The music community still mourns the death of Aaliyah almost fifteen years later. And there’s no doubt in our minds how difficult it may be as family, friends, fans to still try come to an understanding as to why she had to leave us so soon, so young. A question that will never be answered is sparked up by gems she has left behind: classic hits such as, “Are You That Somebody,” and “Rock The Boat,” her phenomenal acting roles in Queen of the Damned and Romeo Must Die, and the inspiration she had through the wisdom she shared in various interviews and interactions, leaving everyone to fall in love by her presence. Despite Damon Dash’s relationship with the Princess of R&B being private, many fans were aware of how in love the two were. Damon even revealed the two planned to marry before her death. In a new episode of Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn, Damon Dash expresses how losing Aaliyah has had a huge affect on him.
“Everything that scared me is losing people I love and everyone that I’ve really loved, as it relates to females, I’ve lost. So what it’s made me be, the animal that I am, is that I don’t want to sit down and think about the things that are hurting me.”
Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn isn’t the first time Damon Dash openly admits how heartbreaking it was losing Aaliyah.
“The energy we created together for people to observe was kind of crazy. We’d be in a room full of people talking to each other and it felt like everyone was listening but it would be just us. It would be like we were the only ones in the room,” The music mogul told Billboard in 2011.
“It was like something was going down in history every time I was with her. Every time I was around her I felt it was the place to be. Our time together meant so much that when we got more time, we felt like that [engagement] would be next. She was one of the best people I ever met. Even with the pain I felt I would do it all over again. ”
Make sure to catch Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn on Wednesday, April 13 at 8/7c on VH1.
