Inside info On Aaliyah Death:

To this day it has been whispered among insiders inside her camp that the only reason Aaliyah died due to her uncle Barry Hankerson, who decided to change up her single release. Instead of releasing the scheduled “More Than A Woman” video, her uncle wanted to change it to “Rock The Boat” which was filmed in the Bahamas. The other issue is after the video wrapped Aaliyah wanted to get back to Florida to attend Da Brat’s party and see her boyfriend Damon Dash. It was an unauthorized flight and an overloaded jet filled with too much luggage and people which caused them to crash. Killing Aaliyah and her glam squad. Aaliyah took an emergency weekend off from filming the Matrix and Queen of the Dammed to fulfill her uncle’s demands which she gave up her life for.
