Dame Dash is supporting the allegations made about R. Kelly raping an underage Aaliyah.
During an appearance on the "That’s F***ed Up Podcast" Wednesday (July 19), Dame Dash was asked about R. Kelly’s relationship with Aaliyah and whether the disgraced R&B singer belongs in prison or not.
“I think he’s where he belongs,” the 52-year-old entrepreneur said. “I know Aaliyah, so I know what he did.” Because he also dated the late singer, Dame Dash added, “I can’t be objective about that, you know what I’m saying? But he definitely seemed like he needed some help.”
Elsewhere in the conversation, he mentioned that one of the reasons he had a falling out with JAY-Z, who he founded Roc-A-Fella Records with, was because the rapper continued to collaborate with R. Kelly regardless of what he knew. “I couldn’t believe he did a project with R. Kelly knowing that he had raped my girl,” he said. “I was like, ‘Just don’t put my name on that, I don’t want no money from that. If it is, put it to Aaliyah foundation'... like they did this shit twice.”
