Aaliyah dated Dame Dash a few years after her secret underage marriage to R Kelly.

Dash will be featured in Surviving R. Kelly Part II: The Reckoning, and TMZ has obtained the part of his interview.

“Aaliyah was like the sacrificial lamb after all that bro ’cause she didn’t deserve none of that,” he says in the clip. “Good, good soul. Good girl. Wasn’t even really so resentful, was just like, ‘Let that man live just keep him the f*ck away from me.’ That’s all she wanted. She was just happy to be away.

“And I know the whole story. I know there was a cover-up and all of that, but how did that cover it up? It just made the conversation less crazy. Oh, he married a child? That was a headline. That was like a rumor. That was something talked about like it was normal. It wasn’t like, “Eww disgusting he married a 13-year-old.’ It was like, ‘Oh, you married Aaliyah?’ She’s 13.”

She was actually 15 when she married Kelly. When the interviewer corrected Dash he said "15 is 13" and "I don't have to accurate because I don't care ... anything under 18 is disgusting.

 Surviving R. Kelly Part II: The Reckoning airs tonight on Lifetime.

Dash may face his own Kelly-like reckoning as multiple women have accused him of sexual assault.
