The light continues to dim on rnb singer R Kelly. The singer is currently in jail awaiting trial on an array of charges ranging from 10 sexual abuse charges to transferring girls across state lines to now bribery. It’s fair to say that R Kelly is in some serious hot water. They say your past can come back to haunt you, and it looks like this is playing out for R Kelly.
It’s now being reported that the one time respected singer is now facing charges for bribing a government official. Reports circulating are that the bribery charges laid against Kelly has to do with him bribing Kelly bribing a government official to create false documents.
Those false documents, well- allegedly those false documents had to do with some game playing with Aaliyah’s age. The 1994 claimed bribery is said to have been to have the government official create documents stating Aaliyah is 18 years old. The late Aaliyah was actually 15 years old at the time she is said to have married Kelly. Kelly was 27 years old. From CBC:
The U.S. attorney’s office declined to comment about whom the fake ID was meant for, and the indictment didn’t mention the wedding, but a person familiar with the investigation confirmed the “Jane Doe” was Aaliyah. The person wasn’t authorized to discuss details of the new charge and spoke on condition of anonymity.
