Aaliyah's Parents Sue Record Company

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The parents of Aaliyah sued Virgin Records on Monday, alleging negligence and recklessness caused the plane crash last year that killed the 22-year-old singer and actress.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of Diane and Michael Haughton, also named as defendants several video production companies and Blackhawk International Airways, the company that operated the plane that crashed.

Aaliyah had been in the Bahamas to film a video and was returning to Florida on a charter flight last August when it crashed on takeoff. All nine people aboard the Cessna 402-B aircraft died. Investigators said the twin-engine plane was at least 700 pounds overweight.

A message left at Virgin Records after business hours Monday was not returned; no answered the phone at the offices of Blackhawk.

The Haughtons allege in their lawsuit that a ``dangerous and unsafe configuration'' of the Cessna caused the crash.

The families of two other crash victims filed similar lawsuits Monday.
