Aaliyah’s name has been recently being entered around the news as of late behind her alleged relationship with R. Kelly who is facing numerous sex abuse charges in a court of law in Brooklyn, New York, as well as her uncle reporting that he would be releasing, new unreleased music of the ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number’ star, however the man that she gave her heart to, who still rides for the love his life, Aaliyah, today is Hip Hop record producer Damon Dash.
