In response to it, Aaliyah said: “I’m very open with my parents.
“My parents are like my best friends.

“Because, I mean, it’s normal.

“But I was open with my parents and I was responsible when I was doing it.”

“Even when it comes to relationships, I am very open.
“Every time I was like talking to a guy or dating a guy or anything, I would tell my mom about it.
“My dad, I would only tell when it was going to actually turn into something serious. Like, the actual dating and not just talking.”
