Shocking Things We Learned About Aaliyah After Her Death
] Families of people killed by police officers and activists gathered at the feet of the Spirit of Detroit statue in front of the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center in Detroit. On July 20, 2022 Detroit police arrested six unknown individuals for chaining themselves to a precinct of the Detroit Police Department, their protest honoring Jones. The Detroit chapter of the Black Youth Project 100 and Black Lives Matter Detroit organized the rally on what would have been her 14th birthday. Protestors pleaded for the termination of Officer Weekley as he had been selected to co-chair the Detroit Police Department‘s Committee on Race and Equality. Grandmother Mertilla Jones said, “Accountability needs to be expected from cases like this, because cops can’t keep killing people and getting away with it.” Weekley’s retrial started in September 2022.He was charged with involuntary manslaughter and “negligent firing of a weapon causing death”.
Though Dash and Aaliyah spent a lot of time apart working on individual projects, they were planning a future together. “As soon as she had time, we were getting married,” he told MTV News. “She was the one—she was definitely the one for me.”
Dash said Aaliyah treated each day like it was special, even if they were just hanging out and enjoying some low-key, personal time together. Aftermeeting in 2000 through an accountant, they couldn’t stand to be away from each other. Aaliyah was known for her impeccable sense of style. She could effortlessly wear a pair of baggy jeans and a crop top one day and a Roberto Cavalli dress the next. At the time of her death, Jones and Aaliyah were developing a girl’s clothing line called Dolly Pop.
