As reported in 2016, R. Kelly secretly constructed a “heavily guarded” room where he allegedly lured underage girls to perform humiliating sex acts. Despite the many claims he kidnapped, assaulted and brainwashed the girls, the star denied any wrongdoing.

“That broke my heart – I was so disappointed in him,” Demetrius said about R. Kelly impregnating his young girlfriend. “I really believed him when he said he wasn’t messing with Aaliyah because I questioned him. I was lost for words.”

Aaliyah and the sleazy rapper previously denied rumors of the two tying-the-knot when she was just a teenager, despite the marriage certificate surfacing.

Demetrius noted that he was there when the disgraced rapper and former superstar got married in a small room, wearing casual clothes. In fact, he admitted he even forged documents claiming Aaliyah was 18 years and able to be legally married!

“I’m not proud of that – I had papers forged for them because Aaliyah was underage. We got the marriage license and we were in a hotel in Maywood, Illinois,” said Demetrius.
