Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon “Dame” Dash has paid homage to the memory of late R&B girlfriend Aaliyah on social media.
Dash showed love and dished on how much he still cared about Aaliyah on Instagram this past weekend.
Murder Inc. founder Irv Gotti paid his respect to Aaliyah in light of her birthday January 16.
On the singer’s 36th birthday anniversary, Dame Dash remembered his former love.
I can't begin to articulate our connection but we speak daily trust me her birthday represents true love from one soul to another #priceless happy birthday I know in the short time we were on this planet together we laughed more then most couples did in a lifetime probably a couple of lifetimes…that's all we wanted to do was laugh nothing else mattered that was our main connection… We laughed together all day everyday
In 2014, music producer Timbaland defended his publicized social media bashing of a Lifetime film based on Aaliyah’s life.
“I don’t know whose fault it it,” Tim responded when asked about the Lifetime production before saying the fact Aaliyah’s life story would be told for a made-for-TV upset him the most. “That’s what made me kinda go off the way I did. It was the first initial time and it was like, ‘Wow. This is how y’all are gonna really do it? Y’all are really gonna put this out?” I always thought it was a rumor. I thought it was a joke. Evidently it wasn’t then I started to realize, ‘Wait a minute, this is really real.’ … I shouldn’t have never paid it any attention.” (Hot 97)
