The New York Times is reporting that federal prosecutors are accusing R. Kelly of bribery in relation to his 1994 marriage to 15-year-old Aaliyah when he was 27. The Times’ report suggests that Kelly bribed a government to assist him in obtaining an ID that said Aaliyah was an 18-year-old.
This charge of bribery is adding to Kelly’s already significant currently-open indictments, the most recent of which was a racketeering indictment filed against him that also includes allegations of possession of child pornography and more. Read about R. Kelly’s ongoing legal issues here.
