R. Kelly got teen bride Aaliyah pregnant and also had sex with her mother, claims alleged survivor
Lisa Van Allen, one of the women featured in the documentary 'Surviving R. Kelly', has claimed that Kelly told her that he was sleeping with the late singer's mother as well
One of the "alleged survivors" of singer R. Kelly has claimed that he shared all the details with her on how he got his teen bride, the late R&B singer Aaliyah, pregnant. Lisa Van Allen, one of the women featured in the new documentary 'Surviving R. Kelly', has reportedly claimed that Kelly told her that he was sleeping with the late singer's mother as well. Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, tied the knot with Aaliyah in 1994 when she was just 15 years old and he was 27.
The marriage certificate, however, stated that Aaliyah was 18 at the time and Kelly's tour manager Demetrius Smith even admitted that he helped forge the documents, stated a Mirror Online report. In an interview now with Vlad TV, Lisa claimed that Kelly revealed to her the reasons behind why he married Aaliyah.
She said: "He told me about him and Aaliyah, their situation, they had a pact, pins, and eyeballs. No matter what anyone said or if anyone stuck pins in their eyeballs they would never tell about their relationship, things like that. He told me that they were married, that she was pregnant, that they did doctor up the marriage certificate so she would say she was 18 so they could get married."
Lisa continued: "And the reason they got married was that they felt like if he was married to her and he said he thought she was 18 then he wouldn't be charged if someone found out she was pregnant until they were able to get an abortion and get it annulled."
When the interviewer says that he was made to believe Kelly married the then-teen Aaliyah because she was pregnant with his child, Lisa said: "Yep, that's exactly what happened. And this came out of his mouth. I could take a lie detector test to this, this is what he told me, specifically told me." She then stresses that it's "not a rumor, it's the truth". The interviewer then says that Aaliyah herself never spoke about the marriage to which Lisa says: "They stuck to their pact".
Lisa was then asked if she ever questioned Kelly about why he was having sex with a teen girl around the age of 14 or 15 when he was a decade older. She said: "I never asked him why. I guess because we were kind of in a conversation of just confiding in each other."
She continued: "But he did get a little more in-depth with details of when her mother found out. He actually stayed at their home in Detroit and her mother was actually sexually attracted to him as well and he said when Aaliyah would go to sleep that he would... Now, this is what he said... He said he would go in the living room and he and her would do sexual acts on the couch while Aaliyah was asleep in the bedroom."
The interviewer sounds shocked to hear the claims that Kelly was having sex with both Aaliyah and her mother during the same period. Lisa again claimed that its something the star told her directly.
Dianne Houghton, Aaliyah's mother, previously slammed claims that Kelly had sex with her teen daughter by releasing a statement where she claimed that Jovante Cunningham, Kelly's backup singer who said she saw Kelly and Aaliyah having sex, was lying.
Dianne said: "The woman and so-called backup singer in the forthcoming 'Surviving...' documentary that describes seeing, meeting or ever breathing the same air as my daughter, Aaliyah, is lying and is a liar."
She added, "My husband and I were always on tour with her and at interviews and every place she went throughout her entire career. Whoever this woman is, I have never seen her before anywhere on planet earth, until now."
She continued: "These lies and fabrications cannot be tolerated and allowed to be spewed from the forked tongues of saboteurs of Aaliyah's legacy. My daughter only wanted to realize her dream for sharing her talent with the world and give her all performing on stage, and in front of the camera for the fans she adored so much."
Kelly is currently facing multiple sex abuse charges, including some that are against underage girls. He has so far denied all the allegations and charges that have been brought against him.
