A woman who claimed to be R. Kelly and Aaliyah's biological daughter a few weeks ago has now sat down for an interview with TLYoungBoss. Moreover, she shared a part of her story in a video testimony on TikTok, which many quickly dismissed. “Okay, y’all, my name is Love,” she said in the video. “My given name. I am the biological daughter of Aaliyah Haughton and Robert Kelly, R. Kelly. I just want to tell my truth and tell my mother’s truth because I feel like it’s time and it’s needed. I feel like I went through so many things as far as keeping this identity and deliberating with different family members. You know the energy, you guys know how it can get. I just want the world to know the best part of me. I am also accepting of my mother Aaliyah Haughton. I’ve been shook around…”

In this new interview, she acknowledged how crazy her story sounds from the outside, but still expressed determination. "What made you want to share this information with the world? 'Cause sometimes some people will know these things and they'll just take it to the grave." Then, Love (or Lagena) responded modestly. "Even I, I sound like I'm crazy. It's going to be hard to prove, but I know from my heart and the fact that they went so hard to try to dispel what I was saying."

Woman Doubles Down On Being R. Kelly And Aaliyah's Biological Daughter

"You don't resemble R. Kelly and Aaliyah to a tee," the interviewer remarked. "What would you say to that, as far as someone saying that, 'Hey, you don't look like your dad, you don't look like your mother.'" Furthermore, Lagena's answer was quite interesting. "Well, I have two words: DNA and biology. Everybody don't look like their parents. Somebody look like their grandparents, somebody look like their great-great grandparents and great-aunties. That's how life is."

"They do all kinds of wild s**t, and then they f**k up, and then they wanna erase reality like it never happened," another interviewer remarked. "There are so many of these children who are victims and casualties of their boss's systemic sociopathic ways."
