Hip hop mogul Damon Dash, who was Aaliyah's boyfriend at the time, reveals new information concerning her death, and it's pretty interesting.

In an interview with ET's Kevin Frazier, Dame claims that he told Aaliyah not to fly to the Bahamas to shoot a video with director Hype Williams because it was unnecessary. He also said she was skeptical of the small plane booked for her travel and hesitant to use it. 

Then Dame dropped a bomb.

He said that Lenny Kravitz sent a plane for Aaliyah, to safely get home from the Bahamas. But according to Dame, Hype Williams took Lenny's jet for himself and sent Aaliyah on the other plane that crashed.
