Diane Houghton, the mother of the late singer and R. Kelly protege Aaliyah, is shutting down accusations made about her daughter in Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly docuseries.
"So it just so happened we were all laying in our bunks and the curtains are open, everybody's communicating, laughing…when the (room) door flew open on the bus. Robert was having sex with Aaliyah," Cunningham said.
Houghton issued a pointed statement slamming Cunningham and the series:
In 1994, Kelly, then 27, secretly married Aaliyah, who was 15 at the time. According to a marriage license published by Vibe magazine, her age was listed as 18. The marriage was annulled in 1995.
Aaliyah died in a plane crash in 2001. She was 22 years old.
