R. Kelly‘s lawyer has threatened to sue Lifetime if it doesn’t pull the plug on the docu-series it created to expose his alleged abuse of women and children.
This, as Aaliyah’s mother faces criticism for claiming that any talk of him molesting the performer when she was a minor is nonsense.
Full story below…
Aaliyah’s family turned a blind eye to collect the coins. Everybody ain’t lying. Mom, you can have several NAPS, seats aint good enough. We don’t believe you.

The must-see series begins tonight and sees psychologists link arms with Kelly’s victims to discuss his perverse antics and how they became susceptible to them. Joining them? Friends and relatives who say they have proof that he is guilty of the crimes he is accused of committing.
Now, as Aaliyah’s mother has been criticised by fans who say is refusing to acknowledge the severity of the abuse her daughter was forced to endure, Kelly’s lawyer is threatening to sue.
Aaliyah mom is hell bent on protecting her name too. You feel guilty for leaving your child with a man. Don’t try and rewrite history to save face. You weren’t with your daughter all the time. Hell she got married without you so we know that’s not true.

That statement from Aaliyah’s mom is a lot. But your daughter married Kelly at 15 so of course her name is gonna be brought up in that doc. Their relationship is evidence of his predatory nature

Diane was a stage mom… ever see One of those little girl beauty contests? That was Aaliyah’s mom

Kelly’s lawyer, Brian Nix, fired off a legal letter — obtained by TMZ — warning the network that its “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary is packed with lies. Nix threatens to file a federal lawsuit Thursday — the same day Lifetime’s set to air the special — if the network doesn’t relent.
Their empty threats have done nothing to stop Lifetime from moving forward with the documentary.
I’m not sure if that statement Aaliyah’s mom released is real or not, but to say Aaliyah had “nothing” to do with R. Kelly is false.
Secondly, if you (her mom) were with her “every place & everywhere” she went her whole career – how did she end up married as a minor?

Be sure to tune in tonight.
Aaliyah’s mom doesn’t want to relive guilt for what happened. So she’s lashing out and I understand that. But to call someone a liar when you know full well it’s true is insane. Especially after there are interviews from her confirming what transpired between RK and Aaliyah.

He’s threatening folks but where was these folks during his pedophilia days on that video?!!??♂️
I wished people had better reading comprehension skills. The mom NEVER stated Aaliyah and R. Kelly were not a couple. She simply denounced Jovante”s depiction of her daughter and confirmed that Jovante is lying. It is degrading to project a false narrative on anyone that they were having sexx on a bus…that is sleasy, ratchet, and low class.
People are taking her comment and putting words in the moms mouth. That is not right.
This woman was a pimp she sat around counting the money her daughter made while she was being abused by a guy on his late 20’s.
She should be ashamed of herself. Her job was to love and protect her daughter and not being silent and complicit but money talked laughter.
I hope she’ll never have peace while she lives.
I agree with everything you said except for the “abuse” part. I think you will find varying views among people on what constitutes abuse. Kelly was not physically abusing anyone nor has anyone ever claimed he physically abused them. The alleged abuse Kelly inflicts is mental, which is a very very gray area.
It is quite common in black families for teenagers to date older boyfriends and girlfriends and no one ever talks about it. Often times, the parents themselves were in the same situation (one was a teenager and the other was already an adult. They dated and then got married eventually). Even, in other countries / continents like the UK, Africa, China, and Japan IT IS QUITE THE NORM where the legal age of consent is 16, 11-12, 14, and 13 respectively. Again, no one ever talks about this even though that is the law in those places.
If my teenage daughter was dating a young man in his 20s who was rich, talented, and had the means to absolutely make her a star I would be okay with him dating her as long as he respects her and never physically abuses her. My parents were okay with me dating older men that were successful when I was a teenager too. That is what I believe happened here with Aaliyah’s parents. That does not make me or her parents pimps. It just means that our views on life are different than others. Often times, the people adamantly against a teenager dating an adult do not have children of their own so they are only qualified to speak on it from a technical perspective but certainly not from a life experience perspective.
@Jasmine – YES IT DOES make them pimps. The fact that you CONFIRMED that your parents were OK with such things, which I think you are lying about your entire lame @ss life but that’s neither here nor there, just CONFIRMS what people have said about PARENTS PERMITTING disgusting behaviors with their children for fame/money.
Superstar I have NO REASON TO LIE. My second bf in high school was 24 and I was 16 and he was in the NFL. My parents were fine with it and we all attended some of his games. I have two aunts that married older wealthy men and had dated them when they were still in high school.
Neither Aaliyah’s parents, my parents, or myself are pimps because a pimp forces people to have sexx with others for money. Nobody forced anybody to do anything here. I’m sorry but you are projecting your own ideology onto a situation as law instead of being open to the FACT that people have varying ideologies and views which may differ from yours. That does NOT make them “disgusting”, “pimps”, “idiots”, or any other derrogatory name you call them.
I always come with RECEIPTS. Here is a video which clearly shows (from the body language) that Aaliyah and R. Kelly were a couple. Furthermore, analyze how the interviewers ask them if they were a couple as if it were the norm for a 15 yo to be dating a 27 yo (video was in 1994). Nobody is “pimping” Aaliyah here. She was in love with her mentor.
Defying Gravity & Superstar you all know this Troll girl here doesn’t exist and was exposed last year (btw she always protect RPedo at all cost) that’s why I choose not to engage with her.
But if she wants I left here a delicious Recipe of Clam chowder!
New England Clam Chowder
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 celery stalks (reserve tender leaves) trimmed, quartered lengthwise, then sliced into 1/4-inch pieces
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
2 (10-ounce) cans chopped clams in juice
1 cup heavy cream
2 bay leaves
1 pound Idaho potatoes, cut into 1/2- inch cubes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and celery and saute until softened, mixing often. Stir in the flour to distribute evenly. Add the stock, juice from 2 cans of chopped clams (reserve clams), cream, bay leaves, and potatoes and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, stirring consistently (the mixture will thicken), then reduce the heat to medium-low and cook 20 minutes, stirring often, until the potatoes are nice and tender. Then add clams and season to taste with salt and pepper, cook until clams are just firm, another 2 minutes.
Serve it to the family and hope the like it!
Samantha I AM NOT A TROLL and NOBODY EXPOSED ME ON ANYTHING because there is nothing to expose me on dumbo. I have not done anything wrong. Why are TROLLs like you so bothered by my opinions? I guess you are too dumb to realize that everyone is not going to think or act like you do in life.
BTW you can save your ghetto recipes. I cook 5 star meals for my family not some trash soup dishes that you feast on. Keep on seething and staying mad all because we don’t see eye to eye. Ain’t sh|t u can do about my opinions.
Her mother is complicit! She knew everything…
If you let your daughter be molested and turn a blind eye just out of greed you can’t come and say you’re always keeping her safe!
What about when she was married to a P***? You pimp your daughter Lady now sit your fat greedy ass and repent on your sins!
I didn’t want to believe it but now I see that it’s true and I now understand why some people believe the family approved of the disgusting “marriage. “ this woman and her husband knew what that monster was doing to their child and didn’t care because they were making money. She needs to repent.
How the f*ck do either of you know, were you there? Or are you just going by what you saw in that trash movie that wendy williams did? Sit please.
Honey she married while she was a minor and wasn’t on age of consent and he mother says she was always accompanied by them?
Something here smells fishy..that If you believe she and this p*** Kelly never consummated the marriage or had s** before! Looool
With his s** history that’s not very credible 😉
And if you believe this you’re even more guilable than her parents.
He abused a little girl and her parents knew or didn’t wanted to know and he should be jailed by this.
Dirty sick P***
If it looks like a perv, smells like a perv and talks like a perv he must be a perv ?
Chloe in black households it is quite common for late teenagers to date older boyfriends or girlfriends. Please REREAD the mother’s statements because you and a lot of people are projecting here!!!!!!!! The mother NEVER stated R. Kelly and Aaliyah were not a couple. She simply stated that they never had sexx in the back of a tour bus and that Jovante is lying. Remember this is a documentary. The more salacious they make scenes out to be the more interesting the documentary will be. There are too many holes in Jovante’s story. Now did Aaliyah likely have s** in hotel rooms and at R. Kelly’s mansion? Yes. The mother NEVER denied that!
She should be with her daughter in that plane crash. You old h** you sold your daughter now you’re calling liar to someone? Your silence is the real crime here.
Naaa hope she lives til she’s 100 and die with the good guiltiest conscience ever and alone, after spending the remaining money her daughter left her. An angel died and the parents who pimped her and sold her to a adult men lived is at times like this I think is God is real 🙁
I miss Aaliyah. I love her music, personality, and celebrity. She truly was an Angel.
Her claim that she was always with Aaliyah was clearly not true, since he married Aaliyah. So one must ask the question, “. How does she KNOW that they did not have s** on the tour bus?” There are so many lies that could have been told about the tour bus. They could have said that he was running a train on her on the tour bus, or that he had ten women sexing her or that he had her doing drugs n the bus. This woman seems perfectly credible in saying that he was doing things to her that a grown man should not be doing with a child.
And it is not common for black girls to date grown men. This is something that happens in White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian households that are in peril.
R.KELLY is a perv. How about Chris Stokes and what he did to B2K – chris stokes molested/r_aped all those boys and he’s walking around in his Mansion THESE PERVS GET ALWAY WITH HURTING CHILDREN. JAIL JAIL JAIL. GET THEM OFF THE STREETS. I DON’T CARE HOW MUCH MONEY THEY HAVE. P***
This woman and her husband are as guilty as RPedo.
This is sad as disgust me so much, parents who sold their daughter do a paedophile just to make bucks gosh!
The 3 of them deserve to be behind bars poor Aaliyah may her soul lay in peace!
Sit down please. You don’t have the first clue what you’re talking about.
Gezz SMH tell us all where you under their mattress while he was R A P I N G her…or was you hidden on the tour bus chatting to her parents while he was molesting her…you should take a sit
Have several sits SMH, hope you never have to have a kid on this situation only then you’ll see if you ignore every evidence like her parents or if you’ll be a real parent and fight to save your kid of sick men like this.
Typical. A bunch of immature twitter jackasses that would rather believe gossip than the truth. Half of those people were either babies or not even born yet when all this happened, so twitter needs to STFU and have several seats. Diane Haughton has no reason to lie, twitter is just full of retards with nothing better to do than entertain gossip,
Wait so you can have your opinion that everybody is innocent and he never abused her, her parents never knew and it was all respect no s** but twitter can’t say the opposite stuff without you calling them retards who gossip all day.
Is because people like you look the other way and have to have 100% evidence before intervening that so many girls are molested and so many creeps like these are free.
Is normal to you a adult man to marry a teenager without her parents know?
If sparkle in there it’s true
I miss her music
SIck little old man all your defense is falling..all the people you paid during years and years are leaving and telling the truth and you’re scared…you’re like Bill Cosby or Weinstein you have to pay to all your crimes…
Comprehension is key. Diane said she traveled with Aaliyah for everything that pertained to her CAREER; that means concert and promotional tours, radio interviews, etc. She never said she was with Aaliyah for every minute of her private and personal life. If you want to find the liar in the room, it’s the person who says they never did anything sneaky at 15. We’ve all done things our parents didn’t know about. Diane clearly didn’t approve of things once she did find out about it, hence the indefinite split between Aaliyah and R. Kelly. They agreed not to talk about it and they have honored that agreement for well over 20 years in the interest of Aaliyah who wanted to focus on her dream. The best way to defend Aaliyah in her absence is to honor her wishes and not be cold and insensitive toward a family that has had to endure a never ending nightmare. You have no merit to make accusations as if you walked in Aaliyah and Diane’s shoes. Diane and Michael are the only two people on this earth who can speak for Aaliyah. Everyone else can shut up.
not guilty….hayy king of RnB should be back on radio ….yes sue them kelly stop tem from this
Guilty as hell but probably will never be jailed just like Woody Allen, Trump or Kevin Spacey.
These pedos have a lot of power and pay Millions to shut everyone who knows smth
This Mother turned her back on her Daughter relationship with r Kelly for coins have several seats and stop lying
It is because of stances like the one taken by A’s mother R. Kelly is still allowed to to ruin lives. What a shame! All those big music names, which were offered to speak up and didn’t …shame on you too. go borrow at least 1% of decency from JL!
