R. Kelly is still incarcerated for sex crimes in New York, Minnesota, and his home state of Illinois. He’s allegedly committed these crimes with many underage girls for decades now. He is still being held without bond as a trial date still hasn’t been set.
Now, more information is being dug up on Kelly that can put him away for a long time. According to legal documents obtained by Complex, federal prosecutors are accusing Kelly of bribing a public official to get Aaliyah a fake ID so she could marry him. Aaliyah was identified as “Jane Doe #1.”
The bribery supposedly went down on August 30, 1994. This is coincidentally one day before Kelly and Aaliyah got married. She was listed as being 18-years-old on the day of the wedding. Aaliyah was actually 15 at the time.
“On or about August 30, 1994, within the Northern District of Illinois, the defendant ROBERT SYLVESTER KELLY, together with others, did knowingly and intentionally cause another individual to promise and tender to a public officer and public employee property, to wit: Unites States currency, that such public officer and public employee was not authorized by law to accept, with the intent to influence the performance of an act related to the employment and function of a public officer and public employee, to wit: the creation of a fraudulent identification document for Jane Doe #1, an individual whose identity is known to the Grand Jury, in violation of Illinois Criminal Code Sections 5/33-l(a) and 5/5-1.”
The marriage between Kelly and Aaliyah ended up being annulled in less than a year. Kelly was exposed on Lifetime’s ‘Surviving R. Kelly‘ docuseries back in January for his sex crimes and marriage to Aaliyah. He has denied being married to her but his lawyer, Steven Greenberg, denied that on ‘Good Morning America‘ this year.
