Always a sadd thing a feeling that good had to leave this world too soon. I often wonder just how huge she would of become. No doubt Aaliyah really not second to anyone. The pain for the family each time . very sorry.

She was picked on in school for being short, unless she had some kinda of growth spurt, she was not 5'7

Her bone structure is very small, she didn't look any taller than 5'4" honestly.

Ginuwine is 6'2 Busta Rhymes is 6'1 if you look at pics of her with them 5'7 seems about right

She definitely didn't look 5' 7". I've seen enough people of genuine 5' 7" height, in person and on TV, to know that Aaliyah was not that height. 5' 5" is more accurate, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that height for a woman anyway.

She looked near the height of Li in Romeo Must Die. 165 cm is way more plausible than 167 cm.

5,5 is pretty short but she was damn beautiful R.I.P

Yeah, 5'5" is not "way above average".

5'6 or 5'7 for a girl is way above average here in the states. Beautiful actress seemed taller like 5'9

Aaliyah was very tiny. She was 5'3". She was very tiny...she might have been 5'2.5" tall.

Here is a video of Aaliyah in bare foot dancing with Missy Lil Kim and Da Brat
Click Here she isn't standing up straight but she towers over Missy and Kim

There's a scene in Romeo Must Die where Jet Li and Aaliyah enter some sort of garage right before getting shot at. There's a full body shot of both Aaliyah and Jet Li including feet and Aaliyah looks to be about the same height as Jet Li. I can't remember if she was wearing heels in that scene, but if Jet Li's 5'6 and she was only his height then she can't be any taller than 5'6.

I saw her in person and she was barely my height and I am 5'3.

Hmm .. she's tricky. In photos with beau Damon Dash who is 5'10", 5'11"-ish, she does look 5'7". But I found a really good site with all types of rare photos of her. One has Beyonce and her standing face to face and they do look the same height. Plus photos with 5-foot-1 Lisa "Left Eye Lopes", 5-foot-1 Missy Elliott and 4-foot-11 Lil' Kim all do prove that she CLOSE to 5'7" but not on the dot. She was extremely thin which made her seem taller. I think she was 5'6" and some change.
