Isaiah Washington Claims R. Kelly Did Not Abuse Aaliyah: She Was In Control

In an interview with DJ Vlad, actor Isaiah Washington defended the convicted abuser R. Kelly, saying he does not believe Aaliyah was a victim of the disgraced star.

“She was very in control of her being, but she was a businesswoman too. Super smart,” he told Vlad. “I think she was in control of that situation even at her age.”

“She was 15 going on 30, so she was in control of that whole situation,” he added. “I don’t judge her, but she was very smart and very mature and very in control of her situation. I don’t believe one minute that Aaliyah was made to do anything that Aaliyah didn’t want to do.”

Vlad made sure the clear up where he stood on this issue. “For the record, I disagree with Isaiah on this,” Vlad wrote on Instagram. “That’s why I brought up Aaliyah’s age at the time.”

People are calling Isaiah’s comments “creepy.”

A 2021 trial in Brooklyn federal court convicted Kelly for violations of the Mann Act and racketeering. A 2022 trial in Chicago federal court convicted Kelly for three child pornography charges and three charges of enticing a minor, but acquitted him of charges of conspiracy to obstruct justice in relation to his 2008 trial.

The Brooklyn court sentenced Kelly to 30 years imprisonment; his sentencing in Chicago court is slated for February 2023.[29] As of September 2022, Kelly is an inmate of Metropolitan Correctional Center, Chicago. He continues to challenge his two convictions.
