R. Kelly is denying a claim by one of his accusers that he had a sexual relationship with Aaliyah’s mother. TMZ reports that Kelly is totally denying claims by Lisa Van Allen that the singer told her he had sex with Diane Haughton, Aaliyah’s mom, several times.

Van Allen, who was one of the women accusing Kelly of abuse in Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly, made the claim regarding Kelly and Haughton in an interview with Vlad TV. She said that Kelly stayed at Aaliyah’s Detroit home in the 1990s and that after Aaliyah fell asleep, he would hook up with Haughton.

Kelly is telling those close to him that he and Haughton never had anything other than a friendly relationship, and believes Van Allen is just trying to smear his name for more headlines.

In January, Haughton publicly refuted allegations by Jovante Cunningham in Surviving R. Kelly that she saw Kelly having sex with a then-fifteen Aaliyah on his tour bus. Haughton said, “The woman and so-called back up singer that describes seeing, meeting or ever breathing the same air as my daughter, Aaliyah, is lying and is a liar. My husband and I were always on tour with her and at interviews and every place she went throughout her entire career. Whoever this woman is, I have never seen her before anywhere on planet earth, until now.”

Kelly married Aaliyah when she was fifteen, though Kelly’s lawyer claims that Kelly lied about her age.
