R. Kelly faces trial for bribery Charges for 1994 Marriage to 15-year-old Aaliyah

The year 2019 was not in R. Kelly’s favor. R.Kelly continues to rise every day as new allegations. This year. In several jurisdictions, R. Kelly was charged with criminal charges on allegations of sexual abuse of minors.

According to the New York Times, on Thursday, R. Kelly was charged with a new bribery count arising from a 1994 effort to obtain a fake document.

The new charge is an addition to a number of federal charges against R. Kelly, who has been accused for more than two decades of abussing women and girls, including rape, forced labour, and sending child pornography through state lines.

In 1994, he was accused of bribing his way by obtaining a marriage license for Aaliyah Dana Haughton who listed her age as 18 (although she was 15 years old).

Kelly and Aaliyah married at the age of 27 in 1994. As she dropped her first song, “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number,” released in 1994 and produced by R. Kelly Aaliyah was just 14.

Aaliyah died in a plane crash at 22 years of age in 2001.

Steven Greenberg, Kelly’s attorney, said his client had “no idea” Aaliyah was 15 when they met in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“My perception is that she wasn’t pretending to be 15, and she had to lie about her age to get married,” said Mr Greenberg at the time.

Greenberg added that the latest “appears not to change the world materially” indictment.
