R Kelly charged with paying bribe before marriage to Aaliyah

8 months ago


Singer R Kelly is facing new bribery charges that appear to be related to his 1994 marriage to then 15-year-old R&B singer Aaliyah.

A revised indictment unsealed in the federal court in Brooklyn accuses Kelly of scheming with others to pay for a fake ID for someone identified only as “Jane Doe” on August 30, 1994.

A day later, Kelly married Aaliyah in a secret ceremony.

The marriage was annulled months later because of her age.

Defence lawyer Douglas Anton called the latest charge against his client “ridiculous and absurd”.
