Appearing on “The Real” today, Dame Dash said that if he had been in the Bahamas with Aaliyah before that fateful plane ride, she would still be alive today.
“There’s no chance if I was there, we would’ve been on that plane,” he said.
Host Jeannie Mai asked Dash about a comment he had made on a recent episode of the VH1 reality show “Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn,” where he said that Aaliyah’s death — as well as that of his mother — had turned him into a monster, wondering whether there as any chance he could have been on the doomed plane.
“There is no chance that, if I was there, we would have been on that plane.” he said. “So it would have never happened that way.”
Dash explained that he had been against her going to the Bahamas to shoot the “Rock the Boat” video in the first place, but she felt like she had to go. And when she told him that she didn’t like the plane that they were supposed to fly out on, again he warned her against it.
“If I was there, I would have made sure that that jet that was supposed to be for her … she would have been on that,” Dash continued. “I wouldn’t have got on that plane, you know what I’m saying? So it probably would have been different. But you know um, everything happens for a reason. You know, and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and you just gotta deal with the cards that life deals you.”
