Dame Dash FINALLY Opens Up On Jay Z & Aaliyah Dating Rumors! [VIDEO]

Aaliyah was sadly taken away from us on August of 2001.

Shortly before her passing, she had gotten into a close relationship with Dame Dash to a point they were thinking about getting married.

He told MTV back in 2001,

“We were definitely gonna be married. As soon as she had time, we were getting married — like after ’The Matrix,’ ” he said. “She was the one — she was definitely the one for me. It wasn’t an official proposal, we had just talked about it, you know?”

But before that, she had gotten into a brief relationship with Jay Z, who is now married to Beyoncé as per rumors.

He sat down with Hip Hop Motivation and made a revelation about both former best friend and business partners past relationships with the singer.

“I was going at her, but Jay was going at her. He knew her before I did,” he said. “It was a situation where Aaliyah was the type of girl that would give you a shot. She didn’t care what people thought. So she’ll date you and be your friend. But you might end up in the friend zone… You wasn’t gonna just hit that. At least that was my experience.”
