Diane Haughton also made a statement in regards to DMX, who was very close with Aaliyah as great friends. They worked on collabs such as the 2000 film Romeo Must Die and the song which featured on the soundtrack for the movie – Come Back In One Piece. DMX even named his very own daughter after Aaliyah too, with many dedications and tributes through poetry and generally just always holding it down for Baby Girl's legacy.
