A new charge has been filed against an already troubled R.Kelly for bribing an official to get a fake ID to marry Aaliyah, two decades ago. R.Kelly’s woes appear to be compounding following the new charge levelled against him for bribery over a fake identity to marry the late Aaliyah.
According to PageSix, the music star had over two decades ago, bribed a public official so he could marry singer Aaliyah when she was 15 and he was 27.

It would be recalled that earlier in the year, R.Kelly’s former back up singer, Jovante Cunningham has revealed that he had sex with late music star, Aaliyah when she was just 15 years old.
