A former girlfriend of R Kelly is making shocking new claims about the singer’s relationship with Aaliyah.
Lisa Van Allen sat down for a very revealing interview on Vlad TV in which she said that R Kelly married Aaliyah because the singer was pregnant with his child.
She went on to state that the marriage was annulled as soon as Aaliyah got an abortion, claiming the two only wed to protect Kelly.

Allegation: Lisa Van Allen (above) claims that R Kelly told her he married Aaliyah after she became pregnant so could protect himself after learning she was pregnant
Age: Aaliyah was just 15 at the time, and the marriage was annulled as soon as she had an abortion with the two promising to never discuss what happened, Lisa Van Allen claimed (Aaliyah ad Kelly in 1995)
‘He told me that they were married, that she was pregnant, that he did doctor up the marriage certificate,’ explained Allen.
‘So she could say she was 18, so they could get married, and the reason was if he thought that she was 18 then he couldn’t get charged if someone found out she was pregnant.’
Allen said that the marriage lasted ‘until they were able to get the abortion and get it annulled.’
She went on to say that everything she was sharing came directly from Kelly.
Allen explained that the two bonded over the abuse they suffered when they were young, and had been confessing things to one another when he told her these stories.
‘And this came out of his mouth, I could take a lie detector test to this, this is what he told me. Specifically told me,’ she said in the interview.
‘It’s not a rumor, its the truth.’
When asked how old Kelly was when he allegedly began raping his former protege, Allen admitted she was not know.
‘Honestly I am not really sure the age but I definitely know she was 15 when they got married,’ explained Allen.

She did claim however that Aaliyah’s mother was also intimate with the singer.
‘He said that when Aaliyah would go to sleep he would go into the living room and they would do sexual acts on the couch while Aayliah was asleep in the bedroom,’ said Allen of Kelly.
And as for why Aaliyah never spoke of the relationship, Allen said she was told the two had a pact they vowed to honor until death did them part.
Allen admitted in the Lifetime documentary Surviving R Kelly that she was the woman who stole and then leaked one of the singer’s sex tapes.
She was just 17 and believed that she was Kelly’s girlfriend at the time due to the fact that she spent all her time with him and they were having a sexual relationship.
She was ultimately one of the few alleged victims to break free from Kelly on her own terms, and says in the episode that she started seeing the singer in a different light after he convinced her to have a threesome with another girl but did not reveal her actual age.
It was that same girl, who was just 14, that Kelly could be seen with on the tape Allen claimed to have lifted from his library.
Allen struggled to maintain her composure while recalling the events, and at one point suddenly shut down and begins to silently cry.
She then said: ‘I just didn’t know there was a point in time they were talking about killing me.’
