One of Kelly’s alleged back up singers, Jovante Cunningham admitted she witness Kelly having sex with underage Aaliyah on a tour bus. The allegedly sexual act was revealed by Jovante on a docu series, Surviving R Kelly which aired on Life Time TV last night. Diane addressed Jovante’s allegations. Here is some of what Diane said:
“My husband and I were always on tour with [Aaliyah] an at interviews and every place she went throughout her entire career,” the statement reads. “Whoever this woman is [who is making the allegations], I have never seen her before anywhere on planet earth, until now.”
