Ok, correct me if I'm wrong. But when Aaliyah died in 2002, wasn't it reported that she and Damon Dash were very close to being engaged. If so then who is the mother of his daughter?

Damon and Stacy Dash are cousins.

Aaliyah died in August 2001 and last I heard they were engaged before she died. Now, if his daughter is 6, that means his daugheter was 1 year old or yonger when Aaliyah died. So, was Aaliyah being played or did her relationship with Damon just move really fast? Hmmmmm

Thank you whom ever you are for correcting the idiots on Dame Dash title and position...apparently they have been lead by the media into believing he is a prick and all the other dumb ass names that want to call a Business Man that is no-nonsense person and only wants perfection!!! That is how he obtained his wealth and built his empire and will continue to venture off into other businesses and turn those around as well.

Dame is a modern day hero!!!

He is the cousin of actress Stacey Dash and was engaged to R&B singer Aaliyah until her death in August 2001.Roy and Dash started dating in the late 90s and Roy ensured her place in his life by producing a daughter for him in December 1999. The pair split soon after and Dash started dating the beautiful Aaliyah Haughton. The two shared an intense romance and were planning marriage. Unfortunately, they never made it to the alter due to the plane crash that took Aaliyah's life in August 2001.

One observer has this to say,"Damon was madly in love with Aaliyah. She was the love of his life and he's not at all happy with Rachel. You can tell by the look on his face when he's with her."

i think that damon truely loved aaliyah, and that rachel is stupid to think that he would ever love her the way he loved aaliyah. pictures speak for themselves. There is not one picture where Damon or Rachel are really smiling. But who better to marry than your baby Mama. I herd the reason her married her is because she new alot of stuff about him, that he did not want to be aired, so he married her to keep her quiet. Don't get me wrong Rachel is beautiful,but Aaliyah looks better with him,they were eachothers equal.

Let's be for real, that woman that Damon Dash married, he was messing with her before he meet Aaliyah, i hate to say this, but these women are a piece of work, she was hating on Aaliyah, because woman think that once the have a kid, that man belongs to them. I think that he should have never married Rachel Roy, if he really loved and respected Aaliyah, ok his heart was broke, but why go back to what he didn't marry in the first place, So what it was in 2005, you see it did not last. He was a player and he was still a player after he got married. Who's to say that he was not messing with this women behind Aaliyah's back. I just wish that we had cell phone records to see how many times she talked to him, while she was in the Bahamas. If he was her man, his sorry ass should have been with her to tell her not to get on that damn plane, what is so important, that he could not have gone with her. She was 22 years old, she needed someone to tell her not to get on that plane. God rest the rest of the people that was on that plane also. But her Bodyguard, what a joke, 300 lbs, he weight, i read the internet, the equipment was 1500 lbs, what was her Bodyguard thinking. I loved Aaliyah, but people remember one thing, don't be in a hurry to go nowhere. You don't know how many times, i wish that Aaliyah would have just waited until the next day to take a regular 747, a larger plane. God only knows, please respect her and pray for her family, they need all of our prayers. Please go see the movie, it will be out on her 32nd Birthday, please do it for Aaliyah and her family. I dd not know who Selena was, but i did buy the movie, and i loved the movie, but i cry at the end, each time. I always wonder if she ever got to go to Disney World, but they did not say. She wanted a farm with lots of animals. One thing i can say, she said that she spent more time on Big Bertha, than anywhere, and it must have been tough, but she was with her family 24/7, so they can cherish that the rest of their lives. Pray for Rashad, to fine a good wife and happiness, he needs a good strong woman. I would love to see and hear he has a wife and children to share his Sister Legacy with, it can live on in his children, her nieces and nephews, you know. Please go see the movie, i know i am. AMEN
