Damon Dash Remembers Aaliyah Ten Years After Her Death

We can't believe how much time has gone by. Today marks the tenth anniversary of Aaliyah's tragic and unfortunate death. The singer died in a small plane crash in the Bahamas on August 25, 2001. It feels like it was just yesterday.

Damon Dash, who was Aaliyah's boyfriend at the time of her death, remembers her and how unbelievably heartbreaking it was for him when she passed away. He says:

"My heart was broken. Nothing prepares you for that. She was intelligent and she caught me. I'm the kind of guy who says things sometimes just to make myself laugh, but she would just catch me making jokes for me. I couldn't get anything past her. She had a very quick mind and a very kind heart.

Our time together meant so much that when we got more time, we felt like that [engagement] would be next. She was one of the best people I ever met. Even with the pain I felt, I would do it all over again."

We can't believe it's been 10 years since her death. She was such a beautiful person inside and out and we admired her tremendous talent. She left us way too soon.

We will always miss you, baby girl.

    I don't know him, but his statement seems very genuine, he seems like a great guy. Jugding from this, I think they both were very lucky in that relationship.
