The ‘Love Jones’ actor recalled one instance in which he had an awkward encounter with Aaliyah and her mentor, R. Kelly, following their rumored marriage in 1995.

The singer was on a promo run for her debut album, “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number.” According to Bellamy, the 15-year-old budding songstress and then-28-year-old Kelly arrived at an interview on “Bill Bellamy: Booty Call” in matching outfits “like a cute couple.”
“About four questions in, Robert called the whole interview off. ‘We gotta go, we leaving,'” Bellamy recalled.
The former “MTV” Jams host says he later discovered that R. Kelly was “super jealous.”
