In a new preview of the upcoming Lifetime documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, a former background singer of R. Kelly's says that she witnessed a then-27-year-old Kelly having sex with a then-15-year-old Aaliyah.
“We were out on the road with Aaliyah. On a tour bus, there really aren’t many confined spaces. When you get on the bus there are bunks and so these bunks have little curtains you can pull at night if you don’t want anybody to see you sleeping. 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. Things that an adult should not be doing with a child. I can’t stress to you how people are still suffering behind things that went on 20 years ago.”
The documentary’s first episode, is airing Thursday, January 3 on Lifetime.
