When she actually saw the plane she said I dont like this plane,' he says in the clip. And I was like, Well, dont get on it. She was like, Well, I got to because I got work to do. She got on the plane and she always had a very serious fear of planes in general, so she had to overcome a fear to get on that plane on the way there. But what I was really more tight about was that I had heard that Lenny Kravitz had offered her a jet and that Hype had took the jet. So, thats what really pissed me off about the situation when I heard about that. You can ask Hype about that. Although the reporter continued to press Damon Dashfor what exactly was said when Dash confronted Williams about the plane swap, he remained tight-lipped. Ask him! he said. Because of my respect for Aaliyah and her family Everyones respectful of her memory. No one really speaks on it So in respect for her memory, I dont say a lot of things.
