New ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ Doc Alleges He Silenced Aaliyah With NDA After Their Marriage Annulment

Published: Wednesday 4th Jan 2023 by Rashad

As R.Kelly serves a 30-year sentence for sex crimes (and awaits sentencing for being convicted of similar crimes in other states), the embattled music legend continues to lose in the court of public opinion as more shocking allegations about his past surface thanks to the third and final installment of the groundbreaking ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ documentary.

Credited with fueling the latest round of investigations into the singer’s criminal past, the Lifetime series has not only garnered some of the network’s highest ratings but also earned praise for shining an overdue spotlight on his relationship with R&B songstress Aaliyah as well as other reported victims.

The late GRAMMY nominee is undoubtedly the most famous of the young women attached to accusations of his sexual abuse over the last 30 years as the two were illegally wed in 1994 when she was only 15-years-old (Kelly was 27).

In the latest installment of ‘Surviving’ (which aired January 2 and January 3), new allegations were made that Kelly forced Aaliyah and her family into silence through a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) following the annulment of their marriage.  In the ‘I Believe I Can Fly‘ singer’s 2022 federal trial, the NDA was brought up in the courtroom as evidence.


“Prior to R. Kelly’s trial, journalist Jim DeRogatis — the reporter who first broke news of R. Kelly’s sexual abuse more than two decades ago — uncovered the NDA that R. Kelly used against Aaliyah. A few years ago, DeRogatis spoke about the documents that were leaked to him, stating in an interview that the annulment and Aaliyah’s legal claim against R. Kelly had been sealed.

‘It’s a harrowing document,’ he said. ‘A non-disclosure agreement on both her part and Kelly’s, vowing not to pursue further legal claims for physical abuse. So, it wasn’t just an underage sexual relationship, he hit her, allegedly, according to that court document.'”

While Aaliyah’s family declined to comment on the matter, people close to Kelly at the time of the marriage confirm the NDA existed in exchange for a financial incentive.

Gem Pratt, former friend and security guard for Kelly, claims Aaliyah’s father was furious over the marriage, forced its annulment, and entered a contractual arrangement with the ’12 Play’ hitmaker that stated the family wouldn’t press charges if they were sold the rights to his first three albums.

As of time reported, reps from Kelly’s camp have not responded to these claims.

      Much unlike “The Duggars” 19 and counting… incest?? 🤮

      • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 January 4, 2023

        Incests like Killion Moyo, an African healer who married his 14-year-old daughter and r**** many underage African boys and girls, YUCK!

      • yup! January 4, 2023

        Well you seem like the product of it. Or is that your self-hating, racist, unaccomplished, insignificant, waste of life I am sensing?? Lol either way, you’re absolute trash. I’m sure your empty bed reminds you of this.

      • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 January 4, 2023

        Oh, boo-boo, honey. I am happy and doing very well in life. I have white privilege, so you know I’m doing well. I am not a darkie, so I can never be a product of anything you claim I am. I can tell that you are uneducated because after I hit you with facts about your Arficain brother, you hit me with your opinion. Why don’t you just stick to one user name? Your bad grammar tells me who you are. My bed is never empty, because your momma is always in it every night, licking my 𝒶𝓇𝓈𝑒𝒽𝑜𝓁𝑒 clean after I take a 𝓼𝓱𝓲𝓽.

      • yup! January 4, 2023

        Hush up haunkie you have no privilege except for talking to me and the privilege is certainly yours. You spoke no facts as you never do. You’re a reject in life and I know this because you reside here, all day EVERY DAY 🤣 Let’s see your racism in real time and show us a video of YOU demonstrating to the world what you think. That’s what a real Klansman and your father would do. They taught you not to be a coward sir, MAN UP! And nobody wants to lick your flat @$$ or care anything about your hard choppy incomplete stools (you people and your fetishes)

      • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 January 5, 2023

        What’s a “haunkie”? Poor spelling and bad grammar—I expected nothing less from an uneducated ghetto darkie. You are not white, so you would never know what it is like to have such great privilege as I do. I dropped some facts by naming Killion Moyo, an African healer who married his 14-year-old daughter. I showed you how much your people adore Incest. YIKES! Let your daddy know that he’s next to lick my 𝒶𝓇𝓈𝑒𝒽𝑜𝓁𝑒 clean after I 𝓼𝓱𝓲𝓽 and he can then rub it all over your momma’s face to add some tone to her skin, he can then kiss her 🤮. Darkie fetishes. YUCK! 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

    Now I see why her mom is so silent..either way I don’t blame Aaliyah for anything 💁 RIP

    • Madelyn January 4, 2023

      Aaliyah’s family and team FAILED her. I would never blame a 14/15 year old girl for being groomed by a 30 year old man. I hope her soul is resting peacefully.

    Why would they make a deal to the rights of his first three albums? That’s not having your underage Daughter’s best interests at heart, that’s having your bank account’s best interests at heart – it shouldn’t be about money but about justice regarding your vulnerable child being abused.

    He’s in prison virtually for life and she’s dead. The story has been milked for all it’s worth. Time to move on.

  7. eric January 4, 2023

    What R. Kelly and his people did then and now is create cover stories and blame the victims, so I don’t know why anyone would be quick to believe what an alleged friend of his has to say about the motives and actions of Aaliyah and her family. They’ve always been a private family and they are afforded the right to not entertain every word from Kelly and his people.
