Twitter Slams Timbaland Amid #SurvivingRKelly Over Confessing Love For An Underage Aaliyah

Published: Saturday 5th Jan 2019 by Rashad

As social media commenters continue to discuss ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ the jaw-dropping Lifetime documentary that premiered this week to highlight the longstanding sexual abuse allegations that surround singer R. Kelly, the debate for who is to blame rages on.

From fingers pointed to the alleged victims’ parents to members of Kelly’s entourage and more, the conversation – which is also fueled by a segment of the program dedicated to the ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ star’s documented relationship with the late songstress Aaliyah when she was underage – recently took an interesting turn thanks to unearthed archived footage of another of her producers – Timbaland (born Timothy Mosley).

Mosley, who credits his contributions to the singer’s 1996 album, ‘One In a Million,’ as his breakthrough work, also revealed in a 2011 episode of E!’s “True Hollywood Story” that he fell in love with her shortly after their initial meeting.  The problem?  She was only 16…

“When I first met Aaliyah — it’s time for the world to hear this, I’m gonna give a little secret — I was in love with her,” Timbaland admits in the video seen above. He went on to explain that he never acted on those feelings.  “I said, ‘She [is] just a baby, I’m old. I’m just gonna be her brother. Oh man, I was fightin’, I was fightin’ a lot — a big war. But I loved Aaliyah.’


Timbo eventually confessed he loved the young singer so much that he married a woman primarily because of her resemblance to the ‘4 Page Letter’ singer.  Fast forward to 2019, due to the hot topic of sexual abuse and predatory behavior – undoubtedly pushed to the forefront thanks to the R. Kelly documentary – has fans examining the acts and statements of other high profile male figures.

Twitter pulled Timbaland’s card. See some of the reactions below:

    Okay just like the economy, Twitter and any other social media site needs to be shut down because people have Way TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS REACHING FOR BS that’s not There and this is a prime example so now everyone went from attacking her mother to now her friend because “quote” he revealed a few years ago to having a crush on her yet never acted on anything else besides a friendship. I’m done ! God take the wheel please because obviously ya swirling out of control out here.

      And to top or add now people coming for Jay Z at the time being older coming for Beyonce !? ?? people just love to cause some s***

      • Whoops ?????‍♀️ January 5, 2019

        Exactly, But WHERREEEEE were these people when Kylie and Tyga were together in the not too distant past???? None of this collective outrage was ANYWHERE to be found and they got away with it. I wasn’t really here for this racialized conversation before but damn. These people really do come out in droves when it’s time to vilify black people. And what’s strange is that WE ALL knew girls in high shool who had relationships of this nature. When is that ever gonna be addressed? Or is that not the same?

        @Whoops – Lies! Plenty of people said the SAME THING about Kylie and Tyga and they blamed Kris saying that she was pimping out her daughter. You read too many black blogs. In regards to your other statement about girls in high school dating OLDER guys, that was DISGUSTING ADULT LIKE OR “GROWN” behavior then and it’s the SAME now.

    I’m with Humor Mike. Timbaland never acted on his feelings and it was a different mind set then.

    Different era where alot of girls like Aaliyah looked older than their age and men never had a problem with having s** with underage girls. Not excusing it but alot of men didn’t take it serious back then.

    • Whoops ?????‍♀️ January 5, 2019

      Not a different era sis. If anything these 15 year olds today look 35 plus. And high school girls have and STILL date grown men, and vice versa. That’s always been a thing, people on Twitter are just now caring about it when they wanna care about it.

    I’m sorry but 16 ain’t s*** when the man 24, I know b****** who was 16 f***** 35 yr olds! Oh hey Jay & Bey!! It’s okay to find a younger girl prettier but to “ACT” on that is a totally different thing!! How come all these older men wanted Aaliyah huh?? Maybe she was fast! IDK but y’all are trying to drag the wrong ppl so chill tf out

    Wow! I’ve always been a Timberland Fan. Especially after he crossed over to pop! Those we’re definitely his golden years. (In my opinion.) I have also been a fan of Aaliyah’s for as long as i can remember and I haven’t even reached 30 yet!

    It definitely takes a lot of courage to admit your feelings for someone that you know/known personally.

    For Timberland to admit that, I see courage. But that was also a stupid decision. He definitely should have kept those comments to himself. Maybe he wanted to get it off his chest. Get closure. But what people don’t realize is that we grow every single day. Something you would have done 10 years ago, you wouldn’t do now. And people will judge you for the slightest things.

    Maybe he didn’t care but he should have saved himself the trouble and his wife by keeping his comments to himself. I’m sure Timberland is feeling a certain type of way because of Aaliyah’s relationship with R Kelly. Maybe he felt as if he could have done something to stop it.

    We forget that Timberland is 7 years older then Aaliyah. While R Kelly is 12-13 years older then Aaliyah.

    Timberland stated in that interview he was 400 pounds back then.
    Which means he was probably insecure.

    He called himself an old man. When he wasn’t at the time. (He knew the gap in their age.)

    He had to fight the urge. (I work in the law field so I see many men & women that don’t.)

    I’m not taking up for anyone, but I’ve seen numerous young women date men who have a ten year age gap. Its definitely not uncommon. I’ve seen men go to jail for dating young women who lied about their age. (With proof)

    My point is, there is a difference between someone wanting to be with another person and a person who doesn’t.
    Yes R Kelly was too old for her. I agree.

    For Timberland feelings are something you can’t control. It’s how you act on those feelings is what counts.
    R kelly knew better. Aaliyah never came out to bash him. She never said she was unhappy, & She married him. That should tell everyone something. People aren’t always who they portray to be.

    But yeah. R kelly nasty as f*** tho.

      Aaliyah legally COULDNT speak on him. That’s why.
