R. Kelly charged with paying bribe before marriage to Aaliyah

R. Kelly faces new bribery charge in Brooklyn criminal case

R. Kelly is facing a new bribery charge allegedly related to the disgraced singer's 1994 marriage to fellow R&B singer Aaliyah. Prosecutors asserted that in 1994, Kelly made another person to propose a bribe to an official to produce a fake identification certificate for a person classified by the alias "Jane Doe #1".

Kelly's lawyer Douglas Anton tweeted about the new charge.

After Kelly's federal trials in Chicago in April and Brooklyn in May, he'll then return to Chicago in September to face a third trial, on IL state charges of sexual assault and abuse.

They say he and his entourage headed up a racketeering operation, across two decades, which recruited women and under-age girls for illegal sexual activity. The 52-year-old singer, who remains in federal custody, is scheduled to go on trial in Chicago in April, and the following month in NY for other sexual abuse charges.

This most recent charge has been added to a growing list of charges filed by NY prosecutors, among federal charges and other state charges.

In addition, the breaches of other transfer rules "were found to be less serious than those attributed to Chelsea FC by FIFA".

Kelly was also indicted in NY at that time with exploiting five victims, identified only as "Jane Does".

It looks like music fans may finally get an answer to a long-winded question about R. Kelly and Aaliyah.

Greenberg has previously insisted the _Ignition _singer had "no idea" Aaliyah was 15 when they tied the knot. Smith repeated that assertion during an on-screen interview in the Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, which aired in January.

The indictment didn't identify the person who was paid the bribe in order to get the fake ID, except to say that the person was a public employee. Kelly has pleaded not guilty to the original NY charges. The charges allow the prosecutors more wiggle room as they are then able to tag Kelly as the leader of a criminal enterprise. The show prompted Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx to make a public plea requesting potential witnesses or victims to come forward.

"That broke my heart - I was so disappointed in him", Demetrius said about Kelly impregnating his young girlfriend. At the time, his client was merely "leading a touring musician's life", he added.
