R. Kelly is facing new charges related to his illegal marriage to Aaliyah. According to court documents obtained by Complex, the disgraced singer is accused of paying a public official to create a fake ID for an individual identified as “Jane Doe #1.”
Federal prosecutors claim the alleged bribery took place on August 30th, 1999, just one day before Kelly is sad to have married 15-year-old Aaliyah.
In the documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, Kelly's tour manager Demetrius Smith said he purchased a fake ID for Aaliyah so she would be able to marry Kelly.
The marriage was annulled by the late singer's parents after six months.
Per the document:
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.
