She made this known in Lifetime's upcoming show "Surviving R. Kelly", which will air on Thursday.

The documentary, produced by Dream Hampton and titled Surviving R Kelly, features interviews from women who have been involved with or have been allegedly sexually and physically abused by the R&B singer.

⚠️URGENT MESSAGE ⚠️ Hi Team Aaliyah, it has come to our attention that Aaliyah's mother Diane Haughton has reached out to a fan as a call to action for the Special Ones (As she so lovingly calls us) with this direct quote in response to the Lifetime Surviving RKelly Documentary.

"'I Believe I Can Fly' is a powerful song and it inspired a lot of people", Legend noted. "I believe these women and don't give a f*ck about protecting a serial child rapist".

You know you want it.' I took it as a joke. His legal team claims that the documentary is filled with false information and they threatened to file a federal lawsuit if it airs. According to Lifetime's rep, "Lifetime has always been a brand that champions women's stories" a.k.a they ain't never scared. He claimed that he witnessed Kelly and Aaliyah's wedding and helped get false documents so that an underage Aaliyah could Wednesday.
