Among the many claims that the documentary 'Surviving R Kelly' features, Lisa Van Allen's accusation also has one of the singer's personal confessions.
While the legal and public onslaught on singer R. Kelly still continues, more and more things about him are 'resurfacing' as the victims bravely come out to the media. While an aggravated sexual assault case is already pending, in a recent interview, R. Kelly accuser Lisa Van Allen dropped a whammy in relation to Kelly’s alleged relationship with the late singer Aaliyah, and her mother.
Lisa, one of the women featured in the new documentary 'Surviving R. Kelly', told in the interview that Kelly had confided in her about getting his teen bride Aaliyah pregnant. Moreover, she also claimed that he told her he was sleeping with Aaliyah's mother.
According to Mirror, Kelly - real name Robert Sylvester Kelly - married Aaliyah in 1994 when she was 15 and he was 27.
Even when the marriage certificate claimed that the later singer was 18, Kelly's tour manager Demetrius Smith admitted that he helped forge the documents.
Now, in an interview with Vlad TV , Lisa claims Kelly talked to her about the reasons behind the wedding.
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 her interviewer says he was led to believe that Kelly married Aaliyah because he got her pregnant, Lisa said: "Yep, that's exactly what happened."
While this only serves to make the embattled singer's situation worse, some might think that this fact could have been reported earlier. However, Lisa also added that her information is not wrong, and neither is she making it up.
"And this came out of his mouth," she added. "I could take a lie detector test to this, this is what he told me, specifically told me."
She reiterates that it's "not a rumour, it's the truth".
While the level of added accusations seems serious, the interviewer pointed out 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."
Sometimes I think hmm, maybe he really didn’t do it but then I remember how there’s an actual video of him peeing on a child and how he married Aaliyah when she was only 15 and he was almost 30. 🤷🏻♀️— moon child🌙 (@meowchim_x) 6 March 2019

The interviewer sounded visibly shocked when he heard 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.
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.
In the recent famous interview with Gayle King, Kelly had an emotional breakdown about the allegations and the subsequent charges that he was facing. He is currently on bail after someone paid off the amount of money he owed in child support.
