometer and check the temperature of a breast. If it reads 180 degrees F, all of your chicken is done. (Keep in mind that it will continue to cook after it has been removed from the fryer.)
        Remove the chicken from the oil and let it drain for 5 minutes. Let cool for an additional 10 minutes before serving.

      It’s her guilty conscience talking Danyiel. She must think they failed has parents, her daughter was abused right under her watchful eye and if the abuse is proved everybody starting with her pastor and ending on the bag lady from down the street will look down on her and judge her.
      And as her daughter is not here to confirm or dismiss this she prefer to say it’s all lies, her daughter was never abused and died a virgin.
      It’s sad when there are receipts and lots of them (the marriage, all the people around them that saw strange things, all the antecedents of this Pedoman..) and she simply denies it.
      Just cause there aren’t solid evidence against him she chooses to dismiss all of it to keep a clean conscience. That’s just wrong, her guilty soul will burn in Hell if she don’t repent before death.
      I pray for her daughter and that god gives this PedoKelly what he deserves!

  2. JUST SAYING January 3, 2019

    I agree with the mother, however it is a fact that R Kelly DID marry Aaliyah at 16 years old. Im sure the parents werent there for that hence the secrecy. So maybe you werent there for EVERY interview and tour. That doesnt make it the parents fault though. Just saying.

  3. discernment saves lives January 3, 2019

    If you read closely and compare to other statements, this seems like r Kelly himself had this statement written. it is too similar to his own style and “voice” in previous statements his illiterate self had his team write for him. I can smell him all over this fabricated statement. paid Aaliyah’s mom to go along with it and to take credit for the statement HE provided her. wake up people. smarten up, get more literate and discerning.

    • Jasmine January 3, 2019

      LMAO All I can say is this is some hot ghetto tea and I’m enjoying every last sip. I’m about to chase it with some henny and make a hot toddy.

        Ummm Mrs. Jasmine Imma need U not to be drinking no henny. That aint got for the baby girl. Imma drink some for u. LOL

      • Jasmine January 3, 2019

        LMAO. Girl it was a joke but a little henny would not hurt. I don’t drink alcohol at all though. I don’t like the taste of it.

    Aaliyah’s mother has endured enough. All she’s saying is that she and Aaliyah’s late father traveled with Aaliyah PROFESSIONALLY (tour, interviews, radio, live performances, etc.) Diane never said she followed Aaliyah everywhere in her personal and private life. Yes, young teens are afforded some amount of privacy and freedom in America… big shocker.

  5. Caleb January 3, 2019

    But they were married when she was underage so of course it has something to do with Aaliyah.

    • The Royal Highness RASPUTIA (Pronounced ‘Rah’ – ‘SPEW’ – ‘Cha’) ~ (Nickname: The Royal Queen B) January 3, 2019

      Aaliyah is not here to speak on it RIP and we all know hos will do just about anything for a little money so it makes sense that this ho Jovante Cunningham is telling lies for a little Lifetime. Now, Aaliyah’s mom ain’t getting no check for telling the truth so I believe her and not that ho Jovante. What kind of name is that anyway? Sound like a boy’s name.

  6. Aaliyah’n since Star Search BOO January 3, 2019

    I’ve been standing for Aaliyah since day 1 in the late 80’s when I first saw her on Star Search. I too have ALWAYS QUESTIONED HOW SHE AS A MINOR COULD HAVE MARRIED R KELLY. So, as 1 of Aaliyah’s DEAREST FANS; I will be watching this special to finally understand her truth truth and help Baby Girl achieve some sort of Justice.

  7. robert January 3, 2019
